Student Scam Warning From ACBL
This is a variation of a scam that has existed for years. If somebody sends offers to send you a check for more than you're owed, and asks you to send the extra back, it is highly probable that the check is fraudulent. It can take a bank a ...
Slap in the Face
If this is the olympic spirit, I want nothing to do with it.
What should TD Rule? Misinformation or Misbid or Extremely Serious Error
I wish people would stop offering explanations for agreements they don't have. North could easily say, "We haven't discussed this." If they had, there wouldn't be an issue here. On the other hand, I don't have much sympathy for east-west if they knew or should have ...

Unfortunately, the robots play badly enough that normal bridge with them is pretty painful, at least to me. If we had better robots, this is clearly the right answer.
Why Abstain?
Yes, I want to see what more informed people vote on a subject, but don't feel my vote is useful or informed enough that I want to actually vote.
Where's the freedom of expression in 2019?
I don't mean to sound unduly harsh, but this would sound less whiny if it were attached to a specific proposal on what you think that the ACBL should do and in what context. Bridge is not a game of hidden agreements and understandings. Your opponents are entitled to ...
