I wanted to penalise in no2 but suspect most players systems will not offer a way to get back to a fair position…..so I cannot penalise them for taking this option….as there probably all bad. Bad things happen some times.

Only if you unblocked the AH first, which is not mentioned in the claim so we have to assume would not be done.

Might I add that having to open this hand 1C makes me feel ill. Im sure you gets some gains else where though, its clearly not on this hand

This looks a straight forward adjustment to 3nt-2, as however you cash the diamonds, unblocking or not, you go down 2 tricks on any half normal play.

Same here. 2D superficially shows 10+ and this hand is easily worth that even with a heart void

Indeed. I think i typed that bit thinking p had bid a suit. Lol my mind must have been somewhere else for a while

I would say more than 60% bidding, with the caveat that you are a strong card player. Many many IMPS are lost or won through poor card play, but once your at a certain level, its becomes more about what your in, than your play once there.

Hi Dave. I agree with bidding a four card major in many scenarios as you suggest when 42 or 43 (weak 3 card suit) etc etc. But we would rather have both majors in the frame with a hand like Kxxx KQx xx Jxx immediately in case the next hand bumps to say 4D next.

More often than not though P will be 44 or better, its just not guaranteed.

Its all down to personnel preference I guess. I cannot recall playing this way costing.

PS - My doubles here only promises at least 7 cards in the majors. Waiting for 4 in both makes the bid to infrequent

With my reg I would expect a cue bid and follow up with 2S to be GF and in general deny a singleton or void (would splinter).

Indeed confusion is abound in the comments. I think I agree with you and others that this is better handled as a single suit slam try, but based on whats happened I cannot understand Norths pass of 4S, if South has shown 64 and some slam interest, thus my vote.

The bidding explanations in the OP suggest 4S shows a mild slam try, so not sure where you got this info from?

I put other as this is not an option, but 8-11 was nearly close enough…..but like any rule(s) there will be exceptions.

6S by North is an excellent spot. South bidding it is far worse, but still not without some play

Its clear penalty unless you have discussed otherwise IMO. But I wont have this issue ever, as I dont like support dbls.

I have just had confirmation that under WBF regs our claim stands and you are protected from misclicks etc etc, provided your claim is clear and correct.

As my P effectively stated his cashing order, the ruling is in our favour here.

A good way to play and in truth why I joined an online club. To basically keep my hand in more, as playing f2f as often as we would like, is not possible.

But in this case the match is part of a well organised league with Imps scoring. Its very competive with relegations and promotions (if in a lower division) and champions of course.

This claim equates to a 19 imp swing in one hand of 18. Thats a big old lump! We actually won the match 20-0 even with this bad board, but if the score is changed the result becomes 20-minus 5 as the club use an extended scale to deter shooting towards the end.

This would put our opp very close to the relegation zone while not helping us at all, as we are looking like finishing with a podium place, but not likely to be able to win :(

Thats why you can put in a request for a score adjustment as these things cannot be resolved when they happen. Anthony whats your Alias on BCL? I play there as Salamander.

And appeal later. There is a process for that

This is what I thought, but in an online game with no TD, we have no choice but to resume play :(
