4 was what I actually did (vs a polish club opener, similar to the system here)

That is very funny… I opened 1NT as well the bidding went:
1NT 2 (1s im MAJ) X 2 (p/C)
I passed, Partner bid 3. Now I decided to bid 3NT anyway. After a lead partner was furious (at least in his way)

Is there any investigation about these gestures during the bidding? This might be a good argument, that there IS a forbidden communication code if there is nothing of this at all…

Maybe the best thing to do is to bid 2 after 2 by S to show the values (it is not possible to have a 4c suit I guess)

A better result than the 3NT -4 over the whole room

dont see a reason for blackwooding here. And I see no way to find the neccessarities for a grand. small slam might in very rare cases but I will not judge like a ‘weichei’ :)

well the hand I wrote down for myself as a min was Axx AQxx x AKJxx. After all partner knows the state of the match as well and would try to do the obvious things…

Dont take the points literally here. After all it is just that you have two ways to show a long minor suit and that 2 is the stronger version of it.

Dear Sabine,
we are playing Bridge against each other for now more than 25 years and I admired your ethical but very competitive way in playing bridge all the time.

With this statement (and the statement by Roy btw) you proved my admiration.

There is a bonmot from Karl Valentin, a comedian in the Weimarer Republic: everything is said, but not by everyone. In German: es ist zwar schon alles gesagt, aber noch nicht von jedem…

Well…

Here´s the guy who put the bd on table in wrong direction. Put in the wrong score in BM (or confirmed it…). The same guy who didnt check his results in time… And the only thing he does is insulting his opponents? The first thing he should have done is apologizing to the pair which suffered from this…

The truth is, that the rules are unmistakably… After the period for scoring corrections, there is nothing to be done.

And yes:
1) Ihope that in the future the WBF will give all players there private score to check all scores.
2) I hope that in the future the WBF will check the leads of a hand and complain when there is an error.
3) I hope that in the future the WBF will use a software which checks the scores for plausability and give a warning to the scoring crew.

-Ace, 7 to the 8: if it holds to the 10; if it loses to the q, you better find the -suit for 5 tricks after drawing trumps etc.

Would Partner have bid differently with say xx, xx, AQJxxx Axx? Or even worse: xx Qx KQJxxx Axx? Maybe partner should have bid 4 over 3 immediately (only possible, if 2 oder 2 would have been a neutral asking thing to save space)
