What's the ethical thing to do when partner misreviews auction?
Law 20E is to cover the situation where bidding boxes (or some equivalent record) are not in use and there has been a mistake in re-stating the auction to date. It is not concerned with mistaken explanations of calls that actually occurred. The relevant Law is 20F(5): [b]LAW ...
Answering Sabine's Question
I'm well aware of these distinctions, David, but was trying to keep to a simple reply. For instance, some years ago I calculated the number you refer to in your second paragraph (and quite a few others as well): it's 592,740,375,824,980,396,335,288 ...
The demise of "whether"
Whether the weather be fine, Or whether the weather be not, Whether the weather be cold, Or whether the weather be hot, We'll weather the weather Whatever the weather, Whether we like it or not! And be careful with spelling: one doesn't want a lot of wethers running ...
Answering Sabine's Question
About twice what you thought - 635,013,559,600 different bridge hands. But Michael's number is for the number of different deals (4 hands), and is of course correct.
A Bridge Problem (of Sorts)
OK then: 1: 1,574,122,160,956,548,404,565 2: 133,333,333,333,333,333,333,333,333,333,333,333 (as Robin gave above) 3: 128,745,650,347,030,683,120,231,926,111,609,371,363,122,697,557
A Bridge Problem (of Sorts)
I won't spoil the thread by posting the detailed answer in full, but the number of legal possible auctions (with doubles and redoubles) is well known and is about 2 * 10^18 times the number of possible deals. It is just less than 1.3 x 10^47, starts ...
I hate Deep Finesse
Declarer plays on spades; East wins and clears the clubs. The second round makes the club position clear, and declarer may then wonder why East has done this with no apparent entry to cash them. Cashing the remaining major suit winners, declarer then endplays East with the clubs or drops ...
I hate Deep Finesse
Further to Paul's comment, Bo Haglumd's DDS has been used by the Duplimate machine software package for some time, though I believe that it originally used the Deep Finesse engine. This gave rise to the use of "Deep Finesse" analysis as the term for any such DD result ...
I hate Deep Finesse
Moved.
I hate Deep Finesse
There isn't a second undertrick when East doesn't duck a diamond, as declarer takes 8 tricks (3 s, 3 s, 2 s) before East can cash the winners, one of which has to be discarded.
