Not Losing Money on NABCs
Well, I decided to add an additional like. I personally think Chris’s proposal was too complicated, and he didn’t explain initially that it could make entries for most people lower, if that was desired, but I like the fact that we are seriously discussing pricing models for how ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
Right now, if I entered a national event, and happened to win too many matches, I would have to: A, buy a new plane ticket home. As this plane ticket is one way, and last minute, it’s pretty expensive B. Pay for extra nights hotel. Again, the hotel rate ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
This is a bizarre comment. Currently there are discounts for under 26, did that cause a revolt of everyone else that they were treated unfairly? For the record, pretty much every synagogue I have ever been associated with has a heavily discounted membership fee for young adults (typically 50-75% off ...

Just Desert – Someone is ...
Mark Leonard's bidding problem: x KQTxxxx Axx QT
Well, I also bid 5H.... I thought 4H was just too whimpy when ak 6th of clubs and AX of hearts makes a decent slam
Penalty or responsive?
I really think that anything other than penalty is silly here. A. The same hand bid 1H and 2H, so there is no guarantee they have a fit B. If you had 4 Spades, just bid them. It’s at the 2 level, while a minor is at the 3 ...
You Suspect a Psyche
Why does it matter if your opponent psyched. That does not change the strength of yours or your partner’s hands. Your partner has 5-8 with 4+ H, and you have a balanced 20 with a good fit. Suppose partner has QJ 5th of hearts and an ace (a max ...
