“Its 2 weeks ago now but these events get replayed everyday in my last 15 minutes of consciousness just when there is nothing you want to be thinking about.”

Imagine what it would be like if you hadn't won the event. It would be 10 times worse.

I know because of my own Antelope moment…

I would love to see a feature that lets a reader see the “most liked” comments.

Geoff,
Always a pleasure to play against you.

I was surprised when clicking through vugraph archives of the recent trials that Eric and you were discussing your continuations over (1C) X (1H=4+S) ? ……The meaning of Double or 1S ….or so the vugraph operator's comment suggested.

Was the idea to refresh/remember the agreement ? Or was it a first timer ?

And my second question is : Do you guys write down your agreements ?

Hi all, I wasn't aware of the original references. I've just heard people (occassionally) use it and I kinda like “the wife” as an expression.

Not so sure how long it will last if this stuff continues :)

Diamond to the nine might be better if the hand was solely about extracting the maximum diamond tricks. But the actual hand, as often, involves optimizing combination plays in various suits and a diamond to the honour seems indicated.

Han, from this one event I had five or six examples of being Wife-Smashed.Thought i'd stop at three in the article as it was getting a bit tiresome :)

Ha ha got me there ( I was east)
Actually the sq was a giveaway around the s10 being in the south hand
I was worried about the d kjxx cashout when declarer ha/s the hq
In retrospect that does not fit into the tempo of declarers play … Phil would have tried to sneak a club far far earlier ….

On the first hand, I suspect the odds favour playing on diamonds. Say you pitch a diamond on the 3rd spade for you need only four diamond winners. Now cross to a club and play a diamond to the queen. They cash the fourth spade (Assuming West has the J).

The daring way to play would be to pitch a club from dummy, win the club return and lead the Q. Declarer is always going to rise with the A, ditch a heart and take a diamond hook.

But if East covers, the hand is alive despite the 4-1 split.

Undertricks be damned. This would be a real man's play.

I strongly agree with Michael Rosenberg's post.

Using “cheating” sparingly (and appropriately) helps set a better context than the current language (including Steve's second-degree stance)

Permitting video review by the committee (or directors) SHOULD be a no-brainer.
I hope that is ACBL policy.

I'm of the view that any insta-low declarer loses any rights for redress about third-in-hand player's tempo.

Agree with your pitch.

The sample quality or sample size of the polled players is a core component of why the rest of the of the process went so wrong.

I would pass at the table. In the style we play, 2D promises nothing special, not even a doubleton club.

Despite my aversion to electronization of bridge, I find this a fascinating product.
It certainly deserves a few trials in elite competition to see what the experience is like.
Thanks to BBO for this innovation. Look forward to using it sometime !
