Your comment would have been rude had this been one of his worst rulings. It was not.
Great Grand Slam auction in the Transnational playoff in Lyon
Opener had the j so it had some play, but obviously if you worked out openers entire hand, you'd pass (even if someone told you opener had the j). There is enough "evidence" to work it out, but even if given as a problem it's fairly easy to ...
Great Grand Slam auction in the Transnational playoff in Lyon
True, but given the range of hands partner may have for the 6 bid (6th spade, k or 5134), I'd say that accepting the grand slam invite is the percentage action. If he has the worst possible hand (5125 no k), then you just hope for the break ...
Great Grand Slam auction in the Transnational playoff in Lyon
If you are reading this David, I've a question for you. Your hand was kqxxx x axx akxx, but on the auction it could have as easily been kqxxx x ax akxxx. Would you still have found a pass over 7 had it been kqxxx x ax akxxx ...
Great Grand Slam auction in the Transnational playoff in Lyon
Not quite, they would have been +2140 and +100, for a +2240 total, 2240 is the last number you gain "only" 19 imps for. Since they won 17, and this way would have won 19, the bermuda bowl would have ended in a tie, and the tiebreaker would have gone ...
EBC Mixed Teams 6 QF - Assess the blame
It would seem that in bridge the only thing that happens more often than getting lucky if you are fond of bidding is people who aren't so fond telling you just how lucky you got.
1!s or 2!c
When it's right to bid on a 6-5 AAK monster, the story doesn't get past the bar that evening. When it's wrong, people remember it 90 years later. Sounds about right.
Toni Mestrovic's bidding problem: AT4 A95 K8 AQ873
I'd merrily do it without the queen of clubs, or if the diamond king was the jack. It would take a glass of wine or good mood to do it on less (thankfully one of the two is often present). As for the other two questions, I was by ...
Toni Mestrovic's bidding problem: AT4 A95 K8 AQ873
And I thought all there was to the problem was written to the right of the diagram, but here you go bringing science into the picture. Serves me right for having opened the "How would you bid the hands playing with yourself" can of worms.
Toni Mestrovic's bidding problem: AT4 A95 K8 AQ873
Having played a couple of deals with you both as a partner and teammate, I will not ask you what you feel your partner would do in this particular spot with say xx KQJ10xxx Qx KJ, but rather what you would do? I imagine I could be convinced that you ...
