Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
UI or not?
Timo, you are certainly correct that the majority of BW posters think only along the lines of experts and have little regard to what C players expect. I doubt many of them play pro with clients who are just casual bridge players. But as I said before, only you know ...
UI or not?
"SOS redoubles and stolen bid doubles belong in the same garbage bin." I always heard that, at least about stolen bid doubles. However, did you read Kit's column this week? Or did you throw it in the garbage bin?
UI or not?
As North's partner, you are the only one who knows what type of player North is, 1000 MPs notwithstanding. I would have expected such a player (typically a Silver LM), to know that if 3 DBled is making, it is likely to be a matchpt top or nearly ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
David wrote: "Take any flight C player you know. Defend a hand with him. At some early point when second to play, take a card from your hand, put it back, take out another card, frown, sigh, and eventually play something. Ask your partner whether you just played a singleton ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
Alan, good analogies, but what about rules that are hard to comprehend, such as the infield fly rule? Many casual fans will never understand that rule. And what about a runner on 2nd stealing signs from the catcher and relaying them to the batter? Because of that, catchers resort to ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?

But the innocents will rapidly learn not to break tempo in tempo-sensitive situations (thus actually reducing, not increasing, the number of director calls)." The innocents, especially the newer ones, will rapidly learn to leave the bridge table and ...
Xmas party bridge
"You may look at your hand for 10 seconds only, close it. Now bid. Play normally." Even I can, and usually do, just that. It just takes a little practice. Playing normally.... now that's harder! Oswald Jacoby could spread his hand, look at it for about 2 seconds, put ...
Xmas party bridge
Too bad the stop card was eliminated from most bidding boxes. Makes it hard to use it to stop the auction. I do wonder about bidding to the 4 level. What happens if you make an insufficient bid and don't correct to a comparable bid, or you make an ...
New Event - Double Elimination KO - Toronto Regional
An interesting concept. It would certainly benefit the hosting organization since you require 3 sessions of 18 bds for 3 entry fees in one day. Yet one plays just 54 bds in those 3 sessions, rather than the usual 48-56 bds in 2 sessions (depending on whether it is a ...
An Embarrassing Unintended Pass
While Law 25 states that your Pass should stand, there are some circumstances where it may not. Some years ago, in a club game I opened the auction, which went 1 (P) 3!. My RHO then asked the meaning of the alert and I explained "Bergen Raise showing ...
