Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Apologies Ed, I meant that there is no relief from your obligations under 16B1 when the information is duplicated. As far as the laws are concerned when you have UI you have to behave accordingly no matter what the other information you have suggests.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
That is a reasonable position to take, but unfortunately the current laws do not include any provisions for situations where UI is duplicated by AI. I agree the laws are sub-optimal and could easily be improved, but this is what we have at the moment. I would certainly be happy ...
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
16A1a "A player may use information in the auction or play if: (a) it derives from the legal calls and plays of the current board (including illegal calls and plays that are accepted) and is unaffected by unauthorized information from another source;" I was incorrect, it does include plays not ...
Is this a guess?
A. Second choice 2.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
John, the part of Law 16 (16A1a) I refer to is very specifically talking about information from the auction being affected by additional sources of UI. I would suggest that in your example the UI you possess from overhearing that comment does not affect any of the information you have ...
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Without the UI there is a non-zero chance I still wouldn't recall our agreement and assume that partner is doing something very strange. With the UI that chance is greatly diminished. Therefore the information from the 4 is different depending on whether or not I have the UI.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Even if you think the bid is unaffected by the UI, and so is authorised, I cannot find anything in the laws that means we aren't constrained by law 16 by the UI we do have.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
"The 4♠ bid itself is a clear indication of what happened, and the AI from this bid totally matches the UI from the alert. You are permitted to bid anything you please." @Kit. I may be wrong, but I cannot find anything in the laws that says that if we ...
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Players do not need to "weigh up" UA and AI. Lets actually read 16A1a: "A. Players’ Use of Information 1. A player may use information in the auction or play if: (a) it derives from the legal calls and plays of the current board (including illegal calls and plays that ...
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Law 16A1a is pretty clear. "A player may use information in the auction or play if: (a) it derives from the legal calls and plays of the current board (including illegal calls and plays that are accepted) and is unaffected by unauthorized information from another source;" In this situation there ...
