about me

Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

Mentor program morphs to Coaching program
OP here. No data so far, but we're sending out a "how's it going?" email soon and I will report back.
Your Ruling, Please
I was North at this table. As I remember it, East held AKJxxx, no hearts, and a smattering of minor suit HCP. And, as I see it, this increases the likelihood of a spade call. I'm not sure that the director was counting the spades -- only the HCP.
Margaret Devere's bidding problem: AKQT842 JT4 --- AK2

Cheating at Scrabble
Thanks for the reference. Interesting article. I'm an Anagrams player myself. It's a much purer game -- Anagrams to Scrabble is like duplicate bridge to rubber, but even more pure.
How would you rule, and would you request a ruling?
Another case comes to mind: Declarer calls "Jack of spades" but the dummy is out of spades, and has the jack of clubs. Or, more complicated, the dummy does have spades but not the jack. In my experience, the dummy usually speaks up. Sometimes the dummy says "You don't ...
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
I claim an independent creation of "Rodstroth" but yours might be earlier. Mine was maybe 5-8 years ago.
