Memphis NABC+ Appeals Cases
Ed, I didn't say 'force'. It isn't phrase like this in the Laws. The director had to assign a score (preferably not an artificial one). Whether this forces 3NT on North is irrelevant. It is up to TDs to decide what would have happened if S explained W ...
Memphis NABC+ Appeals Cases
The ruling in Case 2 seems really flawed. Did the pollees ask about the double of 3C? I'm really confident that N would have asked if he'd seen the double and would have realized that 3C was a transfer to . Though I don't want to blame ...
Confusion over "Good/Bad 2NT" and competitive double
I wouldn't think G/B applies here. I do think 2N is a natural invite. I also believe S argument is false. The bidding wasn't enough. W's 2 bid wans't exactly free, it could've benn done on KJTxx and out. I'd have ...
Trick 1 Pause, Platinum Pairs
Gordon, I would like to refer you to exercise 9(a) from the Antalya simulations. http://www.eurobridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/2019-Simulations-Answers.pdf Though there are some nice words used in the answer, the (official) solution presented to me at the simulation was that S clearly contributed to ...
A thin slam
Biding 6 Needing A onside and breaking 6-1 with the singleton K.
Assign the Blame -- -530
N: what the f**k is 5? I DEMAND a return, I play the club 9. Still, what did S guess was happening in spades? That N led the 7 from 87x(x)?
Would you have this three bid auction?
I once held ATx AKQJxx AJ9x void And on 2C-3D O bid the grand. I find this hand a little bit better but would have no problem bidding the grand. It's very hard to find out if P has the Q, but I'm bidding it
Alerting in USA?
Never played WBF events. But I played EBL events and the alert policies are (almost) the same: http://www.worldbridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/WBFalertingpolicy.pdf http://www.eurobridge.org/regulations/systems/alerting-policy/ At pairs I would always alert, even without screens. At teams, I would expect them to ...
What's the ethical action here?
That's what I was trying to point out, the fact that you actually have that specific agreement on this specific meaning of the double.
What's the ethical action here?
I would bid 4 with no remorse. After the auction, I'd call the director, inform him of what happened and if he deems it necessary (opps damaged) he may create a poll and reverse the result to 3S making whatever. I've learned I should never direct myself ...
