What should the selectors do?
That is perfectly understandable - I just don't happen to think it is fair. Especially when it is likely that members of the selection committee will have prior relationships with many of those wishing to be selected. I don't see this in any way as nefarious, simply a function ...
What should the selectors do?
@Tom, I'm not being adversarial here, just clarifying what I mean by the players knowing the score. In this case I think it would be better if it were completely clearcut. i.e. Going into the Europeans, the players should know that if England qualifies, there will be trials ...
What should the selectors do?
If there was no implication that it went any further than that and the players were all aware of the fact, then it would seem obvious that they should also hold trials for the Bermuda Bowl. If trials were the right way to select for one major championship, then they ...
How should declarer approach 3N? (Part two) SORRY - EDITED
I presumed it was about taking the right precautions, in case the clubs do split 5-1 at IMPs. Or am I being insane in not seeing a 100% line to 9 just yet?
What should the selectors do?
Probably the best way to go would be to have a knowledgable and obviously impartial selection committee, all of whom had experience of international events, who used trials and other results simply as information to help them decide on the best team for any event. Such a committee, could not ...
What should the selectors do?
In reference to the original selection for the Europeans, the previous thread made it totally obvious, that Brock were not told in advance how the substitution would affect the scoring of the competition. But rather the selection committee got to decide how the scoring would be factored after the competition ...
What should the selectors do?
I can see arguments both ways. The one thing I am sure of is that the team playing in the Europeans should know prior to the event, if they are playing for automatic selection to the BB, or there will be trials for the BB (if England qualifies), or the ...
Legal Agreement or not?
"This psych is so well-known that any capable experienced player is going to cater to it, even if his partner never psychs." And one of the corollaries to this is that capable experienced opponents know what is going on and have no problem dealing with it. But we play a ...
Best Line in this Slam- and can you reconstruct the defenders hands.
Just an update. For the record actual EW hands were West.......... East Q64.........T983 43............T875 J984........Q53 QT52.......96 Lots of ways to come to 12 tricks. I wonder though, if you find yourself in 6 at pairs, if you shouldn't play for 7 anyhow and assume ...
Best Line in this Slam- and can you reconstruct the defenders hands.
Sorry yes they are swapped - I'll unswap them for future readers, but my typing skills aren't really up to getting them horizontal rather than vertical. I await my call to the BoD. Be ready for me to lead the revolution against the "comparable call" rule.
