Favorite Conventions
Well, I could give you a long list of least favorite conventions.
ACBL Ranking
Diamond Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Bidding Improvement With Weak NT?
There are strong theoretical merits to the invitational 2M. With transfers you have to go beyond 2M to show an invite and the more common, simplier systems only allow 2NT and 3M as invites. So if you have a distributional hand that doesn't want to be above the 2 ...
Exploratory Data Analysis of Chicago Club Attendance
Maybe 3$ a term? I really don't remember the amount.
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
Christopher, for interesting threads/masterpoint holdings you are the Ace. Hope to see you at your sectional next month.
Bidding Improvement With Weak NT?
I played an unusual system for years that was developed primarily by an ex-partner of mine. (Ex only because after starting a partnership with me he; changed professions, moved several states, (and a time zone away), and quit bridge for 27 years!). (I don't have this effect on all ...
Exploratory Data Analysis of Chicago Club Attendance
I'm not sure, but I think that there may be more of what I'll call membership clubs in the UK than in NA. These are clubs with an annual membership fee and lower fees for specific events for the members. This would seem to me to lead to ...
Second Round and Later Doubles When the Opps Interfere over 2!C
If I know partner will treat a double as penalty I do that. If I'm not so sure I bid 3NT.
2!d Opening to Show a Balanced 18-19 HCP?
Yes. And in Romex one of a suit bids were limited to about 17 hcp, so they couldn't use 1X-1Y-2NT for 18-19 balanced. But the more radical change was using an 1NT opening as forcing, unbalanced and strong, but not strong enough for 2C.
Postmortem Analysis of March 2020 Bridge World MSC Contest Results
One minor benefit of leading 5th best when your agreement is 4th best is that this may lead declarer astray in several different ways. For example, he may think that he doesn't need to hold up or make an avoidance play because he thinks you only could set up ...
ATB - Missed slam with double red fit
I hate with a passion the negative double with 6-5. South's call deserved to result in -530. Having said that, North has very good cards for playing in Diamonds, and it costs nothing to make a control bid on the way to 5D.
Too Many Questions for a Poll
2NT on your Left, 6C on your Right. East is on lead.
