Monaco Triumphs in 2012 Spingold After 52-0 4th Quarter
Congratulations to the Monaco team! Dang, now I really wish that Fantunes was a playable system in Jack 5.
Long, lon-n-g-g suits
If I were a certain somebody, I would check my random number generator...
Gargoyle Chronicles - Event 3, Match 5, Board 4
Sven, I meant as South. The hand that opened 1 and rebid 2, how many players would bid 3 with that hand, after partner's 2 bid?
Gargoyle Chronicles - Event 3, Match 5, Board 4
It looks to me like 5 makes, but how good is it looking at the N-S cards only? How many players would bid 3 as South on the third round? If I did it, would I be crazy?
Rank these bids please
Redouble should show a first-round control in the suit cue-bid, diamonds here. 3 and pass should tend to deny a first-round control. 3 should be a non-encouraging bid, probably a dog, which has no other direction, while a pass can be made with hands that have more flexibility ...
Bridge benefited by psychology
In an ideal world, I would shoot a half-ounce of Beefeater in all four cases.
They Bid My Suit! What now?
I faced this very problem in the NAP. Even though I voted for 2, at the table I bid 2 because I wanted to eliminate any misunderstanding risk. We ended up in 5, which thankfully made, although it did turn out that 4 is laydown.
Pedantic Poll
For readers of "Godel, Escher, Bach" such as myself, the answer is obvious. :-) If you like, we could have a meta-meta-poll: "Should we make a big deal out of people abstaining from bridge polls?" And so on, and so forth...
Gargoyle Chronicles - Event 3, Match 4, Board 6
I was taught that a two-level overcall is OK if you have 10 HCP and a five-card suit with three honors, or a six-card suit with two. Accordingly I would have overcalled 2 if the nine of diamonds were the ten.
Logic Puzzle
I've got a book with a puzzle that has the same basic idea. Without revealing the entire answer, I'll just get it started: imagine if there were only ONE player with a gold marking, instead of twenty. He would look around, and see nothing but black markings around ...
