NEWS FROM THE WASHINGTON D.C. NABC: In a recommendation from ACBL's Competions and Conventions Committee, the Board of Directors has ruled that beginning August 1 the definition of a one notrump opener/overcall includes hands containing a singleton ace, king or queen as long they do not also contain a doubleton. Hand patterns now accepted include 5-4-3-1, 6-3-3-1, and 4-4-4-1. The complete story can be found in the Bridge Bulletin from Saturday, June 30.
