Lebensohl lucidity
Jump to 4 shows 5 spades and slam interest. Isn't that in your system file yet? :-)
How should the director rule
East has no requirement to bid over 5. East might reasonably treat bidding clubs a 3rd time as natural. Unless you demonstrated that West made a face, I think most Easts would get the message by the 3rd time without any UI. West should have 9 solid clubs screwing ...
One Hand, two plays - Loser on Loser and a Crocodile Coup
Thanks. Blind spot.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: A932 5432 --- JT432
I am going to try to beat a heart contract and suspect a 4 splinter is the way to do it if they bid over 4.
What Does This Bid Mean?
I have alerted playing with some partners. Playing Reverse Flannery, our 2 is artificial, though it's possible I have hearts. The reverse into diamonds will be real in such partnerships. Must have game forcing strength if lacking hearts. 2137 shape possible. This lets me keep other bids pure ...
Opening 1N with a singleton Ace
I need a selection, "I don't open 1N with a Stiff Ace. I have not see the hand yet. King yes, Queen rarely, Ace Jack or small No.
How should the director rule
Ken, you should not have to jump through a whole bunch of backward logic hoops to justify your bidding. I would likely just increase the size of the PP if West tried this.
How should the director rule
I still think "stand in the corner" is needed for West. If they are going to behave like children, they should be punished that way.
ATB
I have found that Chrome can cut off auctions if the screen resolution is less than 100%. There is an indicator in the upper right to reset this.
One Hand, two plays - Loser on Loser and a Crocodile Coup
How is that different from West just playing 3 clubs? I still have the heart end play on East which will require a crocodile Lead to defeat.
