How should the director rule
The critical question seems to be whether, once partner has done something (UI) that makes you realize you have made a bidding error, you must totally ignore the evidence from the subsequent auction (AI) that makes clear that you made an error. Given my view, stated elsewhere at length, that ...
How should the director rule
Ed: I understand your point, and don't think we disagree. When not behind screens, I consider what I would do if I were. I do also consider whether there are logical alternatives to what I would do, given that I have the UI, i.e., whether in fact I ...
How should the director rule
I find these types of situations very difficult. When I have forgotten an agreement, and my partner's alert (or failure to alert) wakes me up, I try to figure out what I'd do if I were behind screens, and act accordingly. I recognize that one might receive different ...
How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
I am in the camp that prefers that bidding past 2 of one's original suit shows extras (could be shape extras, e.g. 5=6), but I play it both ways with different partners. I would propose an auction such as 1H-2D-2H-3C-3S-4C-4S-6C. While there is ambiguity about opener's ...
Improve my Guess
Go up queen. Otherwise, awful lot of bidding at these colors by LHO on only QJ,QJ,J(?), plus RHO might have opened with a 3=3=2=5 11 count (albeit 8 losers). Awful lot of bidding by South, too, given a willingness to pass 5D.
2 parter
Michael: Thanks so much for your explanation! Very helpful.
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
My partners and I alert that opener has an unbalanced hand.
2 parter
Michael: you have exposed a(nother) gap in my bridge knowledge. I was unaware that "scramble" was a thing different from (and apparently the opposite of) a lebensohl-type approach where bidding directly showed constructive values, and going through 2NT showed the weak hand. Obviously, the assumption behind my comments was ...
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
It is possible that the director at the time got it wrong, but as you can tell, all these years later, I am not bitter.
2 parter
I believe this is a slam try, else 4NT as COG. I might have bid 2S after the double. Partner would know I have very few points, since I didn't make a negative double. I disagree with those who say that I "promise" 4+ spades. If I had a ...
