Attention: Thornhill Bridge Players

Great News (TheCommonGame):

Now Most of Thornhill Bridge Club Sessions have Pre-Dealt Hands. ♠   ♣

WITH NO ADDITIONAL COST To PLAYERS!

""Starting JUNE 2017, TUESDAY AFTERNOON GAMES will be Pre-Dealt Hands as well""

In addition, Thornhill Bridge Club is now part of a large group of bridge clubs in North America offering the same bridge hands at the same time to all players at these clubs.  This means:

 - Our players' results will be compared with results from over 100 clubs in North America.

- Players who have their email addresses registered with ACBL will receive results by e-mail from TheCommonGame.

- Some hand analyses by various pros is provided by TheCommonGame.

- Most important; players will have access to the bridge hands just played after the game (in addition to a limited print out of the hands); also see what others did in each board.

Respect for Others

Our club have many players from all around and they are players with various type of medical conditions that may not be apparent to other players, such as problems with scents and problems with high pitch sounds.  

We would like all the players have an enjoyable time at our games, so please respect other players and avoid things such as card snapping and wearing strong perfume.

We appreciate your support.  Thank you

ACBL Regulation change: Opening 1NT with a singleton

Opening 1NT with a singleton: It’s officially legal

The ACBL Board of Directors removed a legal gray area surrounding semi-balanced notrump openers when it approved a change to the definition of a notrump opening in the General Convention Chart. The change allows players to open 1NT with hands that include a singleton ace, king or queen, as long as they do not also contain a doubleton.

Here is the new definition, effective Aug. 1:

“A notrump opening or overcall is natural if, by agreement, it contains no void, at most one singleton which must be the A, K or Q and no more than two doubletons. If the hand contains a singleton, it may have no doubleton.”

This includes hand patterns such as 5-4-3-1, 6-3-3-1 and 4-4-4-1, in addition to those that were previously allowed, such as 4-3-3-3, 5-3-3-2 and 5-4-2-2.

The new definition prohibits opening notrump with more shapely hands, such as 5-5-2-1, 6-4-2-1 or 7-2-2-2. “All of this has to do with your agreements,” Weinstein noted. “That doesn’t prohibit an out-and-out psych, but you can’t keep doing that or it becomes an agreement, and an illegal one at that.”

The change does not impact the one allowable exception of a partnership agreement where 1NT is treated as a 100% forcing opening bid (and not considered “natural” with any distribution). The use of such an unbalanced, non-natural 1NT opening must be alerted.
