Speedball Claim
Ok, for all of those reasons, too :) I forgot a had been ruffed. So yes, all signs points to no finesse with a complete count on the hand
Speedball Claim
West will have a count on the hand. North has shown up with 3 and 1 and when he plays the third round of , North will follow. Finessing him gives North a 5 card suit for his preempt. It could happen, but odds would be against. It ...

Unusual UI Situation
The best thing to do in these types of situations is to fill out a player memo. At NABCs, there are multiple computers set up right outside the playing area to make it easier for players to put in the information. That's the best way we can track hesitations ...
