What is going on?
This is what happens, when after an auction P - 2N; 6N - 7N a panel of experts is required to choose the worst bid.
Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
It is going to pain me to write this comment. I used to really like Adam Z. He was fun to kibitz and for 3 years between 2012 and 2015 I thought I could learn something from him. Nevertheless, I would be remiss not to point out a fundamental data ...
Have you ever seen this auction before?
I perpetrated this auction (1) - 4 on board 16 of the 2nd final of Blue Ribbon Pairs in Denver 2015. At the time we played this call as showing 6 spades, a 5 card minor and enough playing strength to be in game. While my hand roughly matched ...
Horrible ruling : Daily Bulletin March 17, page 9

It is a great practice for national events. I have been playing in tournaments for about 18 years. Never in ...

Partner and I discussed this one with a small variation that LHO actually raised to 4D. We thought declarer should play a spade to the ace. Assume both follow low. Then play HA, DA tossing H from dummy, HK, club from dummy to the ace in hand, then exit spade ...

That was memorable. Having scored only 7.5 in the first session, I was just hoping, maybe, we could improve a bit and cobble together a semblance of a decent set. First board out of the box we bid 1N-3N like we are supposed to. And then we get this ...
Swings and other matters
Hello Henry, All of us have seen many individual boards that exhibited low variation of results, perhaps, a long string of 420s and 450s or a partscore hand with results ranging from -50 to +110. A swiss match can certainly be composed of two such low variance hands and five ...

Alex Perlin's bidding problem: JT94 K3 AJ762 Q5
Partner chose to bid this way with void / T964 / T / AKJT8763 With the ace of hearts predictably onside 3NT makes. Those 84 hands just scream for playing in no trump :)
