An “A” player not realizing he had a second spade? Impossible…. he should have not only his own hand figured out, but that of every other hand at the table. This is an interesting post…..

What was the name of the player who revoked? Did you have a discussion with him later after you had the hand record? It certainly puts that player in a very bad light, particularly as he lied to you.

Mike, you gave me my afternoon's laugh and thank you for that :)
Ps: I'm with you on “when you're croaked you're croaked”.
Imaginative people can have any heaven they want and the rest of us don't care…..

In our system, two hearts after interference shows a limit raise in partner's major. If I transfer into hearts, that shows less than a limit raise, and if I bid on after the transfer it shows a full opening hand. So, in this hand, two hearts shows my hand and good values precisely.

I've discovered very recently, it's not about the points, it's about the people you meet…. Love those smart people at the bridge clubs!

So very sad. I enjoyed watching him play with JEC. Was he known to be ill, or is the cause of death not known yet?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the 3NT rebid by east showing a running 6 card suit as a source of tricks? I know that's the way my partner and I play it.

I clicked on the link and went to that site. What a confusing mess! I didn't find any bridge , or place to rate bridge. It was a jumble and every game had its hand out looking for money. Cribbage? What is this $198.00?
Too much information. NOthing to do with bridge.

A few years ago my husband and I played at the Nationals when they were held in Toronto. We're from BC and just happened to be visiting relatives in the Kawarthas. We were told by friendly chatty opponents that we could expect to see very few of his fellow players from Toronto there because the games were too expensive. That's a clue, is it not? They didn't even have to pay for accommodation, and could have taken the subway, but they didn't attend!!
So I believe the answer to the problem is making the games fee par with the fees at the local clubs.
This would also solve the problem of Canadian money being worth so much less than the American dollar.
ALSO, if this can be done, then it would be wise to publish it in advance.

I don't like the web version at all. The ads take up space on the screen. I find it difficult to navigate. The table space is too small on my screens, so its inefficient. I've used the downloaded version since the inception of BBO.
I understand why BBO wants the users to use the web based version. They want the money from the ads, simple. It doesn't make the web based version better for anyone but for them.
However…. can't complain too loudly… its free.
Another point, I try to get new users, that is, new bridge players onto the old down loaded version of BBO, and it doesn't accept them. Some are older and have vision difficulties with those small spaces that comprise the table space. Making that bigger makes the chat smaller. Very very poor design, imho.

I agree with you Andreas. My opinion of Versace just plummeted. … and I feel decisions like that of the director in this case give bridge a bad name.

Steve, I'm glad you posted this. My husband is my regular partner and we play out at clubs, but I'd love for us to be able to play on BBO tournaments like you and your wife do. What arrangements do you make with BBO, if any at all, in order to be able to play with your partner in the same house? We would be 2 rooms apart, but how is BBO to know that? And of course I would have to be able to convince my husband that it would fun and acceptable to play tourneys. At the present time he doesn't play on BBO at all, just kibitzes.
Also, about the hand that you reported to us above… did you ask the BBO directors if they found anything suspicious in other hands this couple played? It might be a start…

Barry, you sound like a very nice person, and I'm sorry for your predicament here.
But, you haven't stated clearly what your qualifications are to be a bridge teacher?
Can you tell us more about that? I don't recognize your name, so assume you haven't won any national titles. If, in fact, you are a gold life master or above then you probably know what you are teaching. If you are teaching on BBO, it would be good if you posted exactly what you taught and made it exceedingly clear what value you would be to your student. Have you been forthright?
It does sound like your student had some issue…. Can you fill that in a bit?

I believe you are confused. The kind of bridge in which there are no rules belongs around the kitchen table. Bridge tournaments that select the world champions require that all play by the same rules. The legalities were not adhered to by the US team on hands in which they opened less than 8 points in third. They committed infractions. Now, is that clear enough for you Sigurbjorn?

Paul, I wish I could like your comment ten times…. you've expressed perfectly what I think. I hope the discussion here on BW does lead to appropriate penalties.

Totally disagree. Its all about the play and the defense. If there are no rules, chuck the game from “world championships” and play in your kitchen… where you belong.
