Are your poker bluffs typically quick? If so, hope your pockets are deep. As your posting implies, it seems you wish to deploy tempo as a tool. That is simply wrong and perforce - illegal.

In revisionist history they all made. He liked to jump to 6♦ and gloat should he be successful. And like the NYTimes sydrome, the successful ones out-shone the failures and a good story would follow.

You are two steps down a slippery slope when the focus is on the hesitation vs. the auction. It shows weakness. Maybe he wonders how many more times he has to repeat the same message.

Gibson was intimidating and in a league of his own. From another great…

Just take the ball and throw it where you want to. Throw strikes. Home plate don't move.

That's what good players do to cream me, play down the middle and let me GIDP. Pity my jog to first is closer to the gimpy, injured Kirk Gibson than Rickey.

Fair enough.
Not all pros are experts nor are all experts pros.

This pro validates the former.

West's bidding offers little evidence of his alleged expert status.

As for his justification for interupting when the director is talking to East - unbecoming and unprofessional.

Bergen changed the game. He was Barry Crane for everyone. He recognized the power of fits versus the straightjacket of points in hand evaluation.

The ACBL (maybe others too) went running to the rule books to enforce minimal standards (length and HCPs) on his um…..imaginative - weak twos.

Maybe someone can enlighten us as to why he does not (apparently) qualify?

He should be a first ballot slam dunk. If not, the admission rules (or committee) need to be revised.

Like Groucho - he wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have him as a member.

Like Santa, his legacy lives on, immortalized in bridge lore with his very own gambit.

One advantage of bad bidding is that you get practice at playing atrocious contracts.

In today's realm, doubling might glean some input (e.g. Lebensohl) from the auction. Back then? 4NT? I ask East if he wants to emigrate.

Does USA Today publish stories/winners of Spingold, GN or Bermuda Bowls or efforts of many from Debbie Rosenberg to Bill Gates to improve our game? Or just the dirty laundry….

Playing with a young scientist, I thought for sure he would recognize my leaping 3D (overcall) as asking for a stopper.
He said “alert”.
I beamed.
“Super Michaels” he announced.
I cringed.
I wondered if it was more powerful than a locomotive….

Later the opponents were awarded an adjusted score as we went down seven in their cold major suit game….

Leaps tall buildings too….

You don't need to be the Amazing Kreskin to see this mine-field of chaos looming. Where is the leadership? Are we now going to bury those who can't bring themselves to play cheaters? We need some law, order and good governance but instead - fatigued by decades of indifference and incompetence - face this sordid deja vu all over again. Sad.

I nominate “Tim's Dutch Twist”.

A tribute to both its father and prodigy.

Sounds like a Tim Horton's donut…warm, soft, delicious.
