Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A clear case of aphasia, and yet . . .
I don't think it matters what the person involved would have done had the situation been reversed. All you can do is set a good example.
A clear case of aphasia, and yet . . .
The reason we have a director rather than a robot is to make judgments. Based on your title for this article, you are convinced it was a slip of the tongue, so there is no reason you should feel "stuck". Your very job is to make sure the law is ...
A clear case of aphasia, and yet . . .
I don't agree, Jim. The purpose of all this is to ensure the card the declarer intended to play and thought she called is the one played. It would be very hard for me to rule that she be forced to play the K when that most clearly ...
Is playing the same boards in a pairs event important?
9 1/2 tables is the club director's nightmare. There are many different movements and not one of them is easy or satisfactory. Sounds to me like your director at least knew why he selected the one he did, and that would be good enough for me.

Upside down count question
Count and attitude signals (UD or Std) are signals given when following or discarding. They do not apply to leads. You can, of course, make any agreement you want about leads, but that is an independent issue from count and attitude signaling.
Lecture for Flight B players
Not a hand per se, but I teach this exact topic and I find that the most important part is to get people to [b]identify[/b] what their possible options or lines of play are. If they can't do that, they can't learn how to select the ...
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
Since I play opening 2 as GF, 2 "waiting" shows that I do not have a good 5 card major or a good 6 card minor or that I have fewer than 10 points. That's a lot of information for my partner, who can proceed to bid ...
