A Very Amusing Board
I do not think Nathan's play was "too cute by half." I do think it was incredibly thoughtful, and could be right on many hands. It just happened to turn +1400 into -750 here. I was the declarer on the hand. As a side note, what do you think ...
What does this bid mean?

A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Ray, the first two statements weren't conflicting, I was with Walt and HE asked. I know that Walt is liked by very few, one of the assisting directors kicked him out of a bridge club for no reason. I can confirm(and everybody else that was there can) that ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
It depends on the case, but here for sure. There were plenty of things we might've done differently. Additionally Ellis pointed out that he would have sent a double back had it been vps.
