Ralph-

Thanks for going in the well and congrats on the HOF.

Over the years you have been such an amazing teammate(besides how great you play) always encouraging and complimentary and never negative or critical. That has always been appreciated and somewhat remarkable.

However, my question isn’t about bridge. A long time ago I remember you and a friend were on a tour to catch as many(all?) the major league baseball games in different locations as you could. How many did you get in?

My answer isn't an option. I would do it at 50/50 (if I was in the mood) or 55/45 (If not in the mood) The latter would be mostly a feeler, to see how much a degen I was dealing with.

Please keep beating that dead horse till it comes back to life.

In the case of misinformation, I think we should have the rule be, something like the “Helgemo rule” That rule would be: If given the proper info, would Helgi at the table. in an important match get the defense right. IMO polling a defensive problem is a horrible way to come up with a fair result. I know when I am polled(I find it hard to believe I am the only one) I will give a thoughtful answer to questions of bidding. However, if I am in a competition, on a defensive question, I will virtually always say, I don't want to think that much right now.

This rule really needs to change asap.

Shiang-
If partner has 6 spades and 2 hearts he has a huge hand for you(from his perspective) If he had a bad 64 he would have bid 2 over 2 so that would mean he is 6241 or 6250 and would qbid 4.

Roger asked because he was always doubling till he was told it showed 5. There is no way he would ask and not double, barring me from a Heart lead, if he wasn’t planning on doubling. Notice it’s BAM. I am saddened by most of the panel. We all know(or should know) he would double and was stopped by the mis explanation. How is that equitable? Personally, I find it exactly opposite of what is fair.

Julian-
I heard that rumor the same day I heard about this:

i wish any of the bids made were in my top 50 worst bids. I think i would lean towards 2NT by South but that is pretty ugly also. If South did bid 2NT, North has pretty auto raise to 3NT. Mucho sympathy all around.

Edit: idk maybe it's right to pass 2 but that could be very very wrong also.

Right, when you open in 2nd seat and partner has a bad hand they will often assume you have a 2NT rebid hand(both opponents passed) Therefore, they will reasonably judge whether they would rather play 1H or 2NT(or higher) so they are less inclined to keep the bidding open.

Jlall you and Kevin are great. We played a bunch of sets against you, your play, ethics and comportment are virtually unparalleled. It was a great match and your team was just as deserving of winning as ours was. Sometimes the ball takes a funny bounce. Thank you to you and your team for a great sporting competition. .

Yeh, I would be afraid Alex would bust me if I changed my bid. :)

Interesting the different %'s depending on where you answered.

John-
I am half expecting your next possible reason for him being fired, was that he is suspected of shooting JFK.

“I know there are people who claims they are good at reading from the physical appearance and behaviors of opponents…they are playing the wrong game! There is a better card game for them! If they were remotely as good as they thought they are on such skills, trust me they would not be wasting their time in this game profit wise! Because if, a big IF, one is that good at reading people, you can make a fortune in one poker event that is probably enough for you and your grand kids.”

I have always respected your opinions Timo, However, IMO that paragraph is incorrect. I believe I am qualified to credibly give that opinion.

Jay-
Interestingly, I would think all those auctions are NF(assuming the 2nd one was supposed to be 1M not 2M)

Before this poll, yes. Now I am not sure(maybe in mps yes and imps no)
I would think my expert partner would q-bid, bid a new suit or jump to 3NT if he was really sweating me passing it.

I pick Josh! I would describe it as natural and forward going but not forcing.
