Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making an ill-advised 7 Spades contract. Wish I could find that old hand record. (Update: I found it!) (Or maybe it was that 1!DXX, making 6, at IMP scoring. Opps were chagrined.)

From a bidding box when is a bid final?
I once played the Double card, and an opponent immediately bid. I said, "Wait; I didn't intend my X." The Director, called, advised me that I could only retract a mechanical error. Since the X didn't look like a bid, he was expecting to rule that it would ...
From a bidding box when is a bid final?
For FWIW, I prefer the EBU rule. The ACBL interpretation allows for too much subjectivity. What means "nearly touching the table"? Better to hold the player responsible for his/her bid, as soon as s/he makes the intention to bid clear, even if the exact bid is not seen ...
Redoubling Isn't Rude
Perhaps, but that's an irrelevant comment. This has nothing whatsoever to do with "political correctness". I suggest that you google the term—and those who "liked" your comment would be well advised to do the same.
An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Alan Frank: Me too. The last time a director asked to see my private score, it was because I'd botched a 1NT contract—gone down [i]big[/i], when I could've made overtrix. I handed him my score, saying "It's true."
An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Alain, that's why Ray Yuenger's advice makes so much sense. It allows the Director to investigate the evidence, before any accusations go further.
An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
I see what you did there, John Portwood. Why don't you abide by the BW guidelines, and leave politics out of it already?
Any Way To Tell?
Actuary, my question was in response to Dan's question ("If North bids 3♠ or 3NT over 3♥, how does South know he has more than 4 hearts?"). What I meant was: South must know that North has more than 4 s, because North is showing power, almost certainly at ...
Any Way To Tell?
I'm no expert, butt why would North ever cue 3 with a blah 4- holding?
What are your pet peeves?
If it's constructive criticism from a strong player, I welcome it. Butt even there, there can probably be too much of a good thing.
What are your pet peeves?
Tom: Agreed. Not too long ago, I saw a bunch of college-agers who'd won their Swiss Teams section. They were high-fiving one another. And why not? That is celebration, not gloating.
