What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
This sounds useful - how does it work? Not at all clear that it is possible from the bridgemate manual. Do you have additional software?
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
I agree in principle, but for typically fast players, there are a few hands per (tournament/year/decade?) where you want your five minutes to figure out the right squeeze and how to get the 10 trick communication right. The chess clock concept would allow fast players to "bank" their ...
Does an "Attitude Signal" signal "what you want/don't want" or "what you have/don't have" (or something else?)
I said it depends, because it depends on my partner. With very weak partners you simply tell them what to do with low encourages and high discourages (leading them by the nose), but with more advanced partners I would expect them to figure out more about the hand - like who ...
Does anyone know what happened with USBC-26-2?
That is consistent with my observation from watching the vugraph. I was watching Stephani/Louis vs Sonner/Hettle (wolff) table for board 28. With no additional explanation, the vugraph operator made a statement to the effect that "the cards you are seeing are not those that the players are playing ...
Move the Date of the Fall NABC!
Except that in most cases with other sports, the money comes from people who want to watch remotely, or advertise on billboards or player clothing, and not the amateurs who play (if there are any). Period.
Move the Date of the Fall NABC!
Thanksgiving Friday however is not a federal holiday at all, and depending on the company, you may or may not get it off.
Meaning of 2N in this auction
I guess there may be a difference about playing (full) systems on over a balancing NT (my preference), and playing them off. I have definitely seen (good) people play that a balancing NT doesn't promise a stopper (surely partner has points somewhere on this auction). I like a bad ...
Move the Date of the Fall NABC!
Richard - from a Brit living in the US, Thanksgiving is to the US what Christmas is to the UK, it is the major family holiday where turkey is served, and that should be your analogy - it isn't a random secular holiday here - it is what makes America America, and ...
Move the Date of the Fall NABC!
I think the "vacation challenged" part is important to the few of us who often show up twice to a national - usually to play the pair event the first weekend and the team event the second weekend. I have frequently made jokes about the attendance at the NABC on Thanksgiving ...
Comparable call?
I don't know what is standard not playing lebensohl anymore, but it seems that 3D is a complete subset of a stayman bid, if playing lebensohl, and should be a comparable call (the ambiguity of the diamond stopper being authorized information for the non-offending side only?). Normal contracts are ...
