A grid yes but I have no visual memory, so I dont see anything in my head. I remember by sound in my head- I speak the grid. Very hard to explain but it developed as a child. After going to see a specialist because I was unable to copy from the blackboard to paper at school it was discovered that I do not have a visual memory- that is I cannot visualise words, or patterns or pictures in my head. They gave me a course which my father taught me every day where I learnt to remember things in other ways. By now it is subconcious and my recovery methods make me basically normal- but for example my spelling is poor relative to my level of education because I am unable to spot on instinct if the spelling of a word ‘looks’ wrong. I spell by certain rules. I have an exceptional memory for faces- can't explain why though!

The lanza situation and FN are certainly different. I won't talk to Lanza, but have played him over the years when I have to.
FN just do not deserve to be able to play this game among us anymore.

Obviously but I think it is getting a bit far fetched to accuse someone of cheating because they crossed to the heart queen then paused to think.

I know what the point is but so what?

Ive never discussed this with anyone but would assume double was asking for the major. It is a normal negative double situation, there are 2 majors left to find out about and I would certainly want to be able to bid my own heart suit.

I cross to the queen. Then plan the next trick and this denies the king of that suit? Sorry, I don't get it.

Your spade switch should be count in a cash out situation. So here the 8 or 10 is clearest although the 3 couldnt be from 5.

Ive played everything but the best is still double=4 and 1S=5+ imo.

Imo the pass of 6D is totally normal. It simply must be an offer of contract and at that point I would shrug my shoulders and pass, partner probably has been on some kokish tangent-not my problem and I have no UI as long as partner alerted my 3S as a splinter but even if they did I cannot see why I would correct to 6H-surely partner is trying to play in 6D! However, I do not buy that the other hand is allowed to know (with absolute certainty!!) Of the stiff spade opposite! This is a complex ruling but imo not the correct ruling, the focus should not have been on Jeffs pass of 6D but on Huubs actions imo.

I was about to write the same but you got there first! What a boring debate. Sport, game, pastime. Who the heck cares. They are all just words and it isn't even clear what the definition of a sport really is.
Bridge is a fun pastime (quote David Carlise) for many, for some it is also how they make their living and is certainly more than just a fun pastime. Football, rugby, cricket are fun pastimes too.

I stand corrected. I didn't notice him detach a card but apparently he did-there is video evidence. It was the last board of a long event and I was concentrating hard on the hand more than what my partner was doing.

I dispute that he detatched a card and changed his mind. At least that is not at all how I remember it.

Actually the lead was a false card 3 of spades. This is a large factor in why spades looked to be 4-3. Hard luck Barry,congrats to Zia and Curtis!

Marathon running where each individual doesnt affect the result of others and bridge. A good comparison.
The competitors here even look like marathon runners actually.

Things have changed when opener drives the 5 level with weak trumps (and possibly some heart worry). The 3D bid now is surely based on a strong side-suit and possible alternative strain. I cannot see how we can not be playable+ in 6S when I have all of this!

Agree with richard here. 4d shows support, 4h offers hearts but in the context of bothered to rebid diamonds.
