My partner overcalled 6 (and made it) once over their 1-level opening, he saw no future on investigating anything, he picked hearts at random as he had solid 6-6 majors

The other problem was posted by Gabriel's partner, who is also named Gabriel ;)

Easy 6, I expect to catch at least 5-card support in front

Partner had

AK
xx
AKxx
QJ10xx

if you led a club +300, a low spade +100, red card is -550 while a high spade will see partner desperatelly switching to diamonds for -550 as well.

I abstained because I remember the other hand, IMO it is close betweeen pass and 3

Double of 2 showed hearts, partner's 2 showed support

I don't find 2 automatic, I find it wrong, 3 setting up trumps seems way better, at least the way I play it, 4 is also a better bid IMO

South made a wrong 2 bid, 2 bid, 6 and 7 bids, (5 is debatable)

North only made a slight 2 overbid, so I would say over 90% South.

Another hand where it is superior to play UDCA

I though 3 or 4 to be the best options, I would had tried 4M if I had hearts or if I was not vulnerable

Since East passed over 1, and seems to have heart support, I think he is either too weak to double, or too short in spades to double 1.

On either case double rates to be a good move for us, since we rate to have the upper hand or a spade fit.

I am pretty sure in tempo insufficent bids still convey UI

The most complicated positions are required by law: When you receive UI and need to weigh all logical alternatives

BTW I did a little research on RFID tech, and if you were to make a prototype the RFID detectors cost 40$ each (you need at least 4), and each RFID deck cost a little more than 100$ (you would probably need to combine all with bridgeplusmore tech so you reutilize the deck over and over)


I wonder if Casinos are already able to read cards with their cameras

Poker is able to detect which cards each player has using RFID technology, if we were able to make tables who can read when a card is being played and record it we could get an accurate reproduction of how the timing of a game is being held.

It would also help automatically broadcast, and keep record of play.


Another thing we should already be working on which would actually be easier than RFID detectors for cards is to bid with tablets instead of bidding boxes, it keeps record of timing, not only for penalties but also for hessitation length disputes. It also provides relevant information to full disclosure, keeps record for broadcasting/journalists, reduces the UI of how you deploy the bid into the table, etc, etc, etc.

Having a tablet at the table also lets you keep track of your scores while dummy reducing the scoring mistakes we were so happy about 4 years ago in Wroclaw.

Is 2-7NT considered accurate?

Now seriously, I would locate KQJxxx after a strong club opening if they do not overcall

I can't believe a world class East doesn't know that south doesn't have diamonds when he removes a raise to another suit. Reviewers have no clue about the game or are biased towards granting something to E/W they don't deserve.

Score should be +750

When players discard cards there are too many voids everywhere

Seems like I didn't express my point clearly enough :(. I used to play some things wrongly (some might date from 20 years ago), and the worse thing is that I was so sure I was doing it right that I never cared to check it.
