about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

Joel Brandell's bidding problem: KQTxx AQTx --- Axxx

Would you rebid 1NT?
If I pass and partner doubles, 1NT is easy and obvious.
Bridge Ethics vs Bridge Law - Impossible Situation
All true. But you still call the TD first, not afterwards.
Would you rebid 1NT?
Never vulnerable All the time NV at matchpoints
Bridge Ethics vs Bridge Law - Impossible Situation
A shorter answer. The real problem is with these two sentences: "Beacuse of the above, I decided not to call the TD, I would have transmitted the UI after all, wouldn't I ? Besides, I did not see the reason why the timing of the call should affect the ruling ...
Bridge Ethics vs Bridge Law - Impossible Situation
I am glad you are thinking about such things, but you seem to be getting yourself into a totally unnecessary twist here. You have UI that at the other table there was a slow pass in the passout, probably on this board but not necessarily on this auction – you are ...
