ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Best line of play?
Thanks all. West held Jxxxx xx Kxxx xx so most but not all lines work. FWIW I went with Kenton's line.
Adventures in card play
I actually partnered player one for a period of time. Don't remember any issues about the temperature of the milk or any front doors being opened. I do however recall a Swiss teams event when he requested our table was moved to the corridor because it was too warm ...
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
As per John Portwood I don't agree with the ruling. It is a misinformation case not an illegal agreement so -3 IMPs is not the correct ruling. However there is potential for a weighted score if the TD judges the auction would have gone differently if the correct information ...
Paula Leslie's bidding problem: QJT9xx AKx Qx xx

Paula Leslie's bidding problem: QJT9xx AKx Qx xx
Wrong place!
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.

Zero-max imps (new scoring method)
Interesting idea Ian - can't see it catching on though. I have issue with this statement. "Theoretically you shouldn't be able to do better than the optimum score for the hand unless the opps make a mistake; they should suffer but you should not gain" Sometimes you can force ...
Gold Coast Ruling
That AC ruling makes no sense as a X would have been pulled to 5H a large percentage (100?) of the time anyway. So 5H needs to be part of the weighted score.
Richard Granville's bidding problem: A953 QJT42 9 K72
What happened at the table on this one Richard?
