Punish un-convicted team members?
This issue is contentious because we are conflating many topics into a single discussion. 1. The notion of types of cheating. Is cheating just cheating? Or are there different types of cheating of greater and lesser seriousness? 2. Proof of cheating. What constitutes proof? 3. Jurisdiction. Which organization(s) are ...
Punish un-convicted team members?
One difference is that in college sports, a player can transfer to another school if his first school is banned from play and sanctions against his school don't travel with him.
Punish un-convicted team members?
I agree with Jeff G. Catching cheats is hard and if we want a process for adjudicating accusations of cheating that approaches fairness (I do), it takes a lot of resources to build an unassailable case, even against brazen cheats. I'd like NBOs to be motivated not to send ...
Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: QJ43 J4 A642 T95
After partner removes my double, I plan to raise 3 to 4 and 3 to 4.
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: QTx x ATxx Q8xxx
i am in the camp that thinks penalty double is on the hungry side at IMPs. To show a worthwhile profit against 3X, you need to beat them 2+ tricks. The penalty doubler has 2.5 defensive tricks (admittedly with some chances for an extra). Double is implicitly asking ...
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
What is more likely, exactly 3-3-1-6 or partner holding one of: 2-4-2-5, 2-5-2-4, 1-5-2-5, etc. So, yes, double can come up empty, but so can 2 and it may well do so more often than double.
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
Even if 2 is an inverted raise, game is still possible for our side. Give partner as little as: Kxxxx, Qxx, x, xxxx and we can make a surprise 4 game. (And remember, partner could have an ace more than that). So even though entering the auction ...
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: 9 JT AQJT976 AJ9
3 is much more attractive at IMPs.
Kevin Fay's bidding problem: 97532 Q9 A62 973
There are game chances and vul at IMPs I don't need great odds to justify bidding it. I want to offer 4 and 5. However. 4 leaves partner room to bid 4, if his are excellent, which I will pass.
Jeff Lehman's lead problem: A654 84 T73 QT82
Excellent point.
