Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
Maybe I have sensitive hearing, but does anyone else think there is a chance one could hear one's partner tapping their screen, either in making a bid or (more likely) when explaining/alerting a call? This could be a problem 1) with the tempo issues already presented, and 2 ...
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
Bidding in tempo is not a requirement of ACBL law... Bridge is a thinking game and, so long as the thinking isn't egregious to the extent it is consistently delaying the game (in which case the policy--or respective lack thereof at present--regarding slow play would take over), players should ...
Drury or splinter?
Other; no amount of hearts correctly describes this hand after 1H-2D; 2H. I personally cannot stand two-way drury, but this hand does not work for standard drury either. Game has good plays opposite: xx AKxxx xx Kxxx or even xx AQJx xxx Kxxx (though that is a rather anemic opener ...
From the Well: Adam Kaplan's Perspective
I think that bridge is not the only thing dying out. Perhaps it will take a bit longer, but all card games will eventually become obsolete, as will cards themselves. I got 'hooked' because I was around cards and card games since I was old enough to know how to ...
Do You?
It would help to know the vulnerability. I assumed that because everyone's name was white that meant none vul but couldn't tell. I will not pre-balance on this ratty collection, especially since partner could be sitting on 4 or 5 good hearts. In matchpoints a double is slightly ...
Ethical double
We have too many Spades to be defending for a beat. Also, I know that at my table, we sometimes look at the hands after playing them to see how to bid it/make it, etc. I always mix up my cards after looking, but I have caught my partner ...
aggressive opening?
Also, note that I am not a huge rule of 15er, I would open it if I had had 4 spades instead of 4 hearts because of the possibility of buying it for 2 spades or pushing them to 3H. (even despite the loser count)>:(
aggressive opening?
Are you trying to get a board back? ;D No... the seat is wrong, the vulnerability does not help (though it is not a deciding factor), the shape is too boring and flattish, and I would prefer having this hand as a response or a takeout double than an opening ...
7NT for both sides?
Apparently the html for the hand did not work. Try this URL: http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?d=s&v=b&c=&n=d765432c8765432&e=dakqjt98cakqjt9&s=sakqjt98hakqjt9&a=-7ns or w
7NT for both sides?
For those of you who have actually answered, and the cheaters in the world (I know you're out there ;D ), here is an example hand: {handviewer d=s&v=b&c=&n=d765432c8765432&e=dakqjt98cakqjt9&s=sakqjt98hakqjt9&a=-7ns or w} Both South and West can make 7NT. If ...
