about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live on Cape Cod and am on the boards of EMBA (Unit 108), District 25, and New England Youth Bridge (www.newenglandyouthbridge.org).

Country
United States of America

When will the WBF post details for Orlando?
I agree 100% that this information should have been published months (or years) ago. And then, once the tournament is underway, it should not change (as the WBF has the inconceivable habit of doing).
BW 2/1: Opener's Reverse
John, our intention is to gather the individual results of these polls and then use them to create a cohesive, consistent system. Which might mean going against a couple of the individual poll results. We know many of these issues are inter-related, and we're not going to blindly follow ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
We're very aware of this. Our plan is to use the results of the polls to create a system that we feel is playable. That well might mean we go against a few of the individual poll results in order to have a cohesive system. But it can't ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Just a reminder that we our goal is a simple, natural system that intermediates can play. We'll get to expert agreements eventually. Feel free to discuss more complicated agreements, but when answering the polls please keep this goal in mind.
