Slow play survey
I believe the reason for that law is that if a player fails to shuffle his cards and puts them back in the board in the order played, the next player to play the hand can potentially use the information from that order of play to help figure out the ...
Unusual Concept
Our 2NT rebid isn't 20-22. It is 20-21. When we are in first and second seat the 1NT rebid starts at 17 vul, 16 non-vul. Obviously we have to start the 2NT rebid at 20, or the 1NT rebid would be too wide. In third and fourth seat, the ...
Unusual Concept
pretty high I would think.
Should this Pass be alerted?
If the pair would systemically respond with xx xxx xxxx xxxx, then the pass should be alerted as showing some values. Otherwise, what is there to alert?
To tank or not to tank
Of course Chris is correct. I hadn't read carefully enough to see what happened. The director cannot rule that the 4 call is illegal in the middle of the auction. For all anybody knows at that point, West has a 100% clear 4 call on his hand.
To tank or not to tank
Was there UI? There seems to be no question about that. Does the UI suggest pulling the double? Clearly it does. Is passing the double a logical alternative? Marko appears to think that it is not a logical alternative. That is his bridge judgment, to which he is entitled. However ...
Cui Culpa (who's to blame)
Maybe North shouldn't have bid 5, but it certainly wasn't a terrible call and it had one important thing going for it -- North was right! What South was doing bidding 6 I have no idea.
Cui Culpa (who's to blame)
Rainer asked: So how should the bidding have gone if North held the club Ace instead of a small club? How about South passing over 5 and North bidding 6.
Best Line of Play at MP's
It isn't as simple as 3 to 1 odds on which play gains. As we know if you are playing IMPs it is clear to take the safety play. Even though the safety play costs a trick 3 times for every time it gains a trick, the trick cost ...
What's the target?
I wouldn't read much into the 6 of diamonds. Perhaps the opponents are playing UDCA (we weren't told) in which case the 6 would be the "proper" play. Or perhaps East just flipped out a random spot card from a worthless holding.
