Clarification of Tom Kniest Hand
Hi Randy, I was the reviewer that day for NABC+ appeals. When we had player committees, I would've been called the "screener." Now that the appeals are handled by directors, I have all the duties that the screener did (talking with appellants and non-appellants, doing additional polling if necessary ...
Clarification of Tom Kniest Hand
That is not what was said. I may not have made myself as clear as I should have. What I said was: according to the poll that I took, the consensus was 7-10 seconds would be normal for this auction, given it's highly unusual nature. Longer than 10 seconds ...
Ever heard or seen this?
I was just talking with a poker dealer about bridge. He told me he grew up with bid whist, which I had never heard of. Amazing that this all happened a couple of weeks ago! He told me about "uptown" and "downtown." It all sounded pretty interesting. Thanks for the ...
Retiring TD -- Roger Putnam
I moved out to the west in time to get to work with him for a few tournaments. He's top notch and has the best people skills! I never see anyone who is unhappy when he leaves the table. Something I hope to be able to achieve someday.
The rest of the story...
I don't know what to tell you, Peg. If you don't think the director understands the issues, spell it out for them. I know there are times when we think we know what the problem is only to find that the player sees a different problem. If we ...
The rest of the story...
The only time you would be seeing the forms is if you said you were appealing. We don't fill out forms when handling a ruling, but we do make a record of the hand.
The rest of the story...
Peg, there are still appeal forms. They are filled out at NABCs for every appeal that occurs (or might occur). Both sides still have to sign it. That process has not changed.
The rest of the story...
Peg, While that's true. If 100% say they would bid but wouldn't fault anyone for passing, still no one passed. So, even if they're thinking about it, they still don't do it. Therefore, it's not considered to truly be a logical alternative.
The rest of the story...
Definitely not, nor should that be included. We want to know what people would do given no UI. That's how we get a true poll. And, in the hand you posted about, it seems people passed, so the board was adjusted.
The rest of the story...
True, it's not a great analogy, just something that came up recently. All I'm really trying to get at is that, when polling, if everyone takes the same action as our person with UI when they didn't have any UI, we can't now force that person ...
