Do You Count Your Cards?
Kelsey claimed that anyone who can count to 13 can become a master bridge player. I have practised roughly 32 times per week for years, but it got me nowhere in terms of playing skills.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
More stories: 1. A friend of mine once quoted to me, laughing, a dialogue from the week before, playing with a sponsor: Sponsor: I hoped you would have led a club back. Friend: I don't think I could. Sponsor: But I thought you would understand the problem because when ...
How should I act after a BIT?
"If I was the opening leader in the BRP hand, I would hope that I could make what I consider to be a clear-cut lead, and if my opponents were damaged they would call the director (hopefully politely) and request a ruling. The director would then poll some people they ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I don't see it that way. East's comment can hardly be considered misleading.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
No, but East said something else, which is that he failed to take into account that West might be void. That part is AI to North, as I see it.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
When I ask world-class players to participate in polls, it is my impression that they take it very seriously and try to put themselves in the player's seat. They know that they are helping with decisions involving their fellow players. I doubt that a world-class player would fail to ...
The BR Ruling: Questions that Perplex Me
#1+2: If South had passed in tempo, East would probably not have made the remark. But the hesitation did not cause the remark, so the remark is clearly AI to North. If this is enough to eliminate the UI effect, the diamond lead is legal. #3+4: If the ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Jonathan: Awarding 7NT= to one side and 7NT-1 (you probably mean -2) to the other would have been highly controversial, in fact illegal. Either the diamond lead is legal (7NT-2), or it is not (7NT=). The split ruling says, "N-S may take away points from their opponents by making an ...
Defender's claim challenged by declarer
The source of the problem is that there are three brigades: 1. The Rules-Are-Rules Brigade. 2. The Rules-Are-Rules Brigade. 3. The Rules-Do-Not-Matter Brigade. In this case, two of the brigades award the defender both of the last tricks. That does not mean that brigade #3 is generally correct, which in ...
Defender's claim challenged by declarer
Except for those who abstained, I expect that a majority of voters intended to answer one of these two questions: 1. Do the Laws require of the defender to state a line of play when he shows his cards? 2. Does declarer get one of the last two tricks? I ...
