Bridge is getting harder to play
LOL. Bridge players do tend to be a bit more sarcastic than the average Joe. I loved this line: Giordano asked rhetorically. “Are we allowed to play Scrabble here?”
Help Newer Players Reach Slam
Doubling and putting in your own suit promises 18+ hcp. A jump to game may be seen as close out. Thus, in this context, 3 may be seen as stronger than 4. It is quite a bit of an easier problem with lebensohl - and p knowing what a ...
Help Newer Players Reach Slam
I agree with the initial double by E. To get to slam, I think E can bid 3, rather than 4; It shows 18+ hcp. Of course W will raise to 4. At this point, E can bid 4nt and discover that W has 1 keycard and ...
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
I was disappointed to see that the new version of BBO had problems with voice commentary early today (although folks were there, I kept receiving message: unable to connect to voice server.) Unfortunately, the voice commentary was discontinued on the older version. Of course there will be growing pains transitioning ...

Is there a significant number of accomplished bridge players who play no conventions over opps 1NT? If so, they constitute another group that are not attending our regionals.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AJT KJxxxx --- QJxx

Atb on a missed slam
They are not easy to find, even when opps are NOT preempting!
I DO NOT Know What To Say.
I had a car for 2 days in Vegas, and parked it (for free) in Planet Hollywood (just as the daily bulletin suggested). Yes, it was quite a walk from the parking lot to the playing area (@25 minutes -- for me) but parking was convenient and the there was no ...
Birthday Wish
Happy birthday Steve!
David Hankins's bidding problem: KT7542 T9 6 QJ75
Ironically, if I were playing 2/1, I would have voted for 3 -- putting max pressure on opps and ready to beg forgiveness from partner. :)
