Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Art, in the new Appeals procedures, the TD who was formerly called the "Screening Director" is now called the Reviewer. The Reviewer begins the review from the position that the Director ruled correctly; the appellants have to present evidence that there are aspects to the case that were not given ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
With thirteen top tricks in notrump, I would assume it would not make much difference in IMP scoring between going down one or two. Especially in a six board Swiss match.
Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
What he held has nothing to do with whether the bid is alertable or not. If the agreement is alertable, the alert is required. I could have forgotten my agreement and bid based upon the agreement I have with another partner, only to realize after partner has called that our ...
Should this bid be reported to the director ?
Tactical bid, not even something requiring a director call.
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
I guess I'm in the middle of your description. For me, 2 shows six in the suit, and less than 16 HCP (would jump to 3 with 16+), 2 shows extra values (15+) and at least four Spades in the suit. 2NT shows balanced hand with ...
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
Of a similar vein is the auction 1 - 2 - 2NT. Do you play 2NT as a minimum or extras? I play it as extras, showing slam interest, with a jump to 3NT showing a basic opening hand (12-14 HCP), balanced with five hearts. Other partnerships reverse this. It ...
Debbie Rosenberg's lead problem: 94 743 JT2 T9742
Assuming a 15-17 NT opening, partner has between 8-12 HCP, and had the opportunity to ask for a club lead if he wanted one (he could have doubled 2 to suggest the lead). Since the only tricks we are likely to get are coming out of his hand, I ...
Bidding philosophy
As I play Min/Max Michaels, I bid 2. If partner asks what I was thinking, I tell him I had an Ace and King more than I promised.
What does partner's tank suggest?
My thought as well. Accepting a transfer after interference is how you are supposed to show three card support and good values, which is what you have here. I don't understand passing, as the hand doesn't have godd enough clubs to qualify for a trap pass.
Defense From the Bermuda Bowl
If East attacks Spades immediately, it would not do well, but how many players do you know that would lead a Spade from QJx on the fly? Most will lead a diamond honor, and following a discouraging signal from West, switch to a round suit. That allows North to start ...
