A similar announcement to this one will appear several times in the Daily Bulletin. There will be notices in playing areas and at some points of (entry) sale.

I think this is worth 2S even over a balancing double.

I would be happy to have any/all of them. But for best results I think the “Bobby Fisher” is the lowest risk. He/she has proven that he/she can excel at the kind of problem solving required of gamers and can do so in live competition.

Contract should be changed to THREE hearts - the “re-transfer” South surely would have made without the UI.

I pulled to 3C but I certainly think pass is a logical alternative. I don't think it's that close but close enough that I did consider it. So if a break in tempo is determined (however long as to be a break) I would require a pass.

Hi Christian - congratulations for discovering Bridge - a wonderful way to pass time and keep your mind sharp! How many players do you have? If you have at least 8, have you considered duplicate? I am sure people here (me included) would help you with supplies.

Partner has made a takeout double. Why would I bid a 3 card suit in preference to a decent 5 card suit. If I had only 4 clubs I might well choose 3 Hearts on QJX. But I can't see it here.

I love to bud nt but this is too much. I open 1d and rebid 2d over 1s

Almost all my doubles are takeout and I love “advance balancing” but not when they basically announce a misfit.

Yes, of course it is a UI problem. I thought some would see some merit in 4S but I was definitely mistaken!

Thanks for your unanimity. Except for the 6D bidder. Thanks for your humor.

There is a story about the late TD John Hamilton. Hamilton was an army colonel before becoming a full time TD and he sometimes ran tournaments as if he was still in the military. One of his pet peeves (trust me I know this from experience) was phony names on entries. This was before computers and the name you wrote was the name that was typed on the recap regardless of player #.

So he was directing a Swiss Team (an event he had part in inventing but that is another story) and had an odd number of teams. Rather than have a round robin he asked the tournament chair to find him a fill in team.

He was furious when he saw the entry for this team named four people with the last name of “Fill”. He went stomping out to the playing area to find the miscreants so he could give them a piece of his mind. He came to the table and said “Is this the Fill team” ready to spring.

He was taken aback when the man said something like “yes sir, I am John Fill, this is my wife Mary and our son and daughter Dick and Jane are at the other table”.

Hamilton paused a moment, took a deep breath and said, “I would like to thank you for playing on behalf of the ACBL” and walked away shaking his head.

I wonder if Dudley Freshwater ever directed with Harry Goldwater.
