Wernher OP Final -- Royal Screw-Up
Having read about this so late, sounds like 1. Directors should have removed boards from tables as soon as Round 1 ended, to stop anyone from starting Round 2. (That was the crucial step!!!) 2. Use the F11-->EDMOV-->Reassign boards feature in ACBLscore to show which boards were on ...
common game thursday May 18
On the first hand, I played Q-low in trumps to scream I had the H!K and partner had NOT led hearts. Declarer mistimed the play and led a heart herself to the ace and I didn't need to unblock the king due to being sure I'd have ...
You be the director!
Barry, I do not understand your comment. With a correct alert (and if asked, explanation) of the Double, you'd expect West to now bid 2 to show the majors and ask East to pass or correct.
Is this the worst change to the 2017 laws
Corey, from your description, by law, if a pair withdraws their cards from the board and the auction begins, they cannot play the board later. (Yes, in a club game, typically you don't consider the player could talk with his partner about what his hand happened to be for ...
Is this the worst change to the 2017 laws
Since these two pairs are not supposed to play the affected boards, I wonder how many (club) directors know what to do in their scoring software and/or Bridgemate/Bridgepad or similar software to show this change to the movement? (I just tried this in ACBLscore by setting up an ...
To Show or Not To Show?
Last week, I attempted to turn on the Bridgemate percentages feature for the last 3 rounds of a 9-round club game. It didn't work. The following day, the director started the game and the percentage feature was working (I forgot to uncheck the box after the previous day's ...
New laws to go into effect by 30 September 2017
Ed, I admit I don't know when in 2007 the final version of those laws was released. But comsidering the dates of first use below, it looks to me the allowed time (6 months) to start using the 2017 laws is clearly less than last time. England - EBU: 01 ...
New laws to go into effect by 30 September 2017
It's my understanding ACBL began using the 2007 laws much MUCH later (September 2008) than other organizations. This 30 September 2017 deadline feels significantly sooner in comparison to a decade ago and I think it will be a challenge for law books and other materials (e.g., 2017 Duplicate ...
Opening with a short club
It would help a lot if two announcements were officially allowed: 1. "doubleton only if 4=4=3=2" (therefore officially natural) 2. "may be short" (non-forcing and artificial because of not using the first choice announcement)
Opening with a short club
We all know "may be short" is officially all you are allowed to announce. If you add the minimum length in a few extra words ("may be as short as two") or a very clear and short "doubleton only when 4=4=3=2", that would be OK. But longer ...
