Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
New CC Usage in D22?
It's ridiculous that each NBO reinvents the system-card. IMO... - There should be a universal standard-card in standard format. - It could be based on an improved WBF system-card. - While strictly maintaining the same overall structure and philosophy, there could be simplified versions of the standard-card, for different levels of competition ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Donald Mamula writes "you forget that for decades, making an accusation of cheating was a more serious offense than the cheating itself." Quite right. It's gamesmanship (at best) to accuse our opponents of cheating. But our suspicions should not remain secret. Instead, we should report our "certain almost 100 ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Ad hominem personal attacks on Avon Wilsmore and Michael Hargreaves detract from this thread's interesting evidence, anecdotes, and arguments.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
@Avon. We've read The American Bridge biographies. Manifestly, that evidence has been in the public domain for a long time. Nevertheless, it seems to have had little effect. @Donald. Surely, in these circumstances, it's safe for Bobby's expert players, with their first hand experience, to come out ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule

In the US, when declarer has card(s) left in a suit, and you show out, it's traditional for partner to ask "Having none?". This sometimes enables a defender to work out distribution, so attitude signals might be more useful. For a short while, sensible lawmakers disallowed this question ...
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
@Yordan: In Scotland, some pairs agree that after 2 (Multi) - 2 = ART Pass/Correct but... - 2 = NAT F1 Constructive good 5+ . FWIW, their logic is that opponents are forewarned about the break by the standard: - 2 = ART Pass/Correct 3+ s Also a natural ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Kerry Kappell cites this hand 1961 Bermunda Bowl Final #5 E/W ♠ 8542 ♥ QJ64 ♦ K3 ♣ A105 Pass (Pass) 1♣ (1♠) ? Kerry comments "Negative double perhaps? Nah, 2♥, partner will have support for you! Just a bad bid? Sure, just another bad bid by the championship team year after year. Sure ...
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Assuming crude facts as in the OP and the deal is as Dave Beer suggests, IMO - The director should adjust to 4S= or a mixture or 3S+1 and 4S=. - An appeal should result in an appeal without merit warning.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
It would be wonderful to set up an international body to implement John Adam's proposal. If you could do so, it should replace the WBF bureaucracy, to run all international competition, cheaply and efficiently. Unfortunately, it would require leadership and international co-operation on an unprecedented scale. The alternative of ...
