Mike Cassel's bidding problem: 8432 T2 T864 K63
Pass. I'll either be glad it's matchpoints or overjoyed it's matchpoints.
Forcing or not?
We play as Steve Moese describes, "1m-1M, 2m-2/3om as the only force." In Leonard's auction, partner would be showing an invitational (NF) 6-4 in the majors.
Flannery Disclosure
Good question. We asked about that and were told 'no' since it is natural. It was explained that it fits in the same category as responders bid over partner's NT opener if it is the start of a puppet sequence, or 2 regardless of what it means ...
Web Movement?
The Twin City Bridge Center (Minneapolis) uses WEB movements for just about all of its games (10-12 and 14+ tables). We love them and everyone seems to be quite used to them now. There were growing pains, but they did not last long.
Flannery Disclosure
We play 2 Flannery and like it. Over our 1 opener 1 shows 4 or more. It means we can play 1N by opener which has proven to be a %age winner for us over time.
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: K874 Q3 J8 K9875
If partner cannot overcall, neither can I with this drek.
BOD Journal Motions for Atlanta
After several years of asking directors to use it and being ignored it seemed appropriate to have something official on the books. It is NOT micro-managing.
whom to blame!
You open crap you get a crap result. Let South open 1N and you get to 3N which at least has a chance to make.
BOD Journal Motions for Atlanta
As the originator of this motion, I intended it to be in force for all 2 or more session pair events including NABC+. I was told that it was not practical for the NABC+ events and was asked to water it down in order for it to have a chance ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qxxx AJTxx ATx x
What was the ruling? 3 down 1? PP to E/W? 4 X -2? (my choice).
