Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
@Michael and JoAnn, unfortunately the model you advocate has its drawbacks as well. Namely, folks playing in regional events (and that number surpasses the number playing in NABC+ events) are unlikely to pay $5 or $10 more per session to play. Why would anyone, who is budget conscious (i.e ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Antidotal information suggests that folks still reserve the cheaper rooms early and release them only before the penalty period kicks in. Thus, rooms may not be readily available for others to book. Perhaps the way to ease this problem is to either move the penalty period earlier....or require one ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Perhaps if this was spelled out beforehand. Then I could reasonably decide whether I wanted to spend xx additional dollars to attend a national as opposed to a regional event (which are available on a weekly basis). The way things are going it should not be long before platinum points ...
No Drury in 4th seat?
For me, the Rule of 15 applies in 4th seat. Thus, not necessarily a full opener. Accordingly, drury makes lots of sense (to me). What I don't follow is that anyone would argue because so and so says so, without specifying the why of the argument. I know that ...

Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964
In for a penny, in for a pound. Albeit, I would never open the hand 1NT...if i did, I would not hesitate to bid 3nt after subsequent developments.
What are your pet peeves?
My number 1 pet peeve -- although it only happens with one partner -- is when she calls for a card from dummy before I have even put the entire dummy down! How can you plan the play when you have not even seen the entire dummy? I have now taken to ...
What are your pet peeves?
@Mathew, in the same vein, putting the double cards jumbled in with the pass cards so that one comes up unexpectedly.
5-5 Minor Follow-Up Bids
Unfortunately, most players will notice if we bid 2 over 3.......and say it is insufficient.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AKx --- AQxxx KJxxx
Follow up: of course I bid 4NT....and p bid 5 which was down one (best possible results). At the other table our p's opened 2...which was doubled...and opp bid 3 and my hand bid 3NT making 4. What I am curious of: is ...
