Who Will Direct the Directors?
I play a similar system and can totally understand the reason for rebidding 1 with the given hand when playing it 4+, forcing and possibly a canape. 2m is limited and denies a 4+M ...His hand was almost too strong for a NF 2m bid but not strong ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Kit; (and Steve) When there is a possible defense that succeeds but that defense becomes impossible with the information given then I would allow the defense to prevail 100% of the time. What do I mean by possible? If you would never consider the winning D then I would call ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I think David may be right... The laws should be changed to treat situations like this differently. When the information given makes the winning defense impossible, but a successful defense is possible with the accurate information (so at least 1 of the polled players found the winning defense given the ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
It seems strange that you might give misleading information and when caught the worst that happens is that equity is restored. That is like freerolling the system for a weighted score or no adjustment at all and should not be possible.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I don't know what about my suggestion would be illegal. Feel free to clarify.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
they were given a weighted score change. I would allow the defenders to get the maximum score that they might have achieved with complete information. ( i wasn't trying to say that I would award them 24 imps or something like that, just that they should be allowed to defend ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I think the question "did 1 promise 5?" need only be answered with "yes" or "no". That is a bad way to ask a question. "Explain the bidding" or simply "how many are promised with a 1 bid?" would be more useful. Having said that, when the ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
I wouldn’t describe the grand as desperate, facing 2 small D it was going to be quite good. Even with the shape facing it would be excellent if they had the J10 of S. I don’t think they were steaming, they were trying to outplay their opponents, it ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
If the hand with the primary S had 1 or more D then 7 would be somewhere between ok and fantastic. Only facing 0 D and no extras was 7 nearly hopeless. Unlucky.
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
When a contract is virtually un makeable but there are a couple of wildly unlikely lines that might succeed its difficult to fault declarer for going for a 1.5% line instead of a 1.2% line. Club ace Doubleton or the H Q short with short trump vs 2-2 ...
