Non Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's the ethical action here?
Oh and I did alert and explain this understanding (natural, encouraging to compete). (I just realized that this information got lost in the discussion...)
First unpleasant experience of changed 2017 Laws
In fact this comment points to a solution to the sticky cards problem: Require players to only pull out *one* bidding card from the box at a time (trust me, it's really not that hard to put them back after); once *one* bidding card is on the table (by ...
What's the ethical action here?
We (I was North) have the clear agreement when running out, 2S is natural and encourages further competition. (Otherwise we use DONT runouts (pass is nonforcing, XX forces 2C to show a one-suiter, XX-then-2S does not invite further competition.) In fact we had the successful auction 1N (X) 2S (X ...
2way checkback over a 2Nt rebid.
I have played that for a very long time and it is definitely playable.
Best Hand Held After Partner Opens
The only ever time I played Fantunes (in a not very serious pairs game, approx. 10min after having bought Fantunes revealed), my partner saw me open 1D (natural 14+) and directly raised to 7N with his balanced 23-count.
Yet another ruling ..
I agree with Jon that such a rule change is unlikely to slow down the game. After all no one complains that one cannot take back a played *card*. I understand the point that bidding cards sometimes stick to each others. Thus, a reasonable rule may be that a bidding ...
Open Orlando Discussion <span>Thread</span>
Roger Gong and myself are looking for teammates for the 10K Swiss tomorrow. Please PM me if you're interested.
ATB - missed slam
With a min, I respond 4D to 4C (the 4H asks again -- 0, 1, 1+Q, 2, 2+Q). When partner shows a nonmin (in context), x AQxxx AQx Qxxx seems to be the least he can have. I can never find the red tens (or the CJ); opposite none ...
ATB - missed slam
I would bid this 1H-2C 3S[1=5=3=4]-4C[optional ace-ask] (planning to go back to hearts later) 5C[nonmin, 2+Q]-5D[kings?] (if none, nonmin partner almost certainly has both red queens, so the 6-level should be safe) 6C[no]-6H (only at imps...) as usual ...
Late Start in USA - Spain Match
Ahah... it's pretty funny that I copy-pasted that sentence and didn't notice the remark about 1st/2nd seat. Still, I think it is pretty clear that if 0+ responses are considered worth mentioning (I think even in a standard context most of us scrape a response with xxxxxx ...
