Robert Schachter's bidding problem: KQ86 63 QT42 754
We play Flannery but will still bid 1 with 4. That gets us to 1N quite often when it is right.
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: QT2 K AQT2 AK752
What if the 1 spade bid promises 5+?
Has bidding to the 8+ level ever been considered in bridge?
Richard is right: +150 honors less 100 for down 1 doubled = +50. Any plus score at rubber bridge wins the board.
Has bidding to the 8+ level ever been considered in bridge?
Back in the day, on the first board in a rubber bridge game a guy with 13 spades open 7. His LHO with 13 hearts bid 8. Opener sighed and bid 8. Anyone know why it was right?
USBC round robin format
Right. If you dump a match that means the original #1 seed does not qualify for the next round is that for or against the spirit of the overall competition?
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AQJ5 A6 QT752 A4
I do not like any of the options you listed. Club support is not adequate. Double should show 'convertible' values as I cannot have a heart stack based on the bidding. Now when partner shows a side suit - Hoo Hah!
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: QT4 A Q854 AQ962
I would double at matchpoints as 'takeout' to give pard a chance to pass for penalties.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: K52 AJ432 AT92 3
I like DONT. If they are red, DONT bid. If pard fits your suit you will probably set them at 100 per trick. If there is no fit you do not want to be in the bidding.
Bye 15: John Banner, Werner Klemperer, Leon Askin, Howard Caine. Bye 16: Armin Shimerman, Max Grodenchik; Aron Eisenberg, Wallace Shawn.
ACBL Search Committee Up and Rolling
My recollection of the move to Horn Lake was that Jay Baum negotiated a sweetheart deal for that property getting it for a token payment ($1?) in exchange for retrofitting it to ACBL's needs and operating a viable business in that industrial area. I am not 100% sure of ...
