Jean La Traverse's bidding problem: 6 AK542 KT965 A4
Looks like we both had the same idea! I posted first during the match while dummy on the subsequent hand. I was east on this hand playing against Marc last night.
Expensive and random gold points
I applaud the ACBL’s initiative to offer players the opportunity to gain red and gold points. Several players have inquired about online tournaments to continue their pursuit towards Life Master. The black point online Club games have been a welcome addition as these were critical in supporting our local ...
Playing Weak NT - How do do you find a 4-4 fit in spades after 1m=1H ?
Alexander, same treatment as 4-4 GF, we use 2way NMF. Opener will support hearts first with three-card support, bid 2S with 4S denying 3 hearts or 2NT denying interest in majors.
Playing Weak NT - How do do you find a 4-4 fit in spades after 1m=1H ?
With minimum 4-4 to play we bid spades before hearts: 1m-1S-1NT-2H (pass or correct by opener). With 4-4 invitational we bid hearts before spades: 1m-1H-1NT-2S With 4-4 game force we bid hearts than 2D artifical as 2way-NMF: 1m-1H-1NT-2D With 4-5 invitational we use 2C artificial 2way-NMF; relay to 2D: 1m-1H-1NT-2C-2D-2S

Summer NABC Moved
I am the Tournament Chair for the Montreal and this post is false and of very poor taste.

Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQ5 JT 7 QJ9863
I need better to bid 2 here. My partner and I have an agreement that we don't let the opponents play at the 2-level in a known fit. I should have a chance to show my hand again so pass is best with this shapely minimum. Give ...
NAP in Summer, GNT in Fall
Most Districts have yet to complete their GNT qualifications to determine their participants for the Final. A quick look at the tournament calendar indicates 17/25 Districts may not be complete yet as of today. These Districts having not yet completed at a minimum: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 ...
