Bridge Base Convention Card
I had the same issue a while back but made it my "favorite" and it saved.
Richard Smith's bidding problem: KQTxx Txxx ATxx ---
Fwiw that was what I did at the table. I passed the first time around and waited to see what would happen. My partner opened 1H in third seat and we played in 4H making 4. I was just curious what most would do in this situation.
The Language of Bridge is Book of the Year
Congratulations, Kit!
1S 2S 2NT
We have three help suit tries 1S-2S-3x asks for help in the bid suit. 1S-2S-2NT asks for a feature 1S-2S-3S asks how good are your spades

Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
I think Nightmare, or some variation is far superior to Precision. It allows you to get your suit in right away instead of opening all strong hands 1C. It also allows you to play at a lower level with a bust hand than Precision allows.
Recent Disciplinary Actions
Is it possible these were the sponsors of those teams and therefore the ACBL did not want to punish them? Not that they had anything to do with the incorrect score being handed in anyway.
Fisher comments...
I love Southpark.
Gazzilli: An Introduction
Our system differs in that all of our one level openings can be strong therefore making full use of the Gazzilli. We don't limit all strong hands to 1C.
