Cheating on BBO
I was filling in with an absolute beginner when my partner got sick for the 2nd session of a regional. The fill-in was about 8 years old and had only watched his father playing. It was mildly frustrating seeing him lead his highest honor on defense but it did work ...
Team match hand records on BBO
I've noticed that when playing in a team event where our table finishes first I can't see the results when I join the other table. People not involved in the tournament seem to have no problem seeing the hands. I'm also told that people using the old ...
Worst trump suit making slam
A pair about 30 years ago bid a slam which required losing no more than 1 trump trick. The trump suit was Axxx opposite Jxx. After stripping the side suits declarer led low toward Jxx and made when trumps were KQx onside and all the side suits broke.
2022 WBF tournament location

1354 and 2353 minimum opener rebids
I haven't run a simulation but tend to raise. Bidding 2C creates a problem when partner has 5 or 6 hearts and a fit for diamonds or clubs. You may end up in 2m instead of 4H. Playing in the minor requires making 2 more tricks than playing in ...
Summer Nationals- my favorite hand!!
Also, I fell from grace in not bidding 6nt.
Summer Nationals- my favorite hand!!
The actual hand was Ax in the long club hand. Without an opening lead 6 makes. The other hand was 1570.
Official Version of New Convention Charts
What about regional pair events that are stratified? The top strat is open but other strats aren't. Is that open, open+, basic, or basic+? I would assume at least open but can easily see an argument for basic+.
