KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
"If I wanted to spar for no points, I wouldn't have traveled to a tournament to pay entry fees." You've already won the points. You're up a huge amount at the half and the opponents do not believe they can win. If you play the second half ...
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I think the "didn't the opponents come to play?" line of argument is a weak one. Nothing is barring the team from continuing to play if the opponents concede. Aren't there still tables and cards and bidding boxes in the playing area? If so, you can play against ...
Mike Cailean's bidding problem: AKJ Kxxx KTxxx x
Useful to be playing some form of Good-Bad 2NT. Without that agreement, the big vote for 3 on this hand is a good reason to pass when you have a so-so balanced minimum on this auction.

Hear, hear!
ATB - Languished in 4 diamonds when slam was almost cold
To each his own, but 1 - 1 - 2 isn't a reverse, even if it shows just 16 HCP.
Winston Chang's bidding problem: K2 A954 64 JT432
I think your selective quoting of my comment takes it out of context and inaccurately suggests it is not germane to the discussion. The issue of whether or not 2 is natural arises when opener passes, as well as when he doubles. When he passes is a more pure ...
Winston Chang's bidding problem: K2 A954 64 JT432
The difference could be several hundred total points if 2 is down a couple and 2 makes (probably not on this auction, since East doubled, but if West passes, you could go down many hundred while 2 makes). Plus, I could counter with: I don't care ...
Winston Chang's bidding problem: K2 A954 64 JT432
2 should be natural on this auction. 2 is available as a cuebid, and if 2 is artificial then a hand with long diamonds (a very plausible hand-type) is stuck. Even if East passes (so the opponents' purporting to have 7+ hearts doesn't confuse the issue ...
ATB - Languished in 4 diamonds when slam was almost cold
I suspect a minimum with long diamonds opens something else, probably 2.
Can you play 4S better than I did?
The problem with East's J being a falsecard is it's far more likely to catch West than South. Some players actually believe their partners' signals...
