A curious question about a choice of lead
It does not lead to arbitrary interpretations. The interpretations are simple and obvious. All laws that lead to judgement decisions, whether under 2007 laws or 2017 laws, are subject to different opinions, sometimes in borderline cases fairly divergent. Neither of these facts makes any particular law under either law book ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
When it is a penalty I call it a penalty. When it is an adjustment (assigned or artificial) I call it an adjustment.
A curious question about a choice of lead
Why is that weird? The NOS have done nothing wrong so they are allowed to gain from the illegal play. For the OS it is authorised when you can see it, unauthorised when you cannot. Seems reasonable to me.
A curious question about a choice of lead
We realise that is what you are saying but we do not think you are correct. What do you want is a little more sympathy for the people that suffer. Players want to play bridge and that includes the opponents following the rules. If their opponents do not follow the ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
Not really. There is a lot of luck in bridge, and random happenings at other tables go on all the time. As for the NOS the game has been spoilt for them by a revoke: once established nothing makes it bridge any more, so a trick penalty is desirable. If ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
So talk to the WBFLC. For now we have the 2007 laws (2008 laws in the ACBL) shortly to be replaced by the 2017 laws. I can tell you do not direct in a club, however.
A curious question about a choice of lead
I disagree strongly. It has made it a simple UI case, and that makes the law easy. Of course there are and always will be borderline judgements in UI cases: that does not make the law wrong. As for multiple penalty cards any player fool enough to do that gets ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
Now we are approaching 100 votes I shall tell you where this is from. I went to Prague to an EBL tournament directors course on the 2017 laws. One evening we went to Prague bridge club for simulations and this is the one that I did. We were not told ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
Why do we have to "justify" it? Every so often someone makes a lead against me that I find frankly incredible. Usually it is very poor for him, occasionally it works. But absent restrictions based on UI he can lead what he likes. While I thought the HJ lead was ...
A curious question about a choice of lead
Correct. Once the diamond lead was banned the diamond goes back into partner's hand and there is no obligation to play it.
