about me

Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

Bidding minor suit hands after partner opens 2NT
I have a typo in the above. What I meant to say was: 4C or 4D is Minorwood.
Bidding minor suit hands after partner opens 2NT
If you're up for another set of methods: After 2NT (either opening or after 2C-2D-2NT): 3S is a relay to 3NT. All strong hands go through this relay. Then: Responder can pass, to play 3NT. 4C or 4C is Minorwood. 4H/S shows shortness with length in both minors ...
Margaret Devere's bidding problem: 9 Kxxx QJTxx AKJ
If anybody feels like suggesting an auction to get to either 6 or 6, I'd appreciate it. Again, N holds ♠A9 ♥Axxx ♦AKxx ♣Qxx. We play Minorwood and have the agreement that in a strong auction, if you remove 3NT to 4 of a minor, that's ...

Do we need the BOG?
I am not aware of getting good information from the Board of Governors. You certainly might have information or experience that I don't. In response to several comments here and there -- in the 15+ years I've played duplicate bridge, and the 5 years I was on the unit ...
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
That's a really interesting idea -- they can play bridge (assuming the other conditions are met) but cannot be hired or win any prize money.

Do I get the award for Best Title of the Year ?
Do we need the BOG?
Diving more deeply into the documentation, here's what the ACBL Bylaws say about the BOG: ARTICLE IX BOARD OF GOVERNORS 9.1 Purposes. The purposes of the Board of Governors are: 9.1.1 To serve as a liaison between the membership and the Board of Directors. 9.1 ...
