about me

I am the ACBL National Recorder. I was on the NAC (appeals committee) from 1984 until its demise. I joined the ACBL Laws Commission in 2006. I was added to the ACBL Ethical Oversight in 2010. I am particularly proud (and mystified) about being appointed to the ACBL Goodwill committee. My hobbies include my dogs, singing, wine, and watching baseball and basketball. Former member District 17 Board and former 1st Alternate Director D17.

Club Discipline
You are 100% correct. However (and as you can see here) there are a lot of issues that go with running a club and the "personalities" involved so I am planning an article or two on Club Discipline. Just advice and "best practices".
What should the selectors do?
Other - the selection process should be clear and transparent BEFORE the Euros.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AK2 AKQJ965 --- T76
I would have bid 5D (Exclusion KCB) over 3D.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: A85 AJ54 Q62 AK2
Pass, but 6C after I double.

Thanks for all the comments thus far. Keep them coming!
Club Discipline
Hi Randy - thanks for participating in this. Your obligation when suspending or barring a player (and there is no prohibition against suspending nor against using that word) is to notify the player(s) affected and the ACBL Club Department. You should say the reason for the discipline and the nature ...
Mark Gordon RIP
That is SO sad. What a sweet guy!
Please, One More Time for this Theme
For this situation I think Law 73C is more appropriate than Law 16. It is that egregious.
Legal Agreement or not?
Not so Steve. In ACBL (I am quoting) - Disallowed: "Psyching of artificial or conventional opening bids and/or conventional responses thereto. Psyching conventional suit responses, which are less than 2NT, to natural openings. "
Legal Agreement or not?
Not alertable in ACBLland. But other Zones and NBOs have other alerting rules. I was surprised that I received a warning for not alerting my partner's weak jump overcall in Israel. Know the local rules.
