Challenging the Advice to Rebid 2!D with Almost Any Hand with 5+ Diamonds after 1!D-2!C
John: If you want to play MAFiA (Majors Are FIrst Always style responses to a 1 opening, feel free. However, the longest suit first style with a GF hand is certainly a reasonable approach and the original poster made it quite clear that this is the style he is ...
Systemic lead from doubleton w/ two touching honors
When I occasionally teach intermediates I tell them to lead high from any doubleton but I mention that many books say to lead the lower of doubleton touching honors followed by the statement that I ain't good enough to read such a lead in real life. (All the above ...

Gene: It is interesting, I think, that the person Peg writes about is a paying member of (at least) two clubs. FWIW, I recently ended my ACBL membership. Why? Because of the insane "you have to be a member to play in any tournament" rule. If they are going so ...
