Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
Although I know the law and know 29% passing is enough to be a logical alternative, as East I'd feel very hard done by when 2 out of 7 polled passed (about the same percentage) - and wonder who was chosen to be polled!
Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
Good point, Andy - better than partner tanking and then bidding 5 over my 5. I'm thinking 4NT, just to be able to bid 5NT and give partner a chance to bid a grand with significant extra values, is better than 5.
Common game deal Wed 16 April
It's from Wednesday afternoon the 17th.

5. AQx and AKxxx in the black suits and out makes 6NT cold if there is no black suit void out there, so I find it tough to consider pass to be a logical alternative. Partner may need a heart control and nothing else and my cards look like ...
Futile Willie?
I'm surprised more haven't mentioned South has one of the most obvious responsive doubles ever. If a small spade was a small diamond, then pass is very reasonable.
What would you say if you were director?
From the "Is this AI or UI?" thread Ray linked to, what Law 50E (Information from a penalty card) means with the literal wording (or perhaps there are multiple reasonable ways to read it) would be a great example of something our laws commission should rule on - and then make ...
What would you say if you were director?
I would recommend the list of interpretations include one to two dozen of the most common comparable call situations (such as many we have discussed here, the EBU TD forum, the BBO Laws and Rulings forum, and others).
What would you say if you were director?
Law 81C2: "The Director (not the players) has the responsibility for rectifying irregularities and redressing damage. The Director’s duties and powers normally include also the following ... to administer and interpret these Laws and to advise the players of their rights and responsibilities thereunder." A modification to the text which ...
What would you say if you were director?
John, I guess we’ll agree to disagree. When the WBF Laws Committee (WBFLC) writes the laws every ten or so years and the same body makes a law interpretation at one of their few meetings during that ten year span, it is effectively law - otherwise, why meet at all ...
What would you say if you were director?
Regarding “notes from a council meeting”, in games and sports I’ve been involved with (chess, basketball, soccer, baseball, golf), interpretations of law from the governing organization are effectively part of the rule or law book. So when the WBF Laws Committee makes a law interpretation, it is effectively part ...
