Who Will Direct the Directors?
Richard and Steve - wholly agree. Only additional comment I would make is that even if a partnership doesn't have a formal agreement to do something, should it happen more than very rarely, then it really is an understanding. So, that should be disclosed, too. I understand sometimes we can ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Steve, I am someone who still thinks the ACBL took a wrong turn when committees were ended and we went to the current system. Let me share with you one example. Many years ago in a NABC Swiss, partner and I faced an expert pair. They had a new minor ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Shiang - Sabine is THE nuts! Here is a link to her many achievements:
A list of "Just bridge" situations
David, if I have a hand where almost all options seem bad: raising my partner's suit is out, bidding NT with a stiff somewhere seems bad, I can't bid my own suit because we play 2/1 - I have too much to pass .... Then I might choose to ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: A85 AJ54 Q62 AK2
Craig, if responder doubles 2 because he has interest in doubling one or both of the majors - then how would he have room for 5+ diamonds and 3+ clubs, too? Sorry but this doesn't make lots of sense to me. I understand that this is not a very ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
"The key issue is how to get consistent rulings in complicated situations." BINGO, Steve! I have been at tournaments where literally the exact same scenario arose at two different tables - and - each table got a different ruling from two different directors. I can understand that some rulings are far more ...
A list of "Just bridge" situations
Randy, consider this. There have been posts and comments about psychs. As we all know, psychs are legal. And, psychs essentially are not alertable ... UNLESS you do them so frequently that you have established a "pattern" with your partner and your partner is aware enough to expect them. So. Suppose ...
A list of "Just bridge" situations
Sorry, Randy - I don't know what your last statement even means. Most people have a heart stopper when someone preempts and they bid NT. Some would never bid 3NT without one. Despite this, however, I do not think that this is something one needs to alert. My partners never ...
A list of "Just bridge" situations
Actually, David, something a bit like this did happen to me once. I did have 2 hands in 2 sessions of NAP qualifiers where I felt it was best to bid a 3 card major - and - it happened against the same opponent! (Different days.) The director at this event said ...
A list of "Just bridge" situations
Wow. So, Randy, despite the fact that when I bid a major over a minor, partner always plays me for 4 or more because only 1 in a thousand bids are 4 are more - you think I should alert? And say, what - "Once or twice every year or two, she ...
