Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?
Yes I have. Also the matchpoint score when you find you don't have enough for the minor slam and stop at game. Unfortunately, that situation tends to occur more often unless you clearly have enough values for slam before you pass 3NT. It is a difficult needle to thread.
2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?
Assuming matchpoints, you couldn't care less about missing a 4-4 club fit. Plus nobody ever said 3NT ends the auction. It shows your values. Partner can and should go on if he has the values to look for a slam.
Support Double
We play similarly, but use 3M bid you did not define: 2M to play 2oM forcing, natural, implies original bid was only 4 cards 30m (qbid) forcing to 3NT or higher (looking for stopper for NT). Original bid may or may not have been 5 cards - show later. 3M - GI ...
Finding low HCP slams using 2/1 trump Asking Bids
I agree that knowing the number of top honors is sufficient and conserves bidding space metter. I would also like to be able to find out whether opener has more than 5 cards, since responder may do the TAB with only 3 card support. A 9 card fit is often ...
An alternative Alerting Policy
A 1H opening in 2/1 certainly does not deny a 7 or more card heart suit - at least as I was taught. It promises 5 or more hearts, and 7 is part of 'or more'.
An alternative Alerting Policy
For most 'standard-ish' methods, ALL rebids by openers are non-forcing except for jump shifts. It is new suits bid by responder that are forcing. Right?
ACBL Club Department
@Richard, It is certainly considered best practice, and with arguably good reasons, not to disclose WHY someone is terminated from a job (if for cause. It is not common practice, or sensible practice, to eliminate a customer facing person and not notify those customers that the person is gone and ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
On reflection, I think the general idea of discriminatory pricing (market segmentation, to use the economics 101 term)at NABCs would be so abhorrent to many players that any extra revenue it would theoretically generate would be wiped out by people who choose to boycott. I think the heart of ...
Defending a “psych”
I asked a ACBL National Director about this (not this hand, but when it happened to me at a NABC several years ago). He said this is considered an illegal psyche of a convention, and that it is illegal to have an agreement that 2NT can have less than invitational ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
This is a very practical idea. It would probably be fairly effective, but would cause a lot of grumbling. I think it is unclear whether it would bring in enough new income to matter though. The number of participants in the expensive category may be insufficient unless the surcharges for ...
