Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

- How would you rule?
- No. When the ECHR entered UK law (in the form of the Human Rights Act), all forms of capital punishment ended.
- Is 4333 a semi-balanced distribution?

The only statements approaching definitions of "balanced" and "semi-balanced" in the Blue Book are buried in two rules: 7E2 relates to defences to low level opening bids "Any bid which shows a semi-balanced hand (i.e. with no singleton, void or ...
- Is there a sound mathematical basis for this?

- Is there a sound mathematical basis for this?
- The answer to the question "Given West has 11 unknown cards and East has 13, what is the probability East has both ♥ A and ♠ K given he has at least one" is 6/17 (i.e. 12/34) not 12/23. Proof: Call ♥ A and ♠ K ...

- Tarzan Precision does (or at least did) use this too.

- The (English) standard when playing MUD is to lead 2nd highest from xxxx and continue with 3rd highest (i.e. MUD once you have xxx left). With 5 small one leads 2nd highest and continues with the smallest.
