Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
While LTC might have value once you have located a fit, it is a terrible yardstick for deciding whether or not a hand is strong enough to open. It will lead to some gross mis-evaluations. I take my HCP points to get an idea where I am at, and then ...
Best play in 6NT?
Why doesn't leading the 9 work? If Jxxx is onside you can pick it up, taking the slight risk of a 5-1 spade split.
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
I think he is saying that if you click on East's call, that might wake East up to the fact that he made an error. For example, suppose East, a passed hand, bids 2 in response to his partner's third seat 1M opening and doesn't alert ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Bharat, None of us are arguing against a 15 or 30 minute delay. If BBO can implement the necessary software so it will be the same as real time for the kibitzers, that would be great. We all agree with that. What we are saying is barring kibitzers is not ...

How High for Equal Level Conversion Doubles?
Until you define exactly what you mean by "equal level conversion", I do not know how to answer your question. For example, suppose the auction goes: (4)-DBL-(P)-4;(P)-4. That is certainly an equal level conversion in that you converted to a new suit ...
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
Ed, The rules you are talking about are written for f2f competition. The parameters for online competition are entirely different. While one could debate what the rules should be for online competition regarding alerts, announcements, undos, claims, and so forth, the rules for f2f competition aren't going to necessarily ...
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
I thought that was what I said -- avoid giving him the UI that there is some kind of mixup. If the announcement is consistent with his hand then there is no UI -- you said what he was expecting to say.
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
Ed, The only reason in f2f play we use alerts rather than announcements is because it is feared that announcements will wake partner up and avoid a mixup. One of the advantages of online play is that partner doesn't see your explanation. Consequently the argument against announcing the meaning ...
To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
It isn't a problem. If declarer has king-doubleton, he will go up king. If he has K9x, he will play small.
