A Robot Compromise
Less boards to determine who has true skill playing an oddly tilted game, different from live bridge. And guarantees you never have to show the skill of deciding when to take an action with a weak hand.
A Robot Compromise
I don't see why there should be any guarantee about points in your hand. Just make it so you play declarer any time your side is on offence, and use random deals. Way less gaming involved, and you should have equal chance of being on defence.
ATB
No competent player, let alone an expert, should ever lead K from Kx against a slam unless partner had previously signalled for a spade lead in the bidding. You lead something else and wait for declarer to finesse into your K. So west should know with certainty that east led ...
Laws interpretation
A 10 second pause is hardly a reason to hang declarer. Even in a live game, declarer should be allowed a pause to let the opponents see his hand and gather his thoughts. And playing online, 10s could be the result of internet speed anyway. Plus it takes a few ...
Take a risk for vul game or double for a certain positive score?
I like the idea of 4 as power raise, but wouldn't assume partner will interpret correctly if undiscussed. Whatever the unfortunate result of the actual hand, I think the odds are against what actually happened - no reason to play for east having only one honor in his two ...
Half‑Baked?
I have played with many people whose bids show half a suit! :)
Should Michaels require an alert?
So I was told by a National; TD after an opponent did this and I called the director to find out if it should have been alerted. Your mileage may vary.
Should Michaels require an alert?
IMO, if it isn't natural and it isn't Staymen or Blackwood, it ougt to be an alert. But that is not what the ACBL rules say. You can solve any UI problems if you just ask what all cue bids mean, all the time. BTW, it also isn ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: --- AKx KQJxx A9xxx
3 shows a hand too strong to accept a signoff with diamonds for me (3 would be similar with hearts). If pard bids 3 over 3, I will bid 4, showing a two suiter in minors. If she bids 4 over 3, I ...
Jacoby 2NT?
Still Jacoby and GF - specifically shows a hand that has upvalued to GF strength due to strong fit and useful shortness i.e. p-p-1-p-2NT you hold 4 spades, a singleton or void in another suit, and 10+ prime points (say Ax(xx) in one suit and AQx(x) in ...
