Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is playing the same boards in a pairs event important?
In all the tournaments I chair, I insist (politely, of course) on Web movements. There is really very little extra work preparing the necessary boards for the Web but there is indeed a danger of directors not putting out the boards correctly (yes, I was a victim of the Wernher ...
Critique This Auction with Satan
I was responder and I guess you could say I was "slam curious" up to a point. I tried to show the two suits but really wasn't sure if Satan could pass 4 or 5 after he bid 4 and I had bid all I thought ...
Critique This Auction with Satan
Interesting. It seems though at this point, some key card ask/sequence is off the table?
Critique This Auction with Satan
I wan't "compalining" or particularly unhappy. I understood what Satan was thinking (which might be frightening) even if I don't agree. I was interested in good agreements for these high level auctions and the comments here have been very good toward that end.
Critique This Auction with Satan
Of course, I might have had the spade Q, and it might have been finessable if I did not have it. It definitely was matchpoints. I don't agree that I bid it "like I was 5-4." There isn't a lot of room to show 6-4 without agreements. I ...
Critique This Auction with Satan
Good point and one of the topics I thought might be discussed. It occurred to me during the auction that if I had hearts and diamonds opposite Satan's hand, I might create a problem. My thought was that 4 would then set hearts and anything else sets diamonds ...
Critique This Auction with Satan
My thinking, rightly or wrongly, as Satan's partner was that since the Kokish sequence also had made me declarer in spades after we had forced to game, that 3N should certainly deny 3 spades as there is no way now to set Satan up as declarer in spades. Since ...
Alexander Allen's bidding problem: --- x Kxx QJT98xxxx
I voted for PASS with some reservations. Without West's double of 4, and ignoring any inferences from Namyatsian type arguments (if NS play NAMYATS), it would be very easy for me to PASS after I bid the preemptive 3 (not that I would bid that with South ...
No more sit outs at our bridge club!
Well done. I am sure you will find that your players much prefer the robots to sitting out. Players at the Bridge Club of Center City (Philadelphia) have been using robots at half tables for about a year. Mike Giesler (District 4 Technology Chair), David Rose (Center City Bridge Club ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Excellent suggestion. When I suggest helping with the filing of a memo with a Flight B player for pair 2, they usually shrug and say forget it. One player however, not only filed a memo, but wrote to ACBL Ruling Desk (or something like that) and got a response that ...
