Tie breaking in USBC KO matches
Clearly best for 90 board matches that end midday. I like the idea in general. My order would be: 1. Winner of previous KO match. 2. Winner of previous RR match. 3. BAM 4. Last set score, followed by previous set, etc.
A New Ethics?
Cases 1 and 2 are trivial. You have to pay attention. Case 3 is also a no for me. Even at the highest levels, I don't think one should be able to 'claim on a squeeze', unless it is 100% clear cut which suit to play AFTER the squeeze ...
CNTC Semi-Finals. Four teams remain in the hunt.
There was a 1790 in the US trials today, so kind of easy to figure where 1770 comes from..
USA1 Round of 8, Day 2
It seems that one should play the ask is for the JACK when you have already shown a solid suit, as in this auction.
Invitational or Attempt to Signoff
Craig: You play in a tough game, your opponents always lead the right suit! Also notice that 3D seat couldn't open, 5th seat couldn't over call; the opponents are likely to be balanced too.
Invitational or Attempt to Signoff
Not a big inverted minors fan, but when I do play it, the first question I ask is 'is 2NT forcing?'. FWIW, I prefer NF at match points, F1 at IMPs
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
Right. I missed a card...
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
I don't think there is a squeeze even if West fails to break up the communication. West helps guard hearts. In the 4 card ending, East still has an idle club.
A "TYP" Bid
Agreed, Michael. One just needs to have that agreement. Whether 5 to show a second suit is playable, given the fact that slam may be bid of AK is debatable.
A "TYP" Bid
How does a 5 bid that neither shows nor denies a spade control help partner to evaluate their hand? Does it specifically show a second suit?
