Free Shot?
I do not understand what this entire discussion is about. N-S did not receive MI about the enemy hands. The laws very specifically say that a player may draw inferences from his opponents mannerisms, but he does so at his own risk. What if East has played in normal tempo ...
Draw the Line
No, I don't. Perhaps it is theoretically correct to do so. I fully admit that our entire structure is totally geared towards IMPs. We simply find that as a practical matter it isn't worth changing things for matchpoints.
Draw the Line
No, I didn't misinterpret your response. And I agree with everything you said. Those are all valid reasons for not opening multi. I was simply giving equally valid reasons to open multi. As to which reasons have priority, that we could debate endlessly and still come to no clear ...
The opening leads (part 3)
All I can say is use your best judgment. We are trying to see which decisions are clear with or without the information and which decisions are murky.
The Worst Agreements in Bridge
Michael, In my world, 4NT is *never* RKC for clubs. If nothing lower is available, then we just don't have an RKC call. 1 keycard often isn't enough so RKC won't work regardless of the responding structure. I would rather have 4NT simply being a last train ...
The Worst Agreements in Bridge
Alvin, Suppose hearts are trump, and 4NT is the RKC call. If partner responds 5, you don't have room to ask for the queen of trumps below 5. Since you are more likely to want to ask for the queen when partner has 1 keycard than when ...
Hesitation Issue - How Would You Rule?
Jay, What you say is fine if is clear that it is a totally off the wall bid that no one would ever consider. The problem is that one player's off the wall bid is another player's correct action. If I held the West hand on this auction ...

N-S keep their result. The laws clearly state that you draw inferences from the opponents mannerisms at your own risk. Declarer (rather stupidly IMO -- anyone who thinks of the falsecard from J9xx isn't going to huddle before making the play) took such an inference and was wrong. Whether or ...
Draw the Line
Why open multi rather than pass? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. 1) You might get to a 4 game you wouldn't have reached otherwise. 2) You might find a good save in 4 against 4 you wouldn't have found ...
