Director Ruling on Mis-Information
@Jeff, let me explain why I believe the other auction is so relevant. The directors said they asked your teammate what he would have bid if the auction had gone 1H (1N) 2H. He said 4H. Think about that for a minute. The same high cards are sitting over your ...
Director Ruling on Mis-Information
Kevin, My view is somewhat in between but I wanted to get your opinion on a few questions about polling that may be contributing to the disconnect. In this type of situation where there is decision that works out poorly subsequent to an infraction, and intuition says that the infraction ...
How to play the trump suit

Should I have called the TD?

Sophomore Blues
In the tech world over 20+ years I became pretty competent. At bridge I am starting again from the beginning. I was reminded today of how far I have to go at bridge: - twice when 3N seemed possible (I will admit it seemed like a stretch both times, but who ...
Sophomore Blues
Thanks Nat.
Sophomore Blues
One of our opponents told me at the beginning of the round that they are intimidated when playing against me and Debbie due to Debbie's skill. I told them that in a few years I thought they would then be intimidated by playing against Olivia!
