Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
I don't understand why you thought his answer(?) meant hearts were 3-2. That's not what he said.
Crowd-Sourcing the Bridge World's March 2020 MSC Contest
If you want to get good scores on bidding contests, I'm sure that's a good way to do it. At the table, of course, you don't get a committee. It seems possible you'd learn something from this exercise as individuals, and also that you wouldn't ...
Should we have taken the push?
I'm very uncomfortable with the idea that following the rules should ever be cause for penalty. If North in particular has a history of violating this rule I suppose there is some justification. What other people in the field do is certainly irrelevant IMO; those people are not under ...
Rate mY Idiocy
Sometimes the partial count will indicate that a particular opponent cannot have length. That may not be what happened here, but the OP question is not stupid; there are cases where playing the K first is right.
Quotes About Bridge (Or might have been)
You can't win, you can't break even, and you can't get out of the game. From The Wiz, although there are similar predecessors.
Jump Reverse

Mass ACBL E-Mails
I certainly wish that everybody sending me junk e-mail was paying for them. Can we charge more?
Which Law says it's illegal?
Yes. Makes figuring out who won the first Swiss match rather difficult. Obviously that's not what it means, but that's what it says.
An unfortunate mistake
For those who don't know, it really stands for Your Mileage May Vary, used to indicate that something might be different about the reader's experience with whatever he was talking about than the poster's. It is originally American but I thought it was universal by now; it ...
No Matchpoints
Apparently this slang usage hasn't crossed the pond (I had no idea it was American). When playing IMPs people frequently take safety plays to make their contract, when a more aggressive line would have brought in overtricks. When this happens it is common to say "no matchpoints" ironically.
