Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB - Matchpoints, grand played in second best game
I'm not sure I wanna be in 7 even if they do lead a trump
More Active Ethics
There are cases where partner has a "one more try" hand and is using Drury in case you stylistically open quite light in 3rd seat and, since you have the boss suit, aren't in a rush to bid game, he/she sees no reason to immediately kick it in ...
ATB - Interference after 2/1
I at least sympathize with W. He doesn't want to blast a slam but doesn't have a great descriptive call over 4. Still mostly his fault.
For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
They imply that even simpler versions of the deep learning AI "outperform" WBridge5, which borrows from human conventions, which leads the authors to theorize that computers might do better at bidding without any human influence. I think that's an important result/conjecture from the paper. I also note that ...
Do you care?
I see compliments as akin to high-fiving after a free throw or made shot in basketball or equivalent actions in other competitions, a simple act of energy boosting and reinforced encouragement. Any sports coach at any level will tell you these actions have a net positive effect, even if they ...
Clubs Rule
This is what I like. Diamond to the 10 seems super necessary since from the lead it looks like E has Kxx of spades and at least might have raised with the A as well. I think there's a good chance West has that card. J could be anywhere ...
Double! A new meaning of an old bid.
Couldn't pass fast enough because it means one of them psyched and we caught them.
ATB - Missed Game
After 3 my auction for N/S would go X-4-4 (flexible hand)-4 (implies 3 a good amount of the time)-AP which is not a ton of fun on repeated spade leads. Getting to 5 is tough.
ATB: 2/1 Problem
4 is the kind of bid I make if my partner knocked over my 5th beer onto my shirt at midnights.
How many infractions did EW commit?
E's statement before opening lead was incorrect, he/she should have stayed quiet until the hand is over. I do think that E has sufficient information from the auction that partner has taken the 2 bid the wrong way. I like X instead of 4 in case ...
