ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Beth Palmer (1952-2019)
As another ex-Washington DC player, I echo all the above comments. A loss for her family and for her extended family in bridge.
Class of player
In the original hand, I don't think it's too demanding to require declarer to say "I'll cash a high diamond from North and then take the rest."
Different Systems
None of the responses so far addresses my question. The question is whether a pair can play different systems against different pairs. I think the ACBL permits clubs to regular conventions, so I think the "ACBL" answer is yes. But is there a provision in the laws that supercedes this ...
ACBL Competition and Conventions Committee
It seems to me that there are fewer and fewer tournaments, and more and more players playing principally or only at clubs. And clubs can allow or disallow anything they want. In the city I live in, there is pretty much one director who runs all the games. The ACBL ...
1S (4H) 4N = ?
You can make a negative double with the minors. But no one forces you to pass 5m or 6m. And it's good to have an agreement what 5 means at your next turn in various scenarios. I think that at the table, if my partner doubled, then bid ...
Ethical Or Not?
I guess the bottom line is that I should have alerted and passed, and used the hand as an opportunity to drill into her head what we play and to take time before you bid to make sure you realize what's going on (a sin I admit to committing ...
Ethical Or Not?
On the very rare occasions when I play with screens, I will hold the tray if there is a too-quick bid. I've been advocating for electronic play for almost 30 years, back to the days of The Imagination Network. It's a separate - but interesting - discussion as to whether ...
2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?
My system notes clearly define this as 15-17. 2N shows 12-14 or 18+; with the latter of course you will bid over partner's game-level signoff. (3 by opener also shows extras.) I do tend to avoid jumping in NT in auctions like this though unless my hand really ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
People have been talking about how meaningless monsterpoints have become since the 1980's, but it's clearly gotten worse. That said, I'll only say this because by posting the discussion the OP has invited it - a piece of life advice for you Michael - No good deed goes unpunished ...
Ethical Or Not?
Whose gray hair - hers or mine? We both dye our hair!
