ACBL Ranking
Silver Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
I think splitting honors always refers to second hand play. Third hand does not split honors. Third hand does play the top of a sequence if it cannot beat one of the first two cards already played, and bottom of a sequence if playing third hand high. Fourth seat does ...
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
I have been told to play the lower of two when splitting, but to play the highest when splitting from 3. Thus play the Ten when splitting the JT, but play the Jack when splitting JT9.
GNT Format: Going Forward
Just which players that rarely play in ACBL clubs or tournaments do you think will be trying to qualify for the GNTs?

GNT Format: Going Forward
The idea of handicapping entries in a flighted event eludes me. If handicapping for the master point awards is desired, well OK, but using handicaps to determine which teams qualify for the nationals seems so wrong that I just can't think of words to express my thoughts on the ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AK6 A63 AQ97532 ---

Rohit, If you're asking how we bid with 18-19 balanced, we open 1C, planning a 2NT rebid. 1D is ALWAYS an unbalanced hand.
How and when do you try for slam - or don't you?
So RHO passed over partner's 2C, but then bid 3C on the next round?
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AK6 A63 AQ97532 ---
If 1D is unbalanced, then a natural jump to 2NT is not needed either. We play that 1D - 1M - 3D also shows 3 card support for pard's major, 1D - 1M - 2NT is the same hand but with fewer than 3 in pard's major. We use 1D - 1M - 1NT ...
