Terrible Tempo
They were correct to remove the stop card. While it was a mildly useful tool for reminding your opponents not to cheat, it was much more widely used to remind partner that you were making an alertable bid. EDIT: I'm not accusing anyone in this thread, or anywhere else ...
Max Aeschbacher's bidding problem: Q985432 T5 J8 J8
Now that a clear majority has presented itself I'll reveal what happened. At the table in question, there was a substantial break in tempo over the 5C bid. After the director was called, responder insisted that he had a "clear-cut 5 spade call". I disagreed with that assessment, and ...
Eric Sieg's lead problem: 5 76 KQJ962 J862
I suspect a club is the only lead that beats the contract, because that's the only suit I'm sure I'm NOT leading.
Doubled Cue in Slam Sequence
I have a general distaste for asymmetric agreements unless they come up quite often. (Like the difference between Stayman followed by 2H vs 2S.) This might not be a once in a lifetime auction, but it could be 30 years before you see it again, and any agreement you set ...
True North American Championships Coming
Until we can build that 40,000ft wall along the eastern seaboard, this will have to do.
Polly Siegel's lead problem: Jxx x Axxx AJxxx
I'm dying to know what the whole hand was.
Flin Flon 2: The North Remembers
Alas, the 4 was not on Greg's head during the drunk Swiss, it was during the two-session open pairs on Saturday. And we were both sober. I will note that I was impressed that he remembered to play that card from his head at the appropriate time.
Road to Victory?
I hate popcorn, but if you were to create videos recapping all the hands you've EVER played together, I would buy a year's supply of popcorn and quit my job.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: --- T962 KQ532 K742
I don't think pass is easy. I was tempted to do it, but I feel compelled to give partner the benefit of the doubt that the could have a "bridge" reason for bidding the way they do. Perhaps they chose to bid a control-heavy 6233 20-count this way. I ...
Ankur Rathi's bidding problem: Qx AJx AKQJ9x xx
I feel pretty strongly that whether pass is forcing is a matter of taste and partnership understanding. My taste here is that pass IS forcing. Partner is not racing to compete to 4m rvw with minimal values. Their X of 3 creates a game force (unless 3X becomes ...
