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 ...
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
In an attempt to not be too PC, I find the connotation of your post incredibly insensitive at least, and highly insulting at worse.
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.

Chinese Food & The Big Picture
@David....small potatoes matter! I agree that small potatoes do not change/challenge the big picture...but like a stone thrown a river, the resultant wave structure tends to have an impact. I would suggest that what we (ACBL members wanting greater things from our organization) do not want to ...
My Perceptions after 10 days in Atlanta
@Randy, "everyday" players are coming; but I, too, noticed a real decline (from Toronto) in the mini events. I had not known about mini events or participated in them before Toronto (perhaps marketing could be improved for these types of events since they include the bulk of the ACBL membership ...
