Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
For decades, Bobby Wolf has held top posts in the ACBL and WBF. [quote="Bobby Wolff"]'...B-H (Becker Hayden) were caught red-handed and tried at the Atlantic City Pair Trials in either 1966 or 1967 and found guilty as charged...'[/quote] [quote="Bobby Wolff"]'...My guess is that I can ...
Your call
Unless other agreements supervene, David Burn seems right. In either context, if an expert player overcalls 2N and, over partner's 3 advance, rebids 4, then the director should adjust and consider a PP. But the director might allow a major rebid, to show the putative fit.
The four Queens Problem.
I addressed Michael's question honestly. I agreed that it's easier to find a successful line, seeing all 4 hands (hinted at, earlier, by my references to [b][i]giraffes[/b][/i] and [b][i]ostriches[/b][/i]). Also, given the actual lead, I admitted that you might play ...

The four Queens Problem.
The giraffe and the ostrich outplay Michael every time: A, A, finesse J, finesse J, K, K, finesse and cash 3 more s, cross to A to reach this 3 card ending: Dummy... K x x Declarer x K x Claim, cashing K. LHO must guard ...
Obviously Ridiculous Comments
When commentators ascribe different meanings to calls, with and without a bit, not all are joking, some put their suggestions into practice, and few admit to law-breaking :( Unfortunately, the practical enforcement of UI law is the real joke :)
Another Game Won by Alpha
[b][i]Alphazero[i][/b] ran on 1st generation [b][i]TPU[i][/b]s (Google's Tensor Progamming Unit -- a simple fast integrated circuit, designed specifically for [b][i]neural-netwoks[/i][/b]). The program was given just the basic rules of the game ([b][i]Shogi, Go, and Chess ...
