Ron Smith's bidding problem: x AQxx AKJTx xxx
Is this North's hand we're looking at, or West's?
A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
With the Stratified Swiss proposal, I could see a Strat B team that finished fourth in the Swiss KO being unhappy with that result -- they would rather play in the Bracket 2 KO against other Strat B teams instead of feeling like a long shot in the Bracket 1 KO ...
Michaels Cuebid
My partner and I distinguish between a "could be short" bid and a completely artificial bid (like a strong 1). Over the "could be short" bid, the opener often has that suit (just as a normal "3+" minor often has 4 or more), so we bid as we normally ...
Gary Ansok's bidding problem: J9 T95 AJ973 K94
I was considering bidding 2, but decided to pass. But I was wondering (even before I saw partner's hand) for how many people this might be a third-hand favorable weak 2. 1 didn't even cross my mind. One hand doesn't prove anything, of course, but ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: T9652 A6 T3 AJ94
My original comment was written before I noticed that the hand in question was a passed hand; perhaps I should have removed it. If 1N isn't forcing (because you're a passed hand or for any other reason), then I wouldn't even consider it here.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: T9652 A6 T3 AJ94
Just noticed you are a passed hand -- in that case I'd use Drury or just bid 4. Original comment: Would 1 - 1N (forcing) - 2x - 4 be a possible sequence for you? This is what a partner and I agreed on after a similar hand. Otherwise, I ...
More National Events
I've been mulling over some possible ways to make the limited NABC championships a little bit more inviting compared to similar Regional-rated events. 1st and 2nd get their pictures in the monthly Bulletin, but what about the rest? One thought, for games that award gold points anyway, would be ...
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: K9852 KT A43 A32
If I was going to do something other than Pass here, I probably should have done that on the last round.
3 cards
The only lead that causes any problems for me is a , so I have to assume that's what W will lead when he finishes spades. If I throw two from dummy, then E-W can force me to use my A before I have the clubs unblocked ...
ACBL Attendance Dropoff - 2016-2018
Robert, midweek I see the D21 regionals have "Open Pairs 5000/+", "Midflight Pairs 1500/3000" and "Gold Rush Pairs 300/750". I don't know how successful they are, but I like the idea too.
