ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Probability, probability...
I would play for a dummy reversal trying to ruff good the diamonds. First diamond ruff with 9 of spades, second diamond ruff with j of spades, hope opp spades are 3-1 or 2-2. If opp diamonds are badly distributed or opp spades are 4-0, I'll think about it.
Unusual UI Situation
Interestingly, nobody thinks that RHO had a wire somehow ?! The chance of a weakish player firing up Blackwood after the BIT against hearing "slam on" from someone is rather low. I had the same experience just two weeks ago. A weak 2 opener Blackwooded himself into a less than 5 ...
Director Behavior for I/N Events at Nationals
Well, problems like those are not reserved for ACBL only. It's bad luck to be stuck after such a pair, but bad luck happens. Your point about Director's non-dealing with your frustration is right on target. Compare that with what happened to me. At the World Championships in ...

Inhuman Forum: Bots Respond to Prayers

Inhuman Forum: Bots Respond to Prayers
Just a programming brain-fart, probably more blatant than many more of the kind. The bots are making a lot of money for the company, and it amazes me that the relevant people are doing such a poor job on improving the product.
Are these Psyches?
No, no and yes. And every such thing needs to be recorded. When the records pile up, they'll pay for their deeds.
Some words from Monaco
That was low and uncalled for, Serge, If you have something to say, say it, or forever be silent... :)
