Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is a logical alternative anyway?
I put "other", because if I know partner's slow raise is 3 cards, I'm p[laying with a very unethical partner, and my only logical alternative would have been to stop playing with this partner long ago.
Hamish Brown's bidding problem: Q874 Q6 AQTx Txx
I'm passing and doubling 3. Don't think there are enough trumps to justify going to the 4 level.
Most east-west pairs got in the auction. Should they have
Passing that hand would never occur to me.
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: KQ753 62 T64 AK6
I'm a little confused by the question. I'm assuming you passed in the hopes that partner would re-open with a double so you could pass and defend, and that's exactly what happened, so that's exactly what you'll do, right?
A "friendly" game
Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive. Asking everyone to follow the rules isn't some kind of attack on them. There is no reason not to enforce the rules with a smile, in a firm but friendly way, which should also prevent blood pressure problems.
A "friendly" game
I think this illustrates one of the reasons why you should apply / enforce all the rules all the time with all of the players.
Alertable or not redone
Unfortunately, I never did get those telepathy pills, so whether they do it by intentional agreement or unintentional ignorance remains a mystery to me.
Alertable or not redone
While I agree that both SHOULD be alertable, I have never seen the first one alerted, nor a director called when it wasn't, and since a sizeable minority (I would estimate about a third) of the club players I've come across play it that way, I'd say ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
No, but more and more I keep wishing I had. I realize that I don;t know you at all, but from what I've seen here over the years, I think bridge needs more people like you.
Melanie Manfield's bidding problem: 875 KJ52 AK5 J98
If I'm not playing 10-12 NT (which I usually am), I pass.
