Kevin Lane's bidding problem: T J98765 A876 A4
I passed, and I agree with the majority who voted for 2. I thought 1 would provide a positive score (it made 2), and this is matchpoints. Further, I didn't think 3NT would make since partner couldn't make a forcing bid over 1. Indeed, 3NT ...
Kevin Lane's bidding problem: T J98765 A876 A4
I've played 11 years with this partner. This hand is the first time I've seen him blanch like a ghost when he saw dummy. He advocates a pass with this hand which never occurred to me.

GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Two comments from a District Director: 1) Horn Lake did contact our district this year about a couple minor issues with our CoC. This contact happened well BEFORE the D22 event took place. So please don't assert that Horn Lake ignored the CoC's this year. 2) Please ensure ...
Script for colored suit symbols in Google Docs
It is possible to change your preferences such that typing exclam-S automatically creates a symbol (tools --> preferences), ... Unfortunately, you can't set the color (or font size) automatically on this type of substitution -- so you would still need to run a script to do that.
Interesting Play Problem from Victor Champion Cup
K at Trick 2 is standard isn't it?
Foolish or Brilliant?
My recollection from watching this live was that Greco tanked for quite awhile over 5NT, potentially suggesting doubt about spades as trump - and hence potentially revealing relative spade weakness. Maybe the wait was an artifact of vugraph (or my bad memory). Was 5NT pick a slam?
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
