Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Mike, I believe you are absolutely right. If you are losing money because you cannot sell your product the normal business would try to minimize loses by selling it with discount, so your proposal to give discount on entry fee for people who booking in the host hotel for that ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Sure, increasing the entry fee and giving discount to people who booked in the host hotel will work. It will likely cause some decrease in attendance, because some people will find they cannot afford to participate (or more fair to say the cost of participation for them became higher than ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support

Opinion on a director's ruling.
Well, Silodor Pairs is the part of NABC, so ACBL alert chart applied. Lets read it: "If played as natural, a direct cue-bid of a natural opening bid" is alertable" So, if 1 was a natural bid, missing alert on the ...
Excerpts from ACBL/BBO Individual
Another ruling case
Funny. As far as I understand situation is: 1. NS pair has different agreements about they 2 bid over 2 opponents intervention after their 1NT opening: It is for takeout if 2 promises or to play if 2 promises unspecified major. 2. EW pair has ...
