about me

I recently completed six years on the Board of Directors for the Seattle Bridge Unit. I am on the ACBL Board of Governors and the Competitions and Conventions Committee. I also help manage and direct a once-a-week bridge club on Mercer Island. And occasionally I find time to play bridge too. Smile

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Hold on a minute
Cards only become penalty cards if partner "could have" seen their face. It doesn't sound to me like this was the case. They should have just been returned to east's hand.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: A73 K964 T97 J42
That's what I said at the bar and people disagreed, hence the poll. :)
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: AJ63 64 K4 KJT63
I don't know what happened at the table, but if passing is not a logical alternative then it doesn't become one when partner hesitates. That's the whole point of not mentioning hesitations when doing a poll.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: K92 K985 A864 A9
We had the same auction except partner picked 3. And we beat 3 one trick also. (Hard for partner to see the need to give a club ruff after the takeout double.)
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: 75 T632 T9865 QT
I'm assuming a real event. I would pass in a club game.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: QT542 93 73 KQ42
I like to bid 1, but you have to draw a line somewhere.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AQ75 Q96 KJ4 765
You are definitely not in a forcing pass situation. As to what 5 shows, well, that is part of the reason for the poll.
Deportment -- who's at fault?
I don't think there is a problem with the question "no ten?" as long as you are prepared to explain that you are claiming if the the other person is confused. As for the other question, I think it's easy to end up with two people talking past ...
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: A8 A932 T54 KQ54
This is an auction where if partner wants to play 3NT and doesn't have a stopper they need to check that you do.
Atlanta BOD Minutes and Exhibits
The amount of money this saves is not very much. I would prefer my board member to have a chance to watch a meeting before attending one as a member.
