Ever heard or seen this?
I was just talking with a poker dealer about bridge. He told me he grew up with bid whist, which I had never heard of. Amazing that this all happened a couple of weeks ago! He told me about "uptown" and "downtown." It all sounded pretty interesting. Thanks for the ...
Retiring TD -- Roger Putnam
I moved out to the west in time to get to work with him for a few tournaments. He's top notch and has the best people skills! I never see anyone who is unhappy when he leaves the table. Something I hope to be able to achieve someday.
The rest of the story...
I don't know what to tell you, Peg. If you don't think the director understands the issues, spell it out for them. I know there are times when we think we know what the problem is only to find that the player sees a different problem. If we ...
The rest of the story...
The only time you would be seeing the forms is if you said you were appealing. We don't fill out forms when handling a ruling, but we do make a record of the hand.
The rest of the story...
Peg, there are still appeal forms. They are filled out at NABCs for every appeal that occurs (or might occur). Both sides still have to sign it. That process has not changed.
The rest of the story...
Peg, While that's true. If 100% say they would bid but wouldn't fault anyone for passing, still no one passed. So, even if they're thinking about it, they still don't do it. Therefore, it's not considered to truly be a logical alternative.
The rest of the story...
Definitely not, nor should that be included. We want to know what people would do given no UI. That's how we get a true poll. And, in the hand you posted about, it seems people passed, so the board was adjusted.
The rest of the story...
True, it's not a great analogy, just something that came up recently. All I'm really trying to get at is that, when polling, if everyone takes the same action as our person with UI when they didn't have any UI, we can't now force that person ...
The rest of the story...
I certainly understand your concerns. But, do you still think it's right to punish someone for doing something everyone else would do? I was recently put in a situation where I wasn't sure if a bid was forcing (it has since been clarified that it was 100% forcing ...
The rest of the story...
If everyone who is polled doubled, then pass isn't a logical alternative. While it's true that some of the risk has been removed, we still have to go with what peers would do. Here, it seems as if the result of the poll showed that people passed. We ...
