The disappearing evening club game
This is one of my personal soapboxes, hope you can keep the night games at least as a public good type thing. Juniors + working folks often can't play any other time.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: xx KQT9xx x ATxx
Follow-up: what is your plan if the opponents compete to 4? Does this affect your bid now?
Redoubling Isn't Rude
Come to think of it you would have been more than a little sad if the guy bids 5 over XX, no? :P
Redoubling Isn't Rude
Agree I think the comment about XX was clearly off base but these kinds of misconceptions are normal at the club. For me this is in the category of move on and laugh about it at the bar after the game.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: T865 AQT83 AJ7 3
Good question, no. I'll update the description.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: K KQ872 QT98 AQ4
PMing you who partner is. That sounds like a reasonable minimum to me.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: KJT97432 A8 4 J9
Now there’s a put down you don’t hear too often , I’ll have to break it out next time partner makes a wet bid
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
Sure thing Jonathan, sounds like you are handling this well. Let us as a community know if we can do something (e-mail barrage etc.). Good luck.
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
Also stephane threkeld at ACBL ed foundation would be a good person to contact, she would probably be willing to make a phone call for you to explain the difference
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
Also draw on the faculty you said are involved, they may know best how to navigate this process. Good luck
