Board 8, Zimmermann Cup quarterfinal
I have only seen a few videos but the top players seem to have their own version of the screen regulations that bear no relation to the EBL regulations in place. Hardly anything is written down, it is spoken. Alerts are all finger pointing and waving of the card as ...
Paul Gipson's bidding problem: 854 975 A6 JT876
This was from the second round of the Zimmermann Cup. The board was flat as both Geir Helgemo and Andrew Mcintosh bid 5, down two for -200. Four spades doubled was an easy make this time and the contract at 26 tables, with 5 bid ten times. I ...
Fail to alert, the ruling and what wold you have bid?
The first thing the director is going to do, as the lack of alert was noted prior to the opening lead, is ask West whether they want to withdraw their pass and make a different call. This would seem to remove the need for your question, but I would have ...
3-way KO match
In the UK, this can occur in two events that I play in (SBU Winter Foursomes and EBU Spring Foursomes). The EBU White Book has all the details but it is subtly different to the ACBL. The teams are ranked based on the number of wins, a draw counting as ...
Who Will Win the English Open Trials?
The EBU website is a little parochial and it is easier to navigate if you are a frequent visitor, as I guess most are. However it is worth noting the difficulty that a tech-savvy irregular visitor has: although I think the link on the front page originally went to the ...
Can I pass? or not?
Where is the world can 6 be a slam try by a hand that passed 5, which could well have ended the auction. So it should be clear to everyone that partner has forgotten the convention. As others have said, you also have no UI, but the AI ...
A Small Taste of Open Bridge: The 2018 Camrose
I missed most of the Camrose because we were running a training weekend for the juniors, although there were many howls from the other side of the room as helpers wandered off to check the current score. One of the U16s brought a book that her non-bridge playing grandma had ...
Theatre of Absurd Revisited
Theatre of Absurd Revisited
Tom, apparently the BBO operator could tell the Scottish players apart but they played this board the wrong way around. So the rest of the set was correct.
Theatre of Absurd Revisited
The Scottish North bid 5 in an attempt to get his partner to play the hand. Continuing with 7 would have been excellent, but the meaning of such bids are always clearer to those holding the hand and less so to CHO, especially in a partnership where you ...
