Unusual UI Situation
The question is whether 4N is "demonstrably suggested" over pass by the hesitation. In this case, opener's actual hand is sufficient "demonstration" that 4N was suggested over Pass by the UI.
Assess the Blame: getting to 6!C
"8 board match at 20 VPs. Spots approximate. If it matters, this is the second board after a flat first board, against solid opponents slightly better than you." That's all nice to know, thank you. More importantly, however, I'd like to know whether 4 was forcing... If ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Brian, you wrote: "Strict drug testing rules unrelated to bridge performance = unimportant" Do you know this is the case for Helgemo, or are you just guessing? (Not a rhetorical question - I genuinely don't know whether Clomiphene might help bridge performance.)
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: KJT x Kxxxx KQTx
Personally, I'd bid 5C not 4S with your example hand - always last train when I need to make a fake cuebid. But more importantly, do you really think partner with your example hand should bid slam over a 5C cuebid from us? He needs a lot of cards from ...
Unfortunate Result
If you look at the NS hands only, what contract do you want to be in after the auction to 5?
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: KJT x Kxxxx KQTx
What are the 5 bidders afraid of? I.e., what are hands where partner would bid slam over 5, but we don't want to be there? Meanwhile, if he has a spade void (likely) and two minor aces, slam is gin, but how could he do more ...
Robot Blanks King - Watch Out!
I don't think this is mysterious - GIB didn't know you had 6 hearts, so he was defending against you having started with 2533, and having A and 8 left after discarding to trick 11. Sometimes it's important to give away your shape against the bots ;)
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: Txx QJx T98xx Ax
Do you really think dummy can have the K on this auction?
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Might the analogy to the securities industry also be helpful to provide a more robust legal framework for bans from playing bridge? I would think that the main purpose of lifetime bans in this industry is to uphold the integrity of the industry, not individual punishment.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I would really like to know how much thought the polled players gave the problem before answering. I find it hard to imagine one of North's peers getting this wrong at the table, for all the reason David G has given. Yes, even blue ribbon finalists can be asleep ...
