What are the ruling principles here?
For your convenience, here is the North hand again, together with the South hand: [b]AK103, -, AKJ73, AJ82 QJ62, 63, Q982, Q105[/b]
What are the ruling principles here?
In my opinion the double was not very slow. But South could expect something very unusual because upon seeing 6 hit the table East made a very loud exclamation such as 'goodness me' (hard to translate from Hungarian).
What are the ruling principles here?
You are right. I thought I'd provide some entertaining background information. I missed the target, obviously.
What are the ruling principles here?
No.
What are the ruling principles here?
It's difficult for me to answer your question, I am very bad at assessing these delays. North did admit to the double being slow and West pushed the tray over immediately, at least South did not say otherwise when asked.
What are the ruling principles here?
Well, here is the North hand: AK103, -, AKJ73, AJ82. More information: The hand was played in the quarter-final of the Hungarian team championship.
What are the ruling principles here?
Your guess is right, South and West were screen-mates so the owner of the huddle was easily identifiable. Exact times were not measured. Later I may show you North's hand but I am interested only in the principles. Let it suffice that North did not have a solid hand.
What are the ruling principles here?
Double carried the usual meaning: I am not interested in a grand. Play was with screens, North and East on the same side. Up to that point all bids (even 6 and 7) were made in normal tempo.
Third hand high or low?
I held the North cards. When dummy played low I routinely inserted the 10... and I found myself on lead at trick two! I also found that the contract could no longer be defeated. You can follow the hand here: https://vugraph.lovebridge.com/screen/visoft_556151_4_1?screen=replay&ns=556115 ...
ATB playing 5m down when 3NT is much better
The problem may be that 2NT made fares better than 3NT going down.
