Denver Case N9 - Make up your minds!
There are few differences between this case and Chris's. Chris's had a slow 3NT after a values oriented X of a Unusual 2NT while N9 had a slow pass where pard took advantage with a penalty double. Both cases should have rolled back,N9 gets rolled back to ...
UI Rule Intepretation Question
This should be rolled back to 3NT...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
My answer is very different from everybody except for one person, Bobby Wolff. The reason for the demise of bridge in 2040 began in the 60's. Bridge at that time had an exalted position over chess due to the Goren effect. Chess had no hero and was considered a ...
2D weak one major
It is a mild preference to HS as initials instead of SH with no issues with the co-inventors. I did not want to call it Veal because I created no treatments(just compiled them)and wanted to give credit where it is due.
2D weak one major
I call this HS for Herrmann/Spear. 2NT=Puppet to 3C, then 4M is to play. 3m=Natural and forcing 4C=Bid the suit one beneath his suit so that advancer can play the hand 4D=Bid your overcalled suit 4H=P/c For the reasoning for the 4C through ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
My suggestion is a 48 board IMP match on BBO to settle the dispute. I doubt it will happen but that would be my way of settling this dispute. The reason is that after the qualifying Swiss, GNT's regardless of category are usually decided in KO IMP matches.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AK6 A63 AQ97532 ---
Oh, joy, another Bridge World death hand(BTW Liam, Emily Middleton posed another hand like this one about a month ago.). The options are the same: the honest but heavy double jump to 3 of a minor or fudging a jump shift to the other minor(Emily's other minor ...
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
To Ken Rhodes, I guess that I did not make my position clear. I do not believe that the 2C overcall is a recorder form. If one writes this hand up in a recorder form, the recorder should throw it away as frivolous. To me, it is bridge. Please note ...
7S puzzle in segment 7
Ginossar/Williken were in 7NT on these cards making with the same heart finesse onside.
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
I held a hand that was similiar to North's holdings without the J of clubs(Jxx x JTxx QT9xx, 3 HCP) recently with the same vulnerability. My RHO opened 1D in 2nd seat after my partner's pass and like the North player in this example overcalled 2C. Suffice ...
