Active ethics: A Step too Far?
Louis, The could not lose clause accounts for the level (and mindset) of the player. It seems to me that if they player noted a player show out, and correctly inferred a trump loser, that that player would not lose a trump with normal play.
How do you rule?
ok. Why do you suppose they use 3 to show spades instead of 3? I know my question is rhetorical, but it seems to me that if it's right for your partner to play the hand, nothing has changed. There certainly is an argument for chicken transfers ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
In 10 years, with enough lobbying, perhaps you can get the law changed. A player came up to me in a club game last week as director. She said she revoked, no one noticed, and she wanted to know if she had to report it. There is only one answer ...
How do you rule?
Could be. But I don't see anyone claiming that club players would know what they are doing on 3rd round bids playing multi. Ran into it a lot in MD, not so much in Spokane. I know that club players don't get right 3rd round bids for RKC ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
David, You turned one of my questions into a statement. Please don't do that. It's a question. I don't have the answer. I suggested to you that if you want to address that question, you should start a new article because it's a hard question. You ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
David, Paraphrasing rules: You may not attempt to hide your revoke. So, a scenario where after the hand, you have to decide on fessing up to a revoke... No, not required. You are no more or less ethical whichever way you decide. The implication that following the rules makes you ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
Are you on a different article? I do not recall seeing anything resembling intentionally hiding your cards to prevent revealing your revoke in the text of this article. I suggest you create a different poll if you want the results of your scenario, it's a lot different than the ...
How do you rule?
There is room for disagreement. Sounds like I'd be outvoted 2-1. But I would in fact rule -250 and be outvoted on committee. I don't consider any of Brian's remarks to be throw away. Wonder if it's a Europe vs U.S. thing. Here, a re-transfer ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
David, Active Ethics should not be a badge of honor given to those that ignore the rules in the name of sportsmanship. Active Ethics is correcting a scoring error that the opponents did not notice that costs you an event. Active Ethics is making 100% sure your opponents understand your ...
Elinescu and Wladow win their case against the WBF
just trying to throw out as many ridiculous ideas out as I can in hopes of keeping those Dr's away from bridge. If you come up with an idea that is better, I will rally behind you. But don't even try to ask me to accept defeat on ...
