“3NT shows 15-17 and a reason not to open 1NT” - can that reason be singleton heart? If yes I rebid 3 because if partner bids 3 over that I prefer hearts. If 3NT promises doubleton in responder suit, then 3NT.

Not to play. Better minor, or invitation with spades.

I like adventures with very limited stakes. 200 is a great score, unless we have game - and I am really not sure we do. I would not dare to pass in IMPs, -160 is ok, but if they make an overtrick that's a disaster.

Pass is more tempting in MPs.

It should be 10-13- and 13+-16 really. We put 13s into either bin based on judgement.

Ellis - I never got what people see in party games. This one does not even look particularly hard.

Ellis - “why don't you try” - because I don't see the point of it.

Donald - “allowed to avoid” in my understanding is when organisers make sure these teams do not play each other if possible. I for example prefer to avoid particular opponents, so if possible I arrange so that my teammates play at that table.

This would carry no penalties. Lebanon is scheduled to play Israel and they forfeit the match and take the penalties.

Nigel - Arab teams you mean Lebanon, and they do not avoid the match, they forfeit it.

The problem with the approach of ‘most likely single suited, but could be t/o’ is what does responder bid without a stopper? Should responder bid 3 or 3 holding xxxx,xxxx,xxx,xx?

This is hilarious. Almost as funny as “the cards broke”, and definitely so much George.

“I think the keyword is ”knowingly".

Would you refuse to play against someone who is a convicted thief? Someone who is known to be a thief, and never got convicted because of technicality? Someone who played a major role in a financial crisis affecting hundreds of thousands?

PS: moral judgement is better left for your private discretion. You buy an entry - you agree to COC, otherwise do not buy it.

-50/100 is always a worse score than 110, why would you be a level higher than you have to?

Why should I go to 4 rather than 3 when partner does not have one?

2 allows for a level of bidding to find the best strain. Maybe I will pass 3, maybe we will play in a 4-3 heart fit etc… eating up bidding space unnecessarily does not seem a good thing to me.

On a bus, would you offer a seat to a child molester?

I find it strange that you would refuse to play someone convicted of cheating in a card game, but would play against someone who cheated in a different game, or against a child molester, a murderer, a thief, an animal abuser or a rapist (add any other behaviour you find objectionable).

When I sit down to play anywhere outside the local club, 99% of the time I have no idea who my opponents really are - and if I did, I am afraid I would probably have to stop playing tournaments - including if they were restricted to BW community only.

Tournaments are not a social club.

Diamonds is the worst suit to open 2 with, and great running suit is not enough to open 2.

I don't understand the light t/o option - your hand is not strong enough to bid 2 so you force yourself to 3 when partner did not have a negative X???
I have a normal bid with virtually any hand except solid diamonds. If I have a light 3 suiter I bid 2 or X, if I have a big 3 suiter I bid 2 or X, if I have just a big balanced hand without a stopper I X.

If I have solid diamonds and good hand, but need a stopper I do not have a bid.

I would overcall 1NT or 1. Don't think this is a X then bid hand.

I think a practical solution for ACBL is to have a central table where E-W leave the boards once done and NS take them. Of course that would also leave room for confusion but at least it will still be the player's responsibility, so ACBL might actually consider adopting this.
