Guidelines for BBO Vugraph Commentators
I think voice commentary is amazing. I almost always stay at one table when there is voice. I fall into the "average player" category and I learn a lot from the commentary, especially when commentators discuss what players might be thinking about when they go into the tank, or explain ...
Statement from Balicki on PBU site
Great translation! This shows if nothing else that B. expected Z. to know his bid of 3 was a minimum minimum (beyond minimum--not showing even as much as six clubs to the king). I beg indulgence for some non-expert questions: what does 1NT show in the auction? If 1NT ...

I can see that it works on the one-level: 1NT (weak) X Pass (forces XX from opener ...
The Anti-Membership ACBL
I played in this event in the "B" flight. In all this long and interesting thread, what I like best is Aviv Shahaf's suggestion, above, to address the issue by offering a number of pre-approved sanctions for "special events" to all units. This would regularize the rules and awards ...
Kamil wins 2012 Lazard Sportsman of the Year Award
I can attest that Mike is not only courteous to his peers, but also to lesser players (like me, for example). A few months ago, I played a couple of boards against Mike in a local tournament. Although I misbid the first hand and misplayed the second, I came away ...
