Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
2011-12 ACBL SOF implementation delayed and dropped...but why?
Item 122-81 (P. 21 of Philadelphia [url=]minutes[/url] of BoD), "Motion failed: Aye: 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 23, 24, 25. Abstain: 14." Someone has done a great job of reorganizing the presentation of the meeting minutes ...
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?

A bid, double, or redouble that conveys information (not being information ...
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
Here's my understanding of the history of the ACBL's shape restrictions on one NT openings. The ACBL's General Convention Chart ("GCC") as adopted by the ACBL's Board of Directors ("BoD"; Item 081-33) effective July 28, 2008 specified, "A notrump opening or overcall is natural if not ...
How would you bid this hand differently?
MH, hard to know where "hereabouts" is from your BW [url=]profile[/url], but my 12-14 NT has included transfers for 25 years.
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
Thanks. I expect it to be read by about two other people.
