The Curious Case of Schneider-Reithoffer v Mollo
Avon, I have followed your articles on cheating with interest but I think this time you are on shaky ground. Meredith, was known to have a predilection for bidding the spade suit, even if he had only three of them. In the 1955 World Championship final against the USA out ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
The rules surely allow this so what's the ethical problem? There is a practical problem in that your opponents may be thinking about something different from what you are thinking of or (very rare but it happens) trying to mislead you.
Steve Rogers's bidding problem: KJ54 Q92 AQT53 6
I passed, partner tells me 4s is automatic, is it?
Steve Rogers's bidding problem: JT32 AJ987 953 6

Was anyone at fault here?
East if anyone but i can understand his pass as west may be pushing because three spades is competitive.
2019 Open European Championships Thread
"The local cost level has very little influence on the EBL costs of staging", how can that be? surely renting the venue and accommodating the tournament directors and officials is a major cost? "cost per board" is an interesting way to look at it, I guess we can all translate ...
Is this double take out or lead directing?
I think that it is very difficult to construct a hand that passes on the first round and now wants to take out on this auction (opponents have points and no sure fit has been found yet....) so it makes sense to play it as lead directing. However, you may ...
