”I don’t really care”? Disgraceful. Truly disgraceful.

You have it backwards. If your behavioral standard in life is that you only do what is required by you by law, then you are indeed a sad figure. By your reasoning I shouldnt denigrate people who don’t give up their bus seat when Linda, 92, gets on.

Are you saying it’s not allowed under the laws of bridge to draw attention to your own revoke?

@Richard Fleet: Frankly, I find your position outright offensive.

South gets 65 %, he is worth a strong try when North shows a maximum. 4 + 5 over 4.

Spot on. South has an absolute minimum - strength and distribution wise - as far as I understand the methods. Maybe, just maybe, he was worth a forcing pass due to his club shortage.

You can have whatever opinion you like about north's auction (I would have bid the same, rates to be 500-800 against 1370-1390, or 300-500 against 600-620), but south's pass is simply out of this world. Even if they make 6red, how are they ever going to be able to bid it? And we basically know partner is gonna sacrifice with his void.

The rule is a disgrace. That being said, opening the first hand 1NT gets 0 points in my book. And the second hand, what on earth is wrong with 1 - 1; 2? Last time I checked, it showed 5+ 11-(16).

@Roland Voigt: I think, in the interest of the game, that it should be assumed that a pass on 5 is indeed the result of some mannerism by the 5-bidder. As Benoit points out though, the double might save the day.

Come on! I find it offensive that you should have to pass 4 with this hand. Partner is showing a 5 sacfrifice, bidding 4 on the way. The real question is wether partner is allowed to pass 5. Without screens it's likely doubtful.

Fredin found the same K pitch in the very same spot. Ekenberg proceeded to make it anyway, probably because it took too long to make the pitch.

There are two answers to that question Michael. The truth and the one Hanan is gonna provide us in a couple of hours.

The famous “I'm just asking the question”-argument. Questions often carry insinuations. There's a brilliant South Park-episode where Cartman is “just asking questions”. You should watch it.

Hanan, if you are not able to understand that the point of this video is not that Boye is cheating, you have a serious problem with contextual interpretation.

If I had to choose between killing myself and bidding 2, it would be a close call.

I want to focus more on partner's signals. The first low , to me, denied a honor. When partner then discards a , it should be count. The 5 is only consistent with T85 or T542. If he plays the 2, I can safely play the J first to have him dislodge his highest remaining save the T. I then have to guess unless he follows with the 4.

Tom, I think you (and many others) are totally off evaluating this case. I make this statement: Even if there were no theory at all as to what information the board position conveys, the positioning by itself is clear and convincing evidence of cheating.
