To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
To Ken Rhodes, I guess that I did not make my position clear. I do not believe that the 2C overcall is a recorder form. If one writes this hand up in a recorder form, the recorder should throw it away as frivolous. To me, it is bridge. Please note ...
7S puzzle in segment 7
Ginossar/Williken were in 7NT on these cards making with the same heart finesse onside.
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
I held a hand that was similiar to North's holdings without the J of clubs(Jxx x JTxx QT9xx, 3 HCP) recently with the same vulnerability. My RHO opened 1D in 2nd seat after my partner's pass and like the North player in this example overcalled 2C. Suffice ...
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: KQ9 AK4 8 KQ6542
Ah yes, another example of the Bridge World's death hand with the typical results(some people decide to be honest and bid 3C while others said a prayer(please do not raise or 1430) and bid 2H)...
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
To David Caprera, I get your viewpoint but be honest, how important is the 1st day of the BRQ? I apologize for the rudeness of the question, but doesn't the carryover get decimated after day 2 and day 3? For experienced players like yourself, Day 1 is a padding ...
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I support Max's proposal even though I and my potential partnerships would fall in the lower quadrant of participants in the BRP's with 2 conditions. One, these pairs can only drop-in into day 2 of this event not day 3. If one allows pairs to drop in on ...
Double Standards
This has been an entertaining NABC and I am not even there. You have the Platinum Pairs appeal. From my reading of the old Appeal books, Zia hasn't been involved in one of those since the 80's. If one thought the Vanderbilt was going to be appeal free ...
The playing longevity of bridge experts v chess experts
Chess and bridge are completely different games. Chess is a game of perfect information while bridge is not. There is one skill that is mandatory for becoming a world class bridge player(and world class poker player) that is not required in chess: table presence. Table presence is not something ...
National Champions in Limited Events: Fair or Foul?
To Matthew, I want to congratulate you on your accomplishment. I know of 3 players in my local area(1 deceased) who have over 10,000 masterpoints that have no NABC title. You have achieved the hardest obstacle to GLM status. All you have to do is get the 7600 ...
Bessis and Volcker Lead Platinum Pairs
Congratulations to the qualifiers. To denote the strength of this hallowed event, it is not just the people who have survived to this point but the quality pairs that have just been eliminated.
