This person seems to bid and lead just like my husband, so it all makes sense to me. No wonder he finds their bid and play undisturbing and rather admirable and normal:) Passive leads, lightener double, interference…

Many of the posters here have Pareidolia. Its a function/ a projection of their own brain, if you will.

yes, I did read that, thanks. I admire your bridge and always watch table 2 when you play. But do you understand what I'm saying with the simile of Bush and Boye? Bush had enough belief in his rightness to bomb a whole country of innocent people. He was wrong. Boye may be wrong too.
And, I would have led a heart, just saying. Bidding a slam with two cashing cards out was a risk that lost. Let it go.

Do you ever wonder if President Bush had waited until he had definite evidence before he bombed Iraq? Get the analogy?….. scary thought, isn't it? Do you see any difference between your chain of thought and his?

Its beginning to seem that jealousy is rampant in the minds of bridge pros.

Who else thinks bidding the slam with ace king of hearts missing was a silly bid, and they deserved what they got?

I would have led a heart without thinking much about it. I think the whole discussion is over the top… like looking for thread to build a rope.

I can only think of two substances that might help a bridge player and those are piracetam ( or its close relative, aniracetam) and modafinil, a medication that increases alertness and is sometimes used by pilots. I saw neither of these on the list of banned substances.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it an offense in the ACBL to accuse someone of cheating and grounds to be kicked out of the ACBL? In which case , that penalty might apply to a lot of posters on this site, with all these accusations, and so far, absolutely no evidence?

BBO ACBL tournaments say “no enemies” so you would never end up partnering someone you had designated an enemy.

OF COURSE he looked at it!!! HE'd already played the hand! look above at one of his earlier posts and he'll tell what the cards were and how the play went.
So Jonathan Ferguson, YOUR comment makes NO sense whatsoever. It sounds “”Fractious“” … remember that word.

The hardest thing in the world to do is to admit you were wrong. It takes great people to do so. I hope the committee and the ACBL are up to it…..

Good, I hope you had a chuckle:) I'm putting “fun playing bridge” at the top of my list now…. this whole thing re acbl was enlightening! Stay well!

You think the effect of the the ACBL's decision will go away if you close down this thread? Seriously? Last night at the bridge club, EVERYONE knew … in fact, we threw boards on the floor to see if we could make cards pop out. Wrong kinds of boards probably. A poll taken… 2 out of ten people asked hand inadvertently had a card pop out when the board dropped.
Today at another club in another city, EVERYONE KNEW.. and NO ONE was thrilled with the ACBL… it was like a massive plummet in popularity for that organization because it made masterpoint collection seem pointless. …. as it is… so much money spent on tournaments and to have them so belittled by the ACBL itself!
A poll at this club had three of 15 members asked have cards pop out .
Seriously that organization had better listen to its members…. no one will travel anywhere to collect any “masterpoints” deemed to be of so little value that for a minor infraction 20,000 can be taken away.

Agree with you totally Suzette. A poll of acbl club members, spontaneously here, shows the majority are ashamed of the acbl because of this ruling.
