Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Kit - you have said three things which I believe are demonstrably false in this comment and the follow-up. First you stated the following: "When the opponents reach 7NT on an RKC auction where they presumably hold all the aces ... " They didn't hold all the Aces and yet West's ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Somebody posted this link earlier so I took a look (from the 1959 Bermuda Bowl): I found board 147 very interesting. Belladonna tries to play in a 5-0 fit ...
Marion, How would you describe the following actions? "Throwing the board so as to misplace a card. Not telling the opps that he had done this. Unilaterally “rectifying” the board. Not calling the TD. Not acknowledging that anything out of the ordinary had happened when a bad board turned into ...

@Richard Franklin, All my own work - using the skills of my day job for my hobby. As suggested by some the average includes too many outliers - not sure about using the median (it is zero). Perhaps a better measure is whether the lead lost a trick or not. In other ...
Fisher comments...
@Richard Franklin - I have already done exactly that analysis for F/S leads - using all BBO files in which they have played together as a partnership. To repeat the idea - compare lead success with double dummy results using double dummy calculations before the lead and just after the lead. You ...
