More Trouble Doubles
I was west on this hand. Fortunately south rescued me by bidding 2, not recognizing that the double was penalties, though DF says I should only be down 1 at 2. (Some actually made 2, though they were at 3.)
A question of law
If dummy can correct declarer in time, I.e. before a card is designated, that’s fine. If declarer has named or played a card before dummy can stop the mistake, then dummy should not say anything. Though this latter part is violated probably a hundred times every session.
SENIORITIS
Perhaps the two sessions were played as a lark since the end result was known, with no one seriously competing. If the pending concession had not been made, it is quite likely the results would have been different.
Should the place of VPs in KO events be reconsidered?
James, you mean intRA-league
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
I once won a round robin with a 4 - 3 record. The wins were blitzes or near blitzes, the losses were close.
Book advice sought
Long out of print, but I was able to locate a used copy.
Common Game 5/23/19 Hand 7
Richard, it’s not really a play problem like that. I saw the hand as an interesting one to figure out the best line. It’s not a Coffin construction.
Common Game 5/23/19 Hand 7
Yes, the blockage is the problem. Is there a way to diagnose the break without destroying the entries?
A thought experiment...how much would it be worth to see dummy before the lead?
Re: the Lew Mathe quote, stories like this have been circulated about many people in many different areas. For example, I remember reading a similar story attributed to a baseball player. That story certainly predated LM by several years. It’s a nice anecdote, but probably apocryphal.
USBC Fantasy Bracket Tiebreaker
For next year, maybe. For this year, a 5-way tie. You can’t change the CoC in the middle of the contest. Whoever is the fantasy administrator should have thought about it before the contest started.
