What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
A friend of mine told me of bidding to 7 in the Blue Ribbons and being doubled by Frank Stewart(?). He gave it as a play problem and obviously you needed a trump coup or some such as everything else was solid. The doubler had zero, zilch, nada and ...
What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
My wife and I were in South Africa and got 2 mutts from the pound. Hers was a (mostly) Rhodesian Ridgeback and mine a Jack Russell. As yet unnamed we BBQed (err Braiied) up a couple of T-Bones and gave the remains to each of them. Mine scarfed hers down ...
Save Bundy's Sanity

Save Bundy's Sanity

Ethical or not?
Well I can imagine 85 year old Dolly with her spotlight of a lamp and big magnifier glass so just like the rest of bridge always and never do not exist.
You be the judge!
Passing 4 knowing you are safe at the 5-level may not be the best choice but if a significant minority would coupled with the UI and the egregious leap to slam it's a clear rollback imo. As to whether the 4 bidder huddled or the opp asked ...
Weird
If I manage to avoid the opponents leading or bidding out of turn I average a director call about every 4-5 years.
