ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
where did east-west go wrong on this hand
The bidding was not from the top drawer, but it's a really excellent defence hand. The A, discouraging signal, heart switch, then 9 later when the heart switch doesn't work should be put in a textbook.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I don't make any assumptions on whether F-N were exchanging signals in the bidding. Of course they may well have. But that has no effect on the point I am trying to make. Sorry, but the statement that the 2-level openers was a weak part of the system just ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I am certainly not frustrated, for several valid reasons, about the loss of book sales. But the fact that Fantoni and Nunes' cheating in defence implicated the integrity of their home-grown system is annoying. It is an entirely understandable reaction to the scandal. But as it happens, completely wrong.

Yes, the ACBL deserves lots of credit. Bridge competitions should be by invitation. Nothing wrong with not inviting people.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Whilst I'm not too keen on Ronald Kalf's post (surely there should be no statute of limitations on digging out the truth), I do share his feelings on playing a system that has been employed by cheats. Elsewhere in this thread there is the implication that Fantunes cannot ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I don't exactly know what a bridge 'theoretician' is, but I'd love a thread on great inventors. Roth has the negative double (and I imagine other devices). Rodwell has the support double. Oswald Jacoby has two incredibly popular and useful inventions. Culbertson's approach-forcing. And of course there ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Bob, your example goes nowhere near convincing me. The opposition bid 3NT having heard his RHO bid spades twice. Meanwhile you decide to lead through dummy's suit. That might not be a great idea, but I can see some logic behind it. It might be even more plausible if ...
Treatments over 1NT with 5-card major
A simple approach, which has minimal impact on your existing structure, is to, after a major suit response to Stayman, have a followup 3 bid that says: "is that major 5-cards long"? This also copes well when responder is 4-3 in the majors: he can check for both a ...
"Killing Eve"
Unfortunately Richard's link seems to be only the first half of the scene.
