BoG Election 2018
I'd like to see more concern for recruitment and retention of juniors (or really, the broader category of any bridge players <50) . I took a role on the board out of thought from several people that it would be a good idea to have younger faces involved in the ...
You are now the King/Queen of the ACBL, what next?
I came up with this list in like 10 minutes by the way. If I can come up with it, surely the ACBL can get it's act together and generate a similar list too. We need more youth/junior initiatives going people!
You are now the King/Queen of the ACBL, what next?
Immediately get several committee projects going to modernize bridge's perception in the general public, and focus on recruiting young people. -Let's get proper feedback from current juniors (or anyone <60 really) -get into middle schools and high schools, get a bunch of scholastic bridge clubs going -Modernize the ...
You are now the King/Queen of the ACBL, what next?
I'd don't think he was joking-- Multi is a great convention from a systematicviewpoint, and the restrictions on it in US events, while are in place by the logic of protecting club players and etc from the difficulties in defending against it, are overly harsh.
Should this pass be forcing??
The 3rd seat, white on red opener, is supposed to have his first bid ;) ?
percentage play in trump for 1 loser
Let's see... Cashing AK picks up any 3-2 for one loser, so about 68% percent. The question seems to be, are their any variants with the double finesse in trumps that picks up more than that? Riding 10, you lose to Stiff Q or J offside. No difference if ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A9862 AJ654 986 ---
yeah, typo 2 natural NF (4+ clubs, 4 of the major shown over 1).
What do you think of "Un-Michaels"?
My initial thought is it might have some positive variance at matchpoints? The problem is when you encounter a situation where everyone else in the room as advancer, knows their partner's major and you don't. I don't think it really makes responder's life any harder, given ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A9862 AJ654 986 ---
2 F1R tends to imply a 5th heart (opener would reasonably also show 4 hearts at this point in response if they had so). 2 is natural NF. 2 would be natural NF (probably 4+ clubs, 4 hearts).
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A9862 AJ654 986 ---
More like, "trying to exhaustive of all possible choices in the auction and objections to the first bid in the poll". I've left options out, and been wrong before.
