Consequences of Forgetting an Agreement
Absolutely agree with what Michael says about the real agreement being "no agreement" in these scenarios. I wish this were standard TD practice. I believe that it is standard practice in the Netherlands for first round auction agreements but I may be wrong.
Willenken's defense from Friday's bulletin article
Thanks for sharing Scott great hand. It would be nice if Bridgewinners would link directly to the bulletings directly somehow to bring more them more traffic from users outside the US.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Ax J Q9xxx AQTxx
Sigh... I knew I was wasting my time last time.
A Bit of Everything
We play clubs and discover for certain that he does not have a club honour... If he has nothing in either minor he might have led either - however, he chose clubs. If you accept the premise that he is unlikely to have led from an honour (which seems normal against ...
