Short-term cellphone options in Toronto
No 7-11's around here, and "walking distance" is a bit of an overbid, it's almost 2km. More in my case because I asked the hotel where to go to find a 7-11, they sent me to a Raba market a few blocks in the opposite direction, and when ...
What are your leads?
The problem with giving "all relevant information" is that in the case of leads and cardings it could take several minutes to go through all the possibilities. Just listing all the bold leads on the convention card is a significant amount, and there are also lots of leads that aren ...
Short-term cellphone options in Toronto
My cellphone isn't a ball and chain to be free of. I mainly use it to contact my bridge partners and/or arrange dinner plans during the NABC. If I were someone who were wedded to their cellphone, I wouldn't still be using an archaic flipphone.
What are your leads?
The choice of whether or not to lead away from an honor is a judgement call, not a matter of partnership agreement. If you learned leads from Mike Lawrence's book, do you need to disclose that you practically never underlead aces against suit contracts?
What are your leads?
Bird and Anthius explicitly point out that their results show that many standard leads aren't necessarily best. But those leads will remain standard unless a large number of bridge players switch. And don't forget that their analysis was double dummy, they didn't have to depend on inferences ...
Should a Committee, Overturn or Uphold This Ruling? (And how would you, as a director, have ruled?)
@Tim Forgetting an agreement doesn't mean the agreement doesn't exist. If I borrow something, and forget to return it, does that mean the agreement to return it doesn't exist and I get to keep it? If the pair have a habit of being on the wrong page ...
Should a Committee, Overturn or Uphold This Ruling? (And how would you, as a director, have ruled?)
You're trying to ascertain whether West's explanation is misinformation. Does it really make sense to use the explanation itself as evidence of its own correctness? Surely the lawmakers intended this to mean evidence independent of what we're trying to judge. A convention card or written notes is ...
Idiotism?
FYI, North's hand doesn't meet Mel's Rule of 9 for when to convert a takeout double to penalty. Add your length in opponent's suit, the number of honors in the suit, and the contract level, and if it's 9 or higher pass. 4+2+2 ...
Which meaning is alertable?
Sorry, assumed "Mexican" was well known to mean that it's a balanced hand in between opening 1NT and 2NT. So your question was like asking "What variant of Jacoby 2NT do you play?"
Which meaning is alertable?
We have a couple of pages of notes describing continuations, I don't know where my partner got them from, so I don't know whose variant it is. It might be our own, as I've not run into others who limit their 2 openings the way we ...
