Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
I see this as a tactical issue, not a moral one.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Jeff Meckstroth, Michael Rosenberg and others: I think the most satisfying thing to do about re-admitted cheaters is to beat them at the table. That is what your fans would like to see.
Claim ruling poll
Here is another one: AQ93 opposite K8542 (with two-plus side entries to each hand). I know for a fact that the vast majority of players will play A or Q first, confusing this with AQ93 opposite K10542. They will no longer be able to pick up J1076 in front of ...
Claim ruling poll
I totally agree that declarer should play out this combination (unblock of 10 of diamonds), but what if he/she does not? Based on my experience using this combination in quizzes and exercises, only very top players would routinely get this right. Even many "Flight A" players would carelessly block ...

There was a locally famous -5200 in 6NTxx in the GNT in Southfield MI about 25 years ago. A certain "peanut" now residing in Arizona might be able to provide more details.
First unpleasant experience of changed 2017 Laws
What if West, while thinking things over, states to no one in particular or to a kibitzer, "I can't believe my partner only has two key cards and no queen of trump, given how strongly he bid," and that prompts East to reexamine his hand and ask to change ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
The numbers on the two Atlanta NABCs qre particularly interesting because the earlier start times in 2013 were supposed to encourage area suburbanites to attend. I don't know if they did that, but the total attendance was down significantly. Can anyone provide a list of the last 20-40 NABCs ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
How about a "quick" 48- or 52 board playthru (with one or two short breaks) starting at 11 a.m. and finishing by 6 p.m. That would allow for ample sleep in a.m. plus leisurely dinner and evening activities.
