True North American Championships Coming
Until we can build that 40,000ft wall along the eastern seaboard, this will have to do.
Polly Siegel's lead problem: Jxx x Axxx AJxxx
I'm dying to know what the whole hand was.
Flin Flon 2: The North Remembers
Alas, the 4 was not on Greg's head during the drunk Swiss, it was during the two-session open pairs on Saturday. And we were both sober. I will note that I was impressed that he remembered to play that card from his head at the appropriate time.
Road to Victory?
I hate popcorn, but if you were to create videos recapping all the hands you've EVER played together, I would buy a year's supply of popcorn and quit my job.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: --- T962 KQ532 K742
I don't think pass is easy. I was tempted to do it, but I feel compelled to give partner the benefit of the doubt that the could have a "bridge" reason for bidding the way they do. Perhaps they chose to bid a control-heavy 6233 20-count this way. I ...
Ankur Rathi's bidding problem: Qx AJx AKQJ9x xx
I feel pretty strongly that whether pass is forcing is a matter of taste and partnership understanding. My taste here is that pass IS forcing. Partner is not racing to compete to 4m rvw with minimal values. Their X of 3 creates a game force (unless 3X becomes ...
Green Ribbon Pairs? (ACBL)
It seems so elegant to have the IMP pairs start a day after the Plats; it can't possibly just be an oversight. The schedule was obviously constructed that way intentionally. I believe the intended purpose is to preserve the toughness of the field in the Platinum Pairs. Starting the ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: Q97 --- 97642 AQJT5
Well crap. I suppose I'll swallow my pride, and leave my mistake in full view, but I'll also stick with my vote for pass.
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: Q97 --- 97642 AQJT5
Yep, still a 9-count with only 3 spades. I don't hate double, but I don't NEED to do it. Just because the auction is weird doesn't mean that 4 isn't making. I can't imagine a hand partner could have where she didn't bid ...
Inappropriate remark (UI) - how would you rule and why
But North is allowed to know that West has SHOWN spades here. Absolutely South should be educated on the importance of not making remarks like that, but I think North, (knowing that West has spades) is allowed to bid 4H as a hedge against the possibility that South (who also ...
