0/3 Ambiguity
so much easier with Gerber. :-) (call it minorwood if it makes you feel better).
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
It certainly looks as though the Blue Team were better at cheating than anyone else; I don't however consider that something to celebrate.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I played Fantunes online for a while with Will Roper, only problem was I kept getting lost in the multi-level relays. The two-level openings are fine, its the shape-showing continuations after a 1-level opening I had problems with. Bill's book is a good introduction too, worth a read simply ...
where did east-west go wrong on this hand
lead A at trick 1, partner will discourage suggesting a switch, now its easier to lead a low diamond. If partner had encouraged then would lead Ace and another trump.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 94 K9764 975 QT7
Stop drinking the something stronger, its messing with your judgement. :-)
Style Poll
Auction 1; 5 losers
Dominic Cooke's bidding problem: J8 J65 KQ97 7652
my partner would be showing a 5 loser hand. I would normally downgrade my hand and pass but some of my club losers gave gone away.
A question on the laws
Ask Marcel Marceau.
A question on the laws
Ray: I don't really care what his intent was, I was merely stating how I as a director would interpret his actions. Others may choose differently. My view is that if he didn't intend to claim then he should keep his cards concealed.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I believe that 20/1 in an English bookmakers is equivalent to 21/1 in an American one. In England the stake is also returned to a winner.
