Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
'If the UI hadn't occurred, then neither would the AI'? Do you think that is a valid/relevant argument? I have frequently made a stupid bid or played a bad card when an opponent has tranced prior to my play. It doesn't occur to me that I should ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I clarified that the pause was considerably longer than was required by the rules and my partner left no doubt that he was considering a bid. So while the situations may not be the same - the obligatory pause doesn't enter into it
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I had a dilemma a few weeks ago when my partner paused for a long time in an auction in such a way that suggested he held a club suit. I posted it and the resultant poll was overwhelmingly one sided. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/can-i-lead-a-club/ I'm not ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Normally I agree with you on questions of law and sportsmanship. But I think you are ignoring one vital fact here - the comment. If I made a gratuitous comment that pretty much invited the opposition to lead a diamond, I would be too embarrassed to call the director when they ...
Slow Play, a day behind the “ Flash”
@Ed, You aroused my inner nerd and my inner pedant. Jay Garrick was The Flash first and though Barry Allen came next, he was dead for about 20 years when Wally West was The Flash (Though Barry is now alive again and back in costume".) Bart Allen and a few ...
Defender's claim challenged by declarer
Directors are busy people and your director probably had other things that needed doing. But, when possible, I think it is good policy for the director to hang around for a few minutes after a ruling is made - especially if anyone seems annoyed by the ruling. It stops the annoyed ...
