Open Memphis Discussion Thread
I have arrived. In addition to Chuck Berry's Memphis (I love the line "with hurry-home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye") and Dylan's Stuck Inside of Mobile ("it all seems so well timed") I heard Big River (Grateful Dead version) and Dylan's Highway 61 ...
Boyd, Bramley, and Radin Elected to ACBL HOF
Thanks to everyone! And congrats to Peter and Judi! We all waited a long time for this.
First hand of Swiss
We need a vowel so we can pronounce it. And we would much rather SCUM them than SCAM them.
First hand of Swiss
My favorite method, SCuM (Shape, Color, Majors), is great for this hand. I double to show either spades and diamonds, or hearts and clubs. At my next turn I will jump to five hearts, implying a slam drive with hearts and clubs, and better and/or longer hearts (with my ...
Goodbye, Russ
This is very sad news. Russ and I went back to the '70s when we both lived in New England. My first friend in the family was his older brother Steve (who passed away in 1985). Russ and I were variously partners, teammates and opponents on many occasions, and always ...
Advanced safety plays
The second deal is the last board of the 2003 Bermuda Bowl. Declarer Lauria was manually playing dummy's cards because Versace had left the room to find out the status of the match. The safety play is the SPADE QUEEN, which would have guarded against declarer not noticing that ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Damo: If you're going to cite my article to support your theory, do all of us the favor of showing the deal and the specific actions you find "strange". Yes, I said that "off-center actions abounded" on the deal. The most glaring was a favorable third-seat weak 2 ...
Necessary Shift
West may have missed the killing defense, but he does have a perfect 13-card straight.
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
I'm relieved that our calculations of the relative merits of the two lines are now consistent, albeit not identical. I see that I erred by assuming that QJ would allow the suit to be set up with one ruff, which will affect my count of both lines. And my ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
Kurt: My math is different. I excluded deals with voids but included all other deals. I made the same assumptions about possible holdings from which the lead could be made (half of the time from J10 or J108, never from J103, even though I consider that last assumption doubtful). Line ...
