1NT p 2NT showing diamonds
Michael, As usual you cut straight to the heart of the question. What I would like to know, which is more important over the long run? And it might be different depending on imps versus matchpoints. Clearly showing longer clubs is more important if responder has weak minors. Showing superacceptance ...
K98x vs AQ7x
We can only pick up the 5-0 break by cashing the king. You won't pick up JTxx -x because you can't finesse on the second round. It is clear to lead low to the Ace.
Yesterday, I had 12 1/2 tables. The players would rather have a 3 board sit out instead of a 2 board movement. I tried the 12 table 8 round with a East/West rover and North/South sitout at the party table. Most confusing movement I have ever run ...
Sam Marks's bidding problem: 9543 J 82 QJT654

Is Great Game Products (Bridge Baron) having problems?
I called last week to order more copies and left a message. They never called me back. Guess I need to start suggesting a different program for my beginners. Too bad, I love the Pat Harrington bridge lessons.
Can one run two independent instances of ACBLScore on the same computer simultaneously?
You say one copy of score but isn't one game an acm file and one game an aca file.
Bidding Review
Interesting that you think of the relationship as one of employee/employer. I think of the players as my customers. If they don't like how I run my game they go to another club 5 miles away.
Bidding Review
I am shocked at the results of the poll as well. I would guess that 90+ % of the voters would not call the director and would simply give a review upon being asked. However, 50% would rule that no review would be given. Why? Because of the duplicate laws. When ...
