Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB - we pushed them to slam. Again.
We’ll bid, opps. Next hand.
"Fat Finger Syndrome"
On BBO, under ‘account’ and ‘settings’ there are options ‘Confirm bids’ and ‘Confirm plays’. When these are activated you select your bid or play and then have to select an ‘OK’ button to actually make the call/play, so you can look at what have chosen before it gets sent ...
Double dummy problem from actual play
I think a mole squeeze is where one hand has a suit which is not quite good enough to enforce a throw in eg AQ8, but the hand sitting under it is squeezed into throwing an intermediate, thus allowing his partner to be thrown in. So it doesn’t look ...
What Might a “virtual” NABC look like?
I’ve had a similar idea for an anonymised individual. I would be interested to see how many people psych when it is genuinely the case that their partner has no more reason to expect it than the opponents!
Escape from 1NT?
Always transfer and don’t worry about the occasional times when passing would be better.
Have You Seen This Type of Psychic
Since this looks identical to a fielded psych, and since anybody could always claim they were playing for partner to misremember, I think this should be treated as a fielded psych.
(1!S) - X - (2!S) - X
Since the initial double doesn’t promise 4, I strongly believe the second double should be two places to play.
How would you rate South's double?
I don’t double on this sort of hand, and when my partner does it I tend to overcompete as I expect a more distributional hand (but perhaps that is my fault).
What is a logical alternative anyway?
According to the OP, it is his own opinion that the bid is a clear mistake. My feeling is that your peers are those who make the same type of mistakes as you do at about the same frequency. Eg consider 2 players one of whom consistently overbids, the other ...
What is a logical alternative anyway?
David, the OP says “you believe bidding 4H is a clear error”. I’m taking that to mean “you believe It is a clear error even without UI”, but it seems you think it means “you believe it is a clear error because of the UI has told you he ...
