Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
Nick: No :) That was Magnus Lindkvist, but they won the tournament anyway. And yes we felt that we should have made a protest in some way, but that would also mean that we could not concentratate on playing on in the tournament, so we accepted the unfairness. The system was ...
Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
The advantage of a strong pass system is for sure that hands with 8-12 is more frequent. In the 90's, when I played with Björn Fallenius in the Swedish team, we designed "Minimajor" where 1Ma showed 8-13 with at least 3 cards, 1D 14+ with at least 3S and ...

My four is 1) Peter did push the tray wrongly some times. Chip says only once against him. I believe Chip. This does really dont matter in the case. 2) Peter said Chip called the director after the board was played. Chip does not oppose, so I believe Peter. It ...
Once accused for cheating then I got cheated
Michael - as I have read your comments before, you think that Peter deserved the penalty for pushing the tray. Your point 4. above sounds like you also believe that there was some UI or signal involved in the "fast push". Do you really believe that? Or rather, do you really ...
