I totally agree about Maury. Of all the directors I have known, which includes some top-notch directors, he was the best. He knew the rules solid, and was never afraid to make the proper ruling. Here is my Maury story: In 1982, my team played in the Rosenblum cup in ...
The Missing Trump
In addition to the quite meaningful psychological damage you mention, there is also the mental strain and diversion involved. You would have to calculate the chances of the risky play working and making the overtrick, and the chances of it losing the contract. You would also have to estimate the ...
The Missing Trump
I dislike Bergen raises, since the 3 and 3 call give the opponents a chance to make a lead-directing double (or not double, which gives the opening leader the negative inference that partner didn't have a double). In my opinion, the cost of this outweighs any gains ...
Oh come on, Oren. I've been playing Puppet Stayman (2 over 1NT) for 40 years. Surely I must have had one or two system wins. Actually, we had a system win on the very first hand we ever played Puppet. Steve Robinson suggested it to me on the ...
Neopolitan Club: Interview with FN Lawyer.
Sorry, I still don't see it. Suppose I present you with the data, and ask you to form a conclusion. I will tell you that the reason for this hypothesis is from a letter from Maaijke. But I don't know how many hands she looked at before she ...
Neopolitan Club: Interview with FN Lawyer.
I don't know how many hands she looked at before coming up with her theory. Probably not that many. I don't see why it really matters. Even if she had looked at every hand they had played before presenting her theory, the facts wouldn't be any different.
How should the laws handle "convention disruption"?
My pass was not an unintentional error. I fully knew that I was passing at the point I passed. What I had temporarily forgotten was that the pass showed spades, as opposed to it being a non-committal call which didn't show anything. At the time I passed, that was ...
Neopolitan Club: Interview with FN Lawyer.
What Greg says is quite correct.
How should the laws handle "convention disruption"?
Aviv, I would never claim I had made a mechanical error when I knew that wasn't the case. I did realize my mistake almost instantly, but it was a slip of the mind not a mechanical error. Yes, as you say the result of scenario D is equivalent to ...
Competing for partscore after opener's 1NT opening
We play all non-jump 2NT calls in competition are not natural, so this would not be a problem for us. If this is not available, I believe you have to close your eyes and bid 3. Partner should know you are just competing, since with an invitational hand you ...
