Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Chris, Thanks for laying this out so clearly, especially the false analogy to criminal justice, and bridge as a privilege rather than a right. I agree completely about this. If I remember right, you pointed out a few years ago that the analogy is poor when it comes to burden ...
Missing Aces and Micro-Moysians
That was assuming hearts 8-1. I would also worry about hearts being 7-2. Then you would need East to have spade KQ and read the position.
Missing Aces and Micro-Moysians
On the first hand, I don’t think you need East to have KQ of spades. Run all the trumps keeping 1 spade and 3 clubs in dummy. If he keeps 3 clubs, cash A and duck a club. Otherwise duck a club. The J is a red herring.
Road to the GNT Final Four, R8 Q4
The club combination on the second board is pretty cool… I don’t have time to write it up today but maybe someone will.
Report on Vote on Tie-breaking & follow up vote
Eric, this is the same as a .5-imp carryover from the round robin. Does it make it more palatable to put it that way? The Bermuda Bowl has had much more substantial carryovers in many iterations of their CoC, so I would think a .5-imp carryover is reasonable.
Road to the GNT Final Four R8 Q2
On #28, 7NT is a small bit better than 7 because you can always test the diamonds while you still have a club entry (though it has a losing case also, when South has a small stiff diamond and at most 2 trumps.) If partner had xx or x ...
Overtricks at Imps
Kit Woolsey’s comment on this thread is by far the most instructive. Distinguishing a 5-10% risk from a 20% risk is hard work, you’ll do it wrong sometimes, and when you do it right you’ve spent a lot of mental energy for a very small expected gain ...
Jonathan Weinstein's lead problem: T4 QT J643 J9632
Yeah I thought so too. Cost a regional event unfortunately, in the last round of a Swiss. Just needed some reassurance. FWIW lefty did not have the slam try the auction seemed to indicate… she had barely enough to bid game, and it so happened righty had AKJxxx and ...
Thank you Richard Pavlicek!
The principle is that at the "phantom table" where the board wasn't played, the result would have been equally likely to be any of the actual results *including yours*. So 1/17 of the time you would push against a phantom clone of yourselves, hence you were (1/17 ...
If you play professionally
I think the 1994 champs fit this description? Great story. That was right after I joined ACBL, I think I read about it in the first bulletin I ever got.
