PENALTY OR TAKEOUT? DIRECT/INDIRECT SEAT
Phyllis, voters can choose only one option of the four. You want two answers. The set of offered options that will work is something like: 1. Penalty in both situations. 2. Penalty only in the first situation. 3. Penalty only in the second situation. 4. Not Penalty in either situation.
The future of bridge and technology
People don't look at a Bridge game the same way as they do an exam. It is safe to assume that people do not (and will not) use technology to cheat in Club games. "I stand by my initial statement that it is a huge detriment towards getting people ...
WBF Declares Co-Champions in Open and Women's Pairs
Dura lex sed lex - the CoC is harsh but it is the law. Doesn't this imply that the results, as initially announced, stand?
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
I like the concept, but staring at the edge of the partition would freak me out. I'm not able to describe this.. too "in your face"? I would keep shifting my chair to the left or right, and getting up after every hand.
Humorous Bridge Happenings You’ve Experienced
At the club (I was directing), I was called to a table after the opening lead - 12 cards in dummy, 14 with declarer - "Didn't you count your cards before you started bidding?" I asked the declarer in my sternest voice. "I did, honestly! I only had 12!" she replied.
Poetic Justice
Exposed-card penalties can be far more damaging than revoke penalties, as has been discussed in previous threads. Then, isn't it unfair if an opponent asks me to "check again"? No, I'm not accusing Gavin of shady ethics, just something to think about for the law makers.
NARASIMHAN WINS WOMEN'S TRIAL, BECOMES USA1, 212-198
Entering a deal into the pbn format is quite easy. You can use the Dealer4 software (for example) to then convert the .pbn file to a .dup file.
Director Call
What was the auction? (Maybe West bid diamonds at some stage and once East produced the A, declarer placed the K with West, and was genuinely trying to save time..)
Break in Tempo Ruling
What I mean is, they have the points, so it looks like they don't play the same ranges for overcalls/ dbl-and-new-suit that the majority do. BITs bother me when they stretch. South wasn't stretching - when partner invites a game with 10, I'll accept with 18. North seems ...
Break in Tempo Ruling
So they sweated their way to their 28-point, 5-3 fit Major game. I'm not even calling the director back.
