Searching for an Amalya Kearse deal
Thanks all. Will post the deal that triggered this in a few.
Ace Remembered
Thanks! That now rings a bell (but only a little one)… the memory is fading fast.
Ace Remembered
I was on Vugraph for the event and we were using an overhead projector. I reconstituted the deal and showed it to the audience before the start of the next stanza. The only other thing I remember about the match Soloway-Mari was that in that very same stanza that Goldman ...
Missed game - who was more responsible
It is somewhat curious that the North hand is pretty close to my April Fools example.
Missed game - who was more responsible
I hope this isn't seen as a direct criticism of a colleague's post but if Richard Fleet has to comment on 2NT by the doubler at his 2nd turn being anything other than natural we may see him come to a premature end. BW readers may recall that ...
Support? Preferences? Q-bid?
The far harder auction of delayed support by responder 'promising' five come when the minor suit is diamonds not clubs. See the Bridge World articles in 2015/6 (I'd guess) about whether after eg 1-2-3 the unbid suit shows a stopper and the major suit might ...
Missed game - who was more responsible
So maybe this is an April Fool? We can now post West's 'actual' hand as xxx/xx/xxx/Qxxxx and at the table East jumped to 4 over 2, with South (Axx/Q10xx/Jxx/J10x) doubling 4, though he would not have doubled 3 of ...
Missed game - who was more responsible
I think East has enough either to double again and bid 3 over a 2NT scramble or to take a shot at 4. If West hypothesizes a 2=6=(3-2) shape opposite with let us say 18 HCP and AK does game rate to be good. Let's ...
Total Tricks Shortcut
It would be nice if we could simplify everything that way. Alas, the LOTT really only works at the 2/3/4 level because the penalties at higher levels when you have no high cards but a good fit exceed their game/slam. The cutoff point which it is hard ...
A little gem
I hope you will send the hand to John Carruthers at bridge press association. This theme was curiously one I was thinking about earlier today. The first example of it that I saw was played by Edgar Kaplan also with KQ?x in the key suit. I'm guessing it ...
