Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
Good point. I love bridge too of course. Sadly it is looking like my retirement will probably have to be MTG as I don't think North American bridge has many years left.

Well there are other card games than bridge of course if you want something a little more complex: https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=arn&utm_content=opb-all-search-all-text-arn-opb-t12-m99&gclid=Cj0KCQiA2b7uBRDsARIsAEE9XpEM6z3P9GAEuSgwL4PoFWZ9R8nBoKxnQnxGfAGqgg3_M0zI0oxuncMaAklyEALw_wcB
World Online Championship - 1st edition 2020
They should just use funbridge in the finals because its much closer to real bridge than the BBO bots. As an aside, they should scrap GIB altogether and put Argine onto BBO.
World Online Championship - 1st edition 2020
20 tournaments for $55 with a shot at a trip and prizing seems a lot better than the ACBL's $50 for 3 tournaments, no prizing, and a grand prize that doesn't even count for Grand Life Master status.
A better rating system
Our current rating system will not get a major update until Jan.16 (enjoy the cruise Chris!). We really need the ACBL to step up ASAP so that these interruptions to service do not occur. Also, I've seen comment that suggest the UK NGS updates on a daily basis ...
Joel Brandell's bidding problem: AQxxx x Ax xxxxx
I voted 2s because that is a normal fox-lambert weak 2 bid.
ATB, or is bridge just too tough?
Something else please comment...it's a little light but as North I would x. I can always correct 3c to 3d if we don't go for penalty. If partner goes for Leb I probably still bid 3d.
1N - 3m
Responding to Jyri...I'm not sure Muppet conceals any more or less than puppet. Muppet 3h says no majors but puppet 3nt says the same thing so I see it as a wash.
1N - 3m
With slam interest a 2c bid might catch a major suit response then we have more room to explore. Splinters are more obvious when you have room to jump. Oh, I almost forgot to mention we use 2c with 55 majors as well. We jump to 3nt over a 2d ...
1N - 3m
I've played 3c puppet (well now Muppet) for 15-20 years and it works great. Biggest advantage is the opponents almost never take a call over that bid so no lead directing or saves found. We use 3s as MSS since we are playing 4-suit xfers but it never comes ...
