How light are preempts these days? CLUB GAME PABC MATCHPOINT SCORING
Well my Ogust agreement (and I believe this is common) is that 2 of top 3 honors constitutes a "Good Suit". This one certainly meets that definition. I would respond to Ogust good suit-bad hand and I believe that to be a correct assessment.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
@Adam "Every TD I've talked to hates giving slow play penalties" is the crux of the problem. Yes it is subjective. So are many UI situations, and I doubt the TDs love dealing with those either, but somehow they view the UI problems as their job and the late ...
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Robb, I respectfully disagree. Making complicated rules and procedures and then failing to enforce them will never solve this or any other problem, but penalizing the offenders will. Directors are not being told that they must hand out penalties, and they, like everyone, want to be liked so they ignore ...
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
The solution is simple - enforce the rules. If a pair is playing slow for multiple rounds, they get a penalty. If they continue to play slow, they get another, larger penalty. The problem will soon disappear. I don't understand why directors could possibly have a problem with this. If ...
On computer versus hand shuffling
I know finesses are 50-50 because mine always fail and y opponents' always succeed :)
Illegal 1NT
The ruling seems ridiculous because it does not address (potential) damage to the opponents who had to deal with the 1NT bid. If, in fact, there was no damage then I guess it is fine. That said, IMO the rule itself is flawed beyond belief. I can't see how ...
3S over 3H
Why is this not a poll? But I would say this is just a case of where doing the right thing doesn't work out. You and partner have perfectly fitting hands that make up for your lack of Aces and distribution. And trumps are breaking for you. You could ...
Should ACBL have North American Bridge Championship events and titles for all levels of players at NABCs?
To those who scoff at this idea (You know who you are!): 1. Shame on you. Kevin is making a constructive suggestion to try to make things better. You who sit and make fun of it are not helping anyone. 2. It is certainly the case that a large number ...
Should ACBL have North American Bridge Championship events and titles for all levels of players at NABCs?
I think this concept is excellent, although I would say you sliced things too finely in terms of MP levels, at least at first. You need to have a substantial number of entrants in each event - at least 26 pairs in pair events, and at least 16 teams in team ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
Any your point is ...??? Just because most don't ask for them (and three did) doesn't mean it isn't necessary to provide them. It is, after all, a rule. How many actually take advantage of the fact that the cards are available is irrelevant.
