Trick 12 Decision
Kit, That’s a valuable general rule about it being okay to win the A slowly, but this hand is a rare exception! It would obviously be mandatory to win from ATx, so if East won the ace slowly from Axx, declarer would get it right. A near-equivalent situation arose ...
Three Recent Deals
Actually, on #2, once the heart distribution is revealed, there simply isn’t any normal hand for declarer to have. Q ATx AJ9xx T9xx is the closest, and that’s a pretty horrid opening bid! So maybe Ron actually worked out that this hand was likely. He might have been ...
Tie breaking in USBC KO matches
Hi, I’m glad to see Peter bring this up. I strongly support tiebreaking rather than overtime, for all the reasons already mentioned. Any long match that ends in single digits is essentially a coin flip anyway. (I have also long thought overtime is too long in many sports such ...
Implications of the missing board 16
Following the US team trials (USBC) which has had 15-board segments for quite a while.
GNT Format in District 25 (New England)
“BAM movement”=”movement most commonly seen in BAM events”. Not a crazy usage to me at all, and not suggestive of confusion of scoring vs. movement. To be a little more careful one could say “BAM-style movement.”
GNT Format in District 25 (New England)
Sounds to me like if #1 has more carryover against #3 than #4, they still have a choice. It’s not an easy call but I don’t think I favor the rule change. Let the RR winner set the bracket how they like. I generally *am* in favor of ...
GNT Format in District 25 (New England)
I agree, it's a good format. D13 (Chicago-Milwaukee) does something very similar. And incidentally, 10 teams is amazing! partly thanks to separate weekend from Flight A, I guess.
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
For completeness, if anyone if still reading, the K is also fatal if North started with KQxxx QJxx xx Jx, and his pitches are certainly consistent with that.
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
Incidentally, I think Jake did make the percentage play in the ending, but it’s kind of close, because he’s a favorite to survive cashing K even when South has A. For simplicity I’m assuming he knows the shapes. His play, K, is very simple: succeeds 100% if ...
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
On Board 22, it was actually excellent *partnership* defense. Michael was careful to come down to 1 club and 4 hearts at the end. If South kept another club, it would have been safe for Jake to try the K before committing himself. But that would be fatal if Michael ...
