What is the correct call?
Absolutely. That's what Law 45C4(b) is for. Plus a bit of commonsense, also.
What is the correct call?
What I meant was it was likely this was the law the Director should have been using. This law was changed in 2017 adding "until he next plays a card from either his own hand or from dummy" and if it had been in use in 1999 would have made ...
Michaels Crazy
Being 4=5 in the majors often leads to using Michaels after a minor suit opening, with usually good results.
What is the correct call?
Looks like a good chance the Director may have used Law 45C4(b): Law 45C4(b): "Declarer may correct an unintended designation of a card from dummy until he next plays a card from either his own hand or from dummy. A change of designation may be allowed after a ...
Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
Although I know the law and know 29% passing is enough to be a logical alternative, as East I'd feel very hard done by when 2 out of 7 polled passed (about the same percentage) - and wonder who was chosen to be polled!
Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
Good point, Andy - better than partner tanking and then bidding 5 over my 5. I'm thinking 4NT, just to be able to bid 5NT and give partner a chance to bid a grand with significant extra values, is better than 5.
Common game deal Wed 16 April
It's from Wednesday afternoon the 17th.
Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
5. AQx and AKxxx in the black suits and out makes 6NT cold if there is no black suit void out there, so I find it tough to consider pass to be a logical alternative. Partner may need a heart control and nothing else and my cards look like ...
Futile Willie?
I'm surprised more haven't mentioned South has one of the most obvious responsive doubles ever. If a small spade was a small diamond, then pass is very reasonable.
What would you say if you were director?
From the "Is this AI or UI?" thread Ray linked to, what Law 50E (Information from a penalty card) means with the literal wording (or perhaps there are multiple reasonable ways to read it) would be a great example of something our laws commission should rule on - and then make ...
