Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Frivolous play ruling
I have no idea. Probably some sort of weighted adjusted score but your guess is as good as mine. All this was fortunately inconsequential because the scores of matches in IMP-s were converted to VP-s and the change didn't affect the standings at all (North-South finished second with no ...
Frivolous play ruling
L73 in my post was a typo, I meant L72, sorry about that.
Frivolous play ruling
40B.2(v). only allows the Regulating Authority to "restrict the use of psychic artificial calls." And the 7NT call cannot, by definition, be artificial. So even in the ACB- land we couldn't use this law to justify the score adjustment.
Frivolous play ruling
The main problem with L72 is that in order to use it as the basis of score adjustment we would have to claim that West somehow broke it and I would say that it is pretty tough to break a law that begins with words "The chief object is..." (its ...
Frivolous play ruling
A small correction: North - South are current U13 European champions, not U16. They are 11 and 12 years old, respectively, There is no large age gap between the players at the table if that matters.
Grand Slam missing the Ace of Trumps - ATB or just Bridge?
At at least one table South tried 4NT and discovered one key card missing, but could be the ♦K, so made one more try for 7. North thinking all the key cards where there bid 7 based in the source of tricks from the spade suit." The Polish pair Gawrys ...
Wan Li Unplugged
"There is a Polish movie. About a card sharp. At one moment he's saying: - I've cheated, you've cheated, the better has won." You ruined the quote by omitting the best part. It went: "The game was fair. You cheated, I cheated, the better won".
Bidding systems without forcing opening bid
My entire team played like this for several years. It's no contest. As long as you have some forcing opening for very strong balanced hands (in the 2♦︎ multi for instance) then the pros outweigh the cons massively. For instance if you play that 2♣︎ shows 6-10 with 5 ...
The real reason Bridge is on the decline
" most social trends originate in North America ( attitudes toward women and minorities), etc." New attitude toward women and minorities as "originating in North America" is one of the most hilarious things I have read in quite a long time. Poland gave equal rights to women (including voting rights) in 1918 ...
Methods when last train is doubled
"Note that the X gives you options to show some life without going past 4M, which you wouldn't be able to do without it." I'm not sure this particular aspect is relevant. Since we started cue-bidding we already expressed some (at least mild) slam interest. Once the major ...
