Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Misinformation or not?
Hi, Oleg. That's a reason why it's important for declarer to ask about your carding. Then you could explain that your partner hasn't learned signalling yet and that the plays are essentially random, be it leads or following suit or discards. (By random, I'm thinking similar ...
ACBL New Orleans Appeals casebook commentary published
They've never named the table director since the director's decision is normally based on a consultation with other directors. Naming the players depends on the event. Normally if it is a separate flight A/X or a high bracket of a KO they will name them but if ...
Misinformation or not?
I guess if the person truly does not know about defensive carding (i.e. throughout the had they don't use high or low to encourage or give count, when play from 3rd hand they are equally likely to play the K from KQ as they are to play the ...
Misinformation or not?
Hi Oleg, You've actually quoted the relevant piece already. Opening leader thought he had that agreement (assuming it wasn't a case of pulling the wrong card or something like that). Since he thought he had the agreement, whether or not he actually did, he should have pre-alerted you ...
Misinformation or not?
The opening lead question seems pretty simple in this case. Given that leading low from 2 requires a pre-alert and the person who made the lead thought they were playing it, they should have pre-alerted you. Since they didn't, it is MI (whether it actually affects anything is a ...
What is the bridge system that has most impressed you?
I enjoyed kibitzing Groetheim and Aa play the Viking club relay. Even though I didn't know the meaning of most of the bids when they were made, it was always amusing at the end of the auction when the explanation went along the lines that dummy is 4-2-3-4 with ...
Sportsmanlike dumping???
Yes, Yu, it was an event similar to the Cavendish but for somewhat lower stakes. The players were limited to 2000 masterpoints but the bidders didn't have those restrictions. The last time I played, my partner and I finished 2nd while Len (the OP) and hist partner won. We ...
Sportsmanlike dumping???
I forgot about those, Len, although dumping in a Calcutta because you own a significant portion of another pair isn't really sportsman like since it won't help your overall position, it's more for financial gain. I suppose the best time to do it would be if you ...
Oops! I forgot!
If you're playing 2S as P/C, wouldn't it make more sense to be "If your major is spades I want to play spades (especially at matchpoints). If not, I'm willing for you to go back to 3D." Then if responder was willing to go higher in ...
Sportsmanlike dumping???
How about a situation where your team is realistically not good enough to win the event? (I know I've "bet" against myself in the Spingold and Vanderbilt by having my flight home scheduled before the end of the event.) Is your sole goal still to win the event or ...
