This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
Peter Fredin might be right that the winning defence is obvious to a player of his calibre. Unfortunately, Bridge is a game of mistakes and other players sometimes have blind-spots. If opponents divulge that declarer has shown both majors, however, then even an ordinary/tired defender would find the Q ...
This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
The appeal-committee established that East-West had [LIST] [*] No Agreement about Lebensohl. [*] No System-notes, [/LIST] So the committee ruling seems correct, under current law. With a less reputable or a more experienced pair, a cynic might suspect that, although Lebensohl is undiscussed, there might be an [b][i]implicit[/i][/b ...
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
Outside the US, the STOP card protocol goes a long way towards eliminating this problem. During the US trials, there were many strange hesitations. Sometimes they risked providing helpful UI to partner. In an electronic version of the game, the software would be able [LIST][*]to time bids and plays ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
David Carlisle is right: [list] [*] First, find someone, willing to build a proper stable with a door that closes. [*] Only then, try to catch recalcitrant horses. [/list]
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Ed Reppert and Ken Rhodes have it right :) [quote="Pete Seeger"] Put the vandals in court, Say the bells of Newport [/quote]
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL

Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
For decades, Bobby Wolf has held top posts in the ACBL and WBF. [quote="Bobby Wolff"]'...B-H (Becker Hayden) were caught red-handed and tried at the Atlantic City Pair Trials in either 1966 or 1967 and found guilty as charged...'[/quote] [quote="Bobby Wolff"]'...My guess is that I can ...
Your call
Unless other agreements supervene, David Burn seems right. In either context, if an expert player overcalls 2N and, over partner's 3 advance, rebids 4, then the director should adjust and consider a PP. But the director might allow a major rebid, to show the putative fit.
The four Queens Problem.
I addressed Michael's question honestly. I agreed that it's easier to find a successful line, seeing all 4 hands (hinted at, earlier, by my references to [b][i]giraffes[/b][/i] and [b][i]ostriches[/b][/i]). Also, given the actual lead, I admitted that you might play ...
