An Absurd ACBL Procedure
When these first appeared I thought -wow, this is the future of duplicate bridge. The practical benefits of these devices are huge. I’m assuming there are some cost/manufacturing issues? Otherwise every club would have them by now.
An Absurd ACBL Procedure
Just out of curiosity (and somewhat in relation to this discussion) does anyone know if there has been any progress in the device that deals the boards at the table for you? I think this was a demo a few years back at some European events.
What is this Double?
Richard-Andy’s example above is after 1-1. This is one of many hands that would bid 2 with a 4-card heart suit.

5 then 6 over 5. Even if we have a granny on (and are able to legitimately bid it) the opponents are very likely to bid 7 either as insurance or a sure bet. Harder to sacrifice if you start with a bid that can be ...
Claim ruling poll
IMO this is very clear cut. We can never know if declarer would unblock having played an honour and finding out 4-0. Level of player doesn’t matter. In fact a good and/or experienced player would realise that they made an error. If he or she states what they ...
