Convention Cards in NABC+ events
Wayne: "During the bidding and play the laws allow you to look at your opponent's system card only at your own turn to bid or play." To clarify the position in England, the White Book regulations clarify the Law Book options selected by the EBU. In this case: WB1 ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
"Handing your card to the opponents seems like giving them the opportunity to look at it at any time." This may or may not be a problem. Say opponents are playing some complicated relay system. I will often have the convention card open throughout the auction and follow the auction ...
Alerts when gray: a specific siutational poll
"What I object to is alerting when there is no partnership agreement at all". Fair enough. There is no requirement to do this - even under EBU regulations. But consider a few things: (1) Your partner is presumably a sane and rational person - he/she is playing with you after all ...
Alerts when gray: a specific siutational poll
Craig: Law 40.A.1.(a) provides that agreements can be reached implicitly through mutual experience or awareness of the players. Your partner has bid 3, expecting you to understand the bid. I would suggest that your partner must think that you have mutual experience and awareness - else why ...
Dealing with Fair Disclosure when a tad grey
Stan: You are aware of Law 40.A.1.(a) that agreements can be reached implicitly through the mutual experience or awareness of players? How do you propose that your opponents will be aware of these implicit agreements if you don't alert? You may think that it is "simple ...
Dealing with Fair Disclosure when a tad grey
Michael H: You might say something like: "We have no partnership agreement about this specific sequence, but in some similar situations we play splinter bids. This may be either natural or a splinter, but I cannot be sure". Or if he really has no idea, he should say so.
Dealing with Fair Disclosure when a tad grey
West should probably be given a chance to take back the final call. But if a double would suggest (say) leading dummy's first suit. This might not help. As Gordon says, the spade lead looks obvious anyway once the declarer has been called and it is explained that South ...
Dealing with Fair Disclosure when a tad grey
I believe the OP is in England and the test is whether the 3 bid is natural (not "standard"). If it is not natural, it needs to be alerted. North should also alert, even if there is uncertainty about the meaning of the call (Blue Book 4 A 5).
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: AQT Q842 J93 J95
Partner is playing me for about an 8 count. I don't have a lot to spare.
Do you play your 2!D opening as a weak 2?
Multi 2 for us.
