Eric Hamilton's lead problem: QT953 4 A73 KT96
Can't argue with that, but then we wouldn't have an opening lead problem :)
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: 98 AQ2 K854 QT84
It would be very helpful to know which drugs partner is on. Uppers suggest a pass, downers suggest 3N or double.... and either way, aren't we supposed to disclose this to the opponents? :)
Strange goings-on
I recall a story about Al Roth recognizing a board that he had played some days ago at the same national event. In the old days of hand-shuffling and dealing, it's easy to see how a board could be accidentally transferred from the not-made pile to the made pile ...
Are Rules Meant to be Broken?
In slow play situations: Maybe I'm just lucky with the directors that I've encountered, but I've generally gotten good outcomes when I call the director at the start of the round: "The opps just got here and we're already five minutes into the round - we'll ...
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: Q954 J632 J87 95

Hobson's Choice
> Should you hit your 2m contract, be sure you won't play it unless it is a bad contract. Switch the east and west hands and a 2S bid by the opponents would be more likely. But as the cards lie the hand in the passout seat after 1D-1H-2C has ...
The Adventures of Mrs. I. Fixum
How fixed were they really? You won the board as soon as you decided (with half the field) to go low, did you not? They just didn't get the top that they were hoping for from your error. Now, if 3N were going down.... then they could complain about ...
Interesting Ruling Situation
"Responder explained his as..." and said that he "took as...."? Several parts of my anatomy are hurting.
