I'm fairly sure the CoC call for the team closest to a lutefisk processor wins the tie breaker. It will come as no surprise that there are several such within a few miles of the U. of Minn. main campus. If there is still a tie after this, the ...
Helgemo and Helness situation
Christopher & Peg: I suggest that you are arguing past each other. Christopher is making a legal argument while Peg is making a moral argument. To simplify, assume the following is true. Person A due to ignorance or bad advice fails to pay taxes due. Person B is found guilty of ...
how many spades?
Whatever I bid at my first turn will be the last bid I make.
How forcing is 1!C - (2!H) - 3!H?

Richard Traxler's bidding problem: T98 J8 JT9874 42
If I am running, 3NT seems best. Once this gets doubled (or partner bids 4), I bid 4 which must show tolerance for Hearts .. otherwise, I'd bid 4 directly.
Changes for All ACBL Special Games
Terry: I thought you showed up at St. Pete whenever I was playing just so you'd know that you'd get at least one 80% round.
