What do the following abbreviations mean?
1.) WTP = "what's the problem?" usually used to suggest that there is no problem.
2.) PTP = "plan the play"
3.) f2f = "face to face"
4.) OP = Original post (or original poster)
5.) r/w = red vs. white (we are red, they are white)

Thank you.

1) "what's the problem?"
2) hm. dunno.
3) face to face.
4) Original Post or Original Poster
5) probably "red over white", referring to vulnerability.*

* I really hate the North American approach to these (and I'm American). I much prefer the English "traffic light" model: Red: vulnerable vs. not vulnerable, Amber (or Yellow): vulnerable vs. vulnerable, White: not vulnerable vs. not vulnerable, Green: not vulnerable vs. vulnerable.

What do the following abbreviations mean?
1.) WTP--What's the Problem? Used when a poster believes the answer is obvious
2.) PTP--Don't know. (maybe "pick the place" for a fight?) :rolleyes:
3.) f2f--face to face, as opposed to on-line
4.) OP--Either original post or original poster, depending on context.
5.) r/w--red (us) vs. white (them)...unfavorable vulnerability.

Thank you.

Is vulnerability marked in color on your duplicate boards? Our terminology matches these markings.

What do these abbreviations mean?

1.) ODR
2.) POS
3.) SF
4.) DN

I managed to figure out NS stands for Non-Serious. (N/S would be North/South).

Thank you.

1. ODR = offensive to defensive ratio
2. POS = pos = positive
3. SF = semi-forcing, but I suspect you mean SP = semi-positive
4. DN = double negative

p2p is peer-to-peer, a semi-illegal file sharing/streaming technique. PTP i don't know. urban dictionary has some definitions but I cannot reproduce them here, suffice it to say, they are not bridge or indeed computer related.
... and I can prove it with my usual, flawless logic.

BTW, I vote for eliminating "OTOH" from usage on these fora. Might be referring to a different deal :rolleyes:

Good One-Suited Hand. In other words the kind of hand that you would double and bid rather than overcall, or would make a jump overcall with over a preempt. Some of the theory around doubles is based around whether they can contain this hand type or not.
