KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I originally voted "yes" on the understanding that allowing the forfeit would be to the detriment of at least one member of the winning team. It seems, upon reading further, that this is not the case, or at least may not be the case, so I've changed my vote ...
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
Don't mind Kieran, Tom. He only knows how to speak bombast. Anything he doesn't agree with is always "mindless", or "stupid", or some such. I do only see a 6 1/2 loser hand though, which, IMHO, merits some kind of game try.
Why do these guys cheat?
I don't believe that to be the case Jeff, at least given my experience. At most clubs that I have played in (6 big clubs and in cities, and about the same number of smaller clubs in more rural areas), there are maybe 3-4 pairs that cheat consistently, and ...
Why do these guys cheat?
The universal ethical imperative is not "don't cheat AT BRIDGE", but rather, "Don't cheat, period". I happen to know lots of people who don't cheat, myself included, at bridge, or anything else. And yes, there ARE plenty of people at the local duplicate who take every advantage ...
Why do these guys cheat?
As far as I can make out there are three factors at play: 1.A lack of personal ethics (perhaps there is some kind of pathology there, something akin to kleptomania, but not being a psychologist or psychiatrist I wouldn't know). 2.Financial payoff (at middle to higher levels ...
How would you rule?
Wow man, your histrionics would give William Shatner a run for his money (I'm hoping that since he is not in, or running for, any public office this reference violate the holy guidelines, and doesn't bring down the wrath of Eugene). I got it. In fact, I"m ...
How would you rule?
However, in this case, as the MI was given by the defending side, the rules (at least as I understand them to be) require that the correct explanation be given after the hand has been played, but before the score is recorded.
How would you rule?
I don't insist on it John. I've done it maybe a total of 15 times in 10 years, and always at this vulnerability only. In fact, as I've noted elsewhere on this thread, even I wasn't a huge fan of my 2NT bid.
How would you rule?
A cogent argument as always Kit, thank you. Also, while I would normally be fully in agreement with you about partner bidding 5 Diamonds with a stiff (or void), I admit that in this instance, I let the fact that I had never played with her before, and therefore was ...
How would you rule?
No Gene, I wasn't making a point about sex. I was, sort of, making the point that she had no problems with my bid or reasoning, so there was no need for an apology, or fear of being dumped.
