What are opponents entitled to
Let anyone who thinks about becoming a Director ponder if they want to spend their life judging questions like this.
Anyone want to try a safety play?
If you cash the AS then AD and JD, West wins and returns a heart. On the next D, East discards a H and West leads another H, either J or low. East ruffs and you are a trick short. If you draw trump, you have no entry to your ...
Exactly! The QS is redundant. West has a ten point hand. Whereas East’s six spades are extra tricks. Oops. East only has 5 spades. Penaties for the pair of them!
Test your analysis, COMMON GAME 13 DEC BOARD 5
Assuming West is 5-5 in minors, you can play him for 2-1 or 1-2 in the majors. If he is 2-1, eliminate minors, cash one heart, and throw him in with his KS. However, East's fourth-best 2H lead marks West with 1-2, so you need a different throw-in with ...
Test your analysis, COMMON GAME 13 DEC BOARD 5
Assuming West has his 4NT bid, there are two different holdings you could play for. And the correct play is definitely not double dummy, given the help from West’s bid and East’s lead.
Major Disagreement with NT Interference
Life is too short to insist on 5 cards in the major...or in the minor. 4-5 is preferable since partner tends to pass the minor with three. But, how often will they catch you in a 4–3 2C or 2D contract?
From a bidding box when is a bid final?
This Claim that a bid is made because someone saw it invites spurious claims, usually by bullies intimidating inexperienced players. Similarly, Assertions that Declarer played a card because a defender saw it occur too frequently at local clubs and cost the ACBL members. Have we all forgotten Zero Tolerance?
What would you do?
It took me too long to figure out I was East.
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Please, I have nothing but the best wishes for H&H. I am proposing a Plan B to keep Fantunes out of US events. Of less importance: I have heard that Nickell pays his teammates in full accordance with US laws. He is a class act. I would applaud the ...
Ok. Let’s try another way to skin this cat. How much have Fantunes been paid for their participation in US events? Do they apply for US tourist visas? Or for Green Cards? Are these payments reported to via 1099-Rs? Or they considered bridge instructions delivered in the Cayman Islands ...
