Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
UI, How would you rule?
If my opponents were experts, I might call the Director (but probably wouldn't). But they are clearly not experts if they have no machinery other than pass or 6H. And I can't see what North has learned that has helped (indeed, if the implication is that partner has ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
That doesn't seem to be the premise of the original question. If you ask me what is the minimum for a strong and artificial 2C opening, my answer (in my view) holds. If the question is about Benji Acol, that is a different question. Which the L&E Committee ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
Isn't it simple? 2C is a hand where I want to force to game unless I have a balanced hand? That is my judgement, not that of the L&E Committee. Guess I'm missing something (my partner often thinks it's a brain)
First book written by a lady
It's really simple. Two bob - or a florin - was the equivalent of half a crown, less a tanner : or two threepenny bits. It was also equal to 24 pennies or 48 farthings. Another way of looking at it is that you could take your bird to the pictures on ...
A bidding poll with a twist
I would pass. I agree that if you try to take tactical advantage of LHO's error you will be able to defend your position as ethical. It just isn't the way I play bridge.
The New McCarthyism
I would go a bit further. We all get enjoyment from different things and I make no criticism of what interests others. Personally I enjoy this site because of the discussion of bridge hands and systems. But there seems to me to be an increasing proportion of threads about directors ...
Who Will Win the Bermuda Bowl?
No such thing as quids - is it a typo for squids?
Devil's advocate
I'm not sure we disagree. I quite understand your frustration and, I guess, anger. I agree that Boye has been courageous and that without his action this story might have gone on and on. I just agree with those who want to make sure that the truth is established ...
Devil's advocate
I'm also with Kit on this. I've seen too many injustices where the accusers were quite certain that right was on their side but subsequent events proved otherwise. It is not a question of doubting the good faith or competence of those who are convinced that there was ...
Explanations
I agree. I might well choose to lead the 9 or the 8 in this position. Not because it is the right card according to my lead method but because I have no attractive alternative to a spade and I want to persuade declarer that partner has spade honours sitting ...
