Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
I thought that passing the double and then bidding 3 after say, 2 says exactly that
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
West has no UI so I guess they can, foolish though it would be but as east I'm bidding to 3, folding my cards and putting them in my pocket having never made an encouraging move such as a direct 3 bid that may have been suggested ...
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
I agree with MK and with no hitch would pass now and intend to bid 3 to play next depending on developments. I'm never going higher or lower (if partner bids 3, I'm passing) and would need a touch more shape to bid directly. Especially white ...

Greater Boston Industrial League
I'm playing in the Canadian Bridge Federation Online Championships for the first time this year and the CoC is available at under competitions. 14 teams in the open this year, it has worked since 2015 and may well be gathering steam. Better yet we are playing for ...
UI in San Diego?
Yeah, we've seen the south hand now but not north who would need clear cut justification for the 3 bid AND the pass of 3. I can't imagine a north hand that wasn't a 3nt or 4 bid (or a pass of 2 ...
Strange goings-on
I vaguely recall reading about Dorothy Truscott calling the Director early in a round and saying she had played these hands before. When he scoffed at the idea she described all the unseen hands and it was the same set of hands from a tournament in the fairly distant past.
