KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I find the arguments against withdrawing totally unconvincing. If a team is getting blown out, and wishes to withdraw, what's the problem. They can play if they wish, withdraw if they wish. Who am I to care?
Steve Stewart's bidding problem: AJT842 J9 KQ84 7
I double to maximize any plus. I doubt that it will affect my match point score if they make it.
Neil Silverman's bidding problem: 73 87 943 AT8754
Not in my neighborhood.
Mark Jones's lead problem: JT4 53 AQ9752 K6
For those keeping score at home, a diamond is the winner. Partner is void. He figured you would not lead a diamond with the NT being bid on my right.
Mark Jones's lead problem: AJ87 65 84 97543
I reposted with the result so people can see what works- not that one hand proves anything. I was surprised that more people did not comment on the failure to bid 4S. Only you and two others mentioned it.
Mark Jones's lead problem: AJ87 65 84 97543
North is on lead.
Mark Jones's lead problem: AJ87 65 84 97543
I agree.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: AKT8432 --- 2 A9732
Looks to me to be way to good to open 4. Agree with Jack.
Mark Jones's bidding problem: T8 JT854 6 JT643
The problem presented to the panelists came later in the auction, but you had the subsequent issue only if you passed here. It is Problem A in the January 2016 Bridge World.
Would you fill out a recorder form?
