UI: What does it suggest? (Part 3)
As in the previous example, I can think of a number of choices responder was considering. So, from that standpoint, I would think opener is free to make what he thinks is an appropriate call. Yet that being said - I cannot see any call that makes logical sense other than ...
UI: What does it suggest? (Part 2)
I can think of lots of possibilities, Ray. Which is why, IMHO, one can gather nothing from the hesitation other than there WERE other choices. But - as mentioned, it isn't like there are only 1 or 2 other choices that might have crossed responder's mind. Forcing to game ...
I apologize for this question
While I am a huge believer in "full disclosure" - gotta side with Jim here. There are some pairs who, if they engaged in full disclosure and pre-alerts every round, MIGHT have enough time to play 3 or 4 of 'em - not 26! Gotta be a better way (though I agree ...
I apologize for this question
Oy.
I apologize for this question
But I have gotten different responses to this very topic, Mike, depending upon the director who shows up! Very frustrating!
I apologize for this question
Andy - I agree with your point that we should "want our opponents to know what our bids mean." But - I have seen partnerships penalized because they alerted something that was not an alertable bid. (And now the opps claimed this could have "awakened" partner.) Not always easy to go through ...
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
This is easy. Some will admit the truth and some will not. Do we want a system that penalizes those who are honest? I do not.
Where did East-West go so far wrong on this hand?
Don - don't feel bad; you have company. Many years ago I lost a GNT match for us because I thought I had 6 clubs in my hand - but in reality had 7. I could have run my entire suit against a 3NT contract but - not if I had only ...
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
Roland, with a silent partner, of course I think that the player who made the bid should be able to change it - assuming it was a mechanical error or whatever else is allowed with the laws. Period. But once partner says something, how do you ever know that the incorrect ...
Is this system bad or illegal? (EDIT)
Brad - your last sentence reminded me of this conversation retold to me from years ago. A pro was playing with his client and something bad occurred. She commented that she was not having fun. "Fun?!" he responded? "You want fun? If you want fun, then go to the movies!" Each ...
