An Extra Chance
"Excellent read, like always." - snap. The argument that North can bid 3 spades as necessary bothers me. If I was playing some kitchen bridge it would be a stronger argument but otherwise I think this choice should always be looked at through the prism of how easy it is to ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
"Explain: - the 21/1 odds in favour of the BT, after the Aces had won the qualifying rounds - Belladonna's trick-two shift here:" Odds of 21/1 are crazy in a 2 horse race where neither horse is horribly outclassed. Perhaps ...
Define Your Bids Before I Tell You My Defense
"Whatever you do, it is clear you cannot lie to your opponents, if they ask what you play you have to answer, I guess you could play some games and unless they specifically ask if you consider their NT weak or strong you just point to your agreements, but this ...
Equal Honors
I don't play weak 2's. This hand is a routine 3H opening for me. I think weak 2's are a sad compromise between a constructive sort of bid and a prempt and don't enjoy enough equity compared to other things you could play. My 2 level ...
Equal Honors
How do you like East's 3♥ opening? I like it a lot. The risk side of the equation is easiest to consider. An additional penalty but not a significant increase in the times the bid is going to be penalized. The benefit side of the equation is no 2S ...
What do you lead at trick 2, and why?
First rule of the system is don't forget the system and the second rule is don't invent system at the table. Currently my usual post match discussion on the signal issue goes like this: "How many f****** times do I have to say it. When you can just ...
Food for thought?
Its routine for me systemically and otherwise to commit to the 3 level with a 5530 in 2nd chair at any colours. I'm unsure if Benoit thinks I am a low level or high level player. I think the big picture is that you should have a style - you ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
I am anxious to agree with your point Ed. A psychiatric disorder is not heinous either. My response included the notion that the original poster was plainly referencing an act of paedophilia which is a crime.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
"Pædophilia is certainly a more serious problem than plagiarism. But pædophilia is a psychiatric disorder, not a crime. If we're going to compare plagiarism to some violent crime then perhaps rape is a better fit. But Mike was not making a comparison, he was making a list. And I ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
"Next to paedophilia and racism, as a writer I find plagiarism heinous." Arguing that this sentence was not comparing paedophilia to plagiarism is absurd. It is more absurd that a "writer" would make that argument.
