"You got it wrong."
This hand came up in conversation this week in St. Louis, and it reminded Eddie Wold of a wild hand from years ago. He set it as a problem: The auction goes (1) 1 (P) ? to you. When given as a problem to a group of world champions ...
Board 3 Day 1 Session 1 LM Pairs
I have not read all the above posts carefully, so I may not be the first to say this, but there is a big problem with how UI rulings are performed. Suppose, as in the above case, the spade play is shown to be clearly percentage (I believe it is ...
Board 3 Day 1 Session 1 LM Pairs
I'm certainly below "super expert level" and I passed 3NT in tempo with the North hand.
Take football for example. There are tons of animations and graphics that display routes and blocks and QB lines of sight so a layman like me can follow it. A team of good marketers could do something very similar for a game on guess. Highlighting opening bids, failures to make ...
Lose the Trials Semifinal with Me, VII
Depending on your view on the odds of stiff small offside vs stiff K offside that might be very slightly better than spade to the ace.
How many options would you consider?
Against the double: You don't necessarily find a 4-4 spade fit. Maybe your partner would never bid 3 with a three-card suit, but I once met a player who held: KQJ AKxxx xx xxx and thought 3 was the best call under the ...
Promised lenght in advancer's hand
Dave has his finger on the pulse of modern bidding. Double is 4 spades and 1 is 5+ on that auction. Snapdragon doubles are sort of a relic anyway. They're just played as takeout these days without stringent distribution requirements.
Yes, that's why you need professionals to put together the broadcasts, cutting out the esoteric system details and making it digestible for non-experts. Focus on key bidding decisions--slam or not, which game, whether to compete, high-level deals--and big-swing cardplay situations. In poker they display the percentages of each player ...
As a couple of others have mentioned, the way to get traction for bridge as a spectator game is to have legitimate broadcasts, complete with professional editing and commentary. That would require broadcasts being delayed but who cares? The people who want to track live scores, on Vugraph or sites ...
NT rebids after 1!d - 2!c
After 1-2, I like: 2 = 5+ diamonds, takes priority over showing a major but not over raising clubs 2M = exactly 4-4 or at least 5-6 (2 can be 4=4=3=2 if you open 1 with that shape; I don't) 2NT = 3=3 ...
