Eric's generic 2/1 card
Copy to my cards View/Print
Winston Chang's lead problem: 65 AKJ854 7 KQJ5
The overwhelming majority for a top heart is unsurprising... so is there more to the story?
What is your opinion about this auction ?
"Board must be reported to TD" feels like an odd option unless there's something more to the story?
Should I have troubled the TD?
> might be implying that the UI from East's slow pass over 2♦ suggested five spades rather than four That argument feels like a stretch to me. East can't count on west for four spades, so will be looking for something forcing but less committal than the jump to ...
Board 3 from the 02/02/2018 Common Game

It would be very helpful to know which drugs partner is on. Uppers suggest a pass, downers suggest 3N or double.... and either way, aren't we supposed to disclose this to the opponents? :)
Strange goings-on
I recall a story about Al Roth recognizing a board that he had played some days ago at the same national event. In the old days of hand-shuffling and dealing, it's easy to see how a board could be accidentally transferred from the not-made pile to the made pile ...
Are Rules Meant to be Broken?
In slow play situations: Maybe I'm just lucky with the directors that I've encountered, but I've generally gotten good outcomes when I call the director at the start of the round: "The opps just got here and we're already five minutes into the round - we'll ...
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: Q954 J632 J87 95
i apologize for leaving that out - this came up in the context of a very straightforward 2/1 system, so 1C promised three or more clubs.
