about me

EBU rank: Premier Life Master.

I play my own "Grumpy Club" system in partnership with my wife.

Short (forcing) 1C (11+hcp, no better bid) with forcing 1D response (neg or natural)

5 card majors, weak NT.

1D in 1st/2nd seat is 9-11 balanced or natural, natural in 3rd/4th.

Multi 2C, 2D and 2NT opening bids, Ekren-style 2H (3-11 hcp), normal weak 2S.

See website for EBU convention card.

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Dominic Cooke's bidding problem: 9 T743 J52 98653

Your UI ruling?
That would slow them down even more (well some of them...), I was thinking of something more strategically placed and electrical.
Your rho has 6+ cards in their minor, your partner has at least 2. How often are you going to have the right cards for a penalty double? Takeout wins hands down on the grounds of frequency.

I have obtained 5 copies from Brian Senior for those people who contacted me.
How does your local club manage Zero Tolerance?
We have a couple of Senior TDs who occasionally will overturn a ruling.
Your UI ruling?
I said punished and I meant it, slow play is killing the game.
Your UI ruling?
I just think that anyone who takes 30 seconds over a bid and then raises partner's suit deserves to be punished.
Your UI ruling?
+210 N/S -500 E/W Not convinced that 4S is justified, 5D certainly isn't!
How does your local club manage Zero Tolerance?
I would strongly recommend that you have a disciplinary committee (DC) which is separate from the main committee (MC) and contains at least one qualified TD. The DC should meet occasionally to review all ZT cases and as required for an appeal. The DC should make recommendations to the MC ...
Hold on a minute
EBU directors get taught the same, If I TD a club game all I get is a free game worth 3 pounds sterling. Monthly rent on a 2BR apartment 500-900.
