Settle A Bet
In the continuum from great constructive raise to crappy limit raise this is somewhere in the middle
ATB - Missed Slam
you should have made both a choice
Fail to alert, the ruling and what wold you have bid?
I'm assuming the poll has E X 3? Otherwise bidding 3NT is really out there (insane?).... My answer changes with the X being included. Since N/S were the ones who caused the problem, I don't know that E's initial response is particularly relevant. The failure ...
How would you interpret 2H here?
I hate you partner....
Is ACBL Aiming for Ridicule?
ACBL affinity cards: Gold card gets you 1 gold point for every $100 you spend, platinum card gets you 1 platinum point. 1000 platinum points is automatic grand life master, 10000 automatic HOF.
Forgive this not being a bidding poll
I like 2NT as the GF slam try, with 3 being something else such as 6 solid with an outside A or whatever you agree on.
Canape Agape
I'll send you my notes if you like, precision with 4 card majors, 10-12 NT, 10-15 canape major to minor, usual nebulous 1. PM your email. We use highly modified Gazelli to sort out 5-5 from 4-5 patterns.
You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
Karen and I were married way before the internet. I called the local tournament coordinator to check for weekends that didn't conflict with a local tournament.
You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
You wonder why people are talking about GF (game forcing) food.
What does partner have?
Me too, David, so take away jacks until you wouldn't. Not sure the new ACBL will allow that as a 1 opening however (kinda joking, or am I?)
