SHOULD THIS A PREEMPTIVE JUMP WHEN OPP HAS OPENED 10-15, 2+D, and HIS PARD PASSED 1S?
You are vul vs non vul. surely pard expects 4S will make opp a minimum overcall.

for the record, partners hand was:
Axx
KQxx
A108xx
Q

This hand is also posted, and a large majority (including David) passed.
Anyway, you get a plus in 2S.

My wife and I had the pleasure of touring Scotland a few days ago and we took time to play in all the little bridge clubs we could find. Every single grandmother in these clubs played multi. We had a simple D worked out and could have cared less. I say, come on ACBL, we love you and we need you, but please accept some outside wisdom

Serge, thanks for the comment. Gazilli is not well known in Canada, but seems like a useful tool

So acbl has a rule. You have an infraction of a well known and understood rule and you complain!. No sympathy.
Why would one want to declare NT with a singleton S or whatever? I would strive to get partner on play in NT.
Whole discussion is —.

I cannot see why anyone would hang onto a championship they did not win.

I like Rusinow vs both.
Standard leads with shortness (doubleton vs suit, 2 or 3 vs NT)
An example of where shortness agreement vs NT helps is this holding: (and similar)

Dummy
Kxx
Leader 3rd hand
QJx Axx

On this layout, 3rd hand knows there is no future in the suit led (except 6NT).

much ado
How could one pass with this golden hand?
2 working Q's and a 5 card suit.
Also how could not anyone hesitate with the other hand? Ridiculous. He has said it all.
Give partner a nreak when you have a good hand.

E told pard he did not have a singleton D.
West let on that he had a problem at trick 2.
An Oscar possibly?

Mr Margiotta
What about the fact that the “foot tappers” got the Italian team to the final, and the Italian team did not concede at that point?
Ugly

videotaping was a giant step forward. None of the discovery with real evidence could have been possible without it.
And no one could ever expect bridge administrators to pursue their intuition and explore the videos with the same expertise that Brogeland and Woolsey (I know there are others) possess.
Administrators and directors do not have the same degree of consciousness about table activities as the “real” experts do.
And the bridge administrators have to take into account legal repercussions to their actions and statements.
I also agree that knowing what we now know, the time is right to get tough with cheaters.
Ban them for life unless they renounce all of their victories and explain all of their methods publicly.
