Marc Zwerling's bidding problem: 72 A972 AKQ62 J5
Hendrik Here there seems little question that North's balk communicated unauthorized information to her partner and that the unauthorized information suggested South bid 4H on her second opportunity. Assuming you agree, the proper ruling appears to hinge on the two questions That follow: First, as applied to this rather ...
Marc Zwerling's bidding problem: 72 A972 AKQ62 J5
Hendrik I agree with your comment about the 3S bid. Also, once the hesitators partner bid 4H, I am critical of overcallers failure to bid 4S. With those acknowledgement, what impact if any do you think those bidding decisions should have had on the ruling?
Marc Zwerling's bidding problem: 72 A972 AKQ62 J5
Thanks for your thoughts. Here's the rest of the story. The Director allowed the bid after consulting the other available Directos including one of our leading national Directors. The reason given was that bidding 4H was clear notwithstanding the fact that South bid 3H only at her first opportunity ...
Marc Zwerling's bidding problem: 72 A972 AKQ62 J5
Yes, you are correct. The initial hand given is South's. She bid 4H the second time around. The issue is should the Director allow the 4H bid to stand. I am sorry I didn't make this clearer in the post.
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Michael, I don’t plan to revisit all of Jonathan’s comments but here is one example: In an August 19 post about Mark, Jonathan commented to describe what he claimed were “very clear” facts “even if not published and no hearing has been held” and then characterized Mark’s ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
McKenzie, you have perceptively smoked out that there is more to Wolfe's story. So here it is: Less that an hour after incident Wolfe reported, he and I had a second interaction with Mark. This one demonstrated both Mark's unusual respect for the game and his kindness. Going ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Jonathan, Generally, I take no issue with people being skeptical. I just wish you had been more skeptical of all the false factual claims you posted about this case based on undisclosed, biased sources. All the while you knew that this matter was being aggressively pursued and all sides would ...
A new (?) idea for 2N
Phil, Actually, what I suggest - and have played with good success for quite a while - is to have all 3 level bids show specific, good 2 suiters along the lines of Pin Point Astro [3H shows majors and 3S S and D; With the blacks, we couble 1N [a 1 ...
A new (?) idea for 2N
Phil, Your desire to be able to show a good 2 suiter immediately over 1N is understandable. But why are you exclusively focused on the majors? Let's say you rearranged the hand you gave to xx, AJ9xx, AQxxxx and void. That's a likely game opposite a hand with ...
Chris Gibson's bidding problem: KQ85 AKQ4 --- QT986
Whatever partnership meaning 3D has, surely it sets S as trump. {If not, then perhaps a system change is indicated]. If over 3D partner signs off in 3S, I can continue with 4D. Again, whatever partner thinks about this, he or she will know that I lack a C control ...
