Club Ruling
Couldn't E/W have the (admittedly insane) agreement that 2 shows a transfer to spades over the 2 call, when 2 is explained correctly? And in South's world, isn't this then effectively what happened at the table? I mean, West DID have a 5 ...
Club Ruling
I was trying to ignore whether or not East was trying to do anything horribly inappropriate here. If this is a trend in fake alerting to deflect leads, then yes, we have bigger problems.
Club Ruling
Thanks. The 2 call makes this awkward. I'm a bit shocked that N doesn't feel they have a call (2 or 3 depending on how they took 2. Heck, 3 is in play). If N/S don't have an agreement on 2 ...
Club Ruling
E has 7 tricks and his/her partner voluntarily bid at the 2-level in the only suit that they don't have ""covered." 3NT seems eccentric but hardly a sign of fielding anything. E clearly doesn't think their partner has hearts, at least. Unless they're a wild gambler ...
Club Ruling
What is E/W agreement for the 2 call? Edit: Either glossed over this info in OP or it was added. Need more coffee. Looks like E forgot his/her side's agreements but E/Ws calls look normal given what they thought the calls showed. Looks like E ...
You can now guarantee exactly 9 playing back to the J Crossing to hand with a spade and playing a towards the 9, going up with the K if W shows out, also picks up !Qx onside for an overtrick. I guess if you're playing for safety, there ...
What does this 4NT bid mean?
IDK, I just feel like with a NT suitable hand, opener can pretty safely pass 3 here (I don't think this is 100% forcing but it's pretty damn close, and if responder has to pass then it's probably right). Agree that IF 4NT is natural, it ...
What does this 4NT bid mean?
Given the kind of club suit I expect a voluntary 4C here to show, using 4NT as natural seems to be trying to hit a really narrow target.
Second to last seed advances to round of 16
I believe when you beat a team in this format you assume their seed and therefore earn the rights afforded to the higher seed such as seating. In the scoreboard you'll see current seed and then in brackets the original seed for that team, but in the bracket you ...
ATB - Languished in 4 diamonds when slam was almost cold
North does not have a 4 bid in the framework of this system. He/she is way, way too strong. 100% north S looks like they made a reasonable decision to me. They have a 12 count and a void in partner's first suit and they're already ...
