A unique hand
I was playing with Kit in the Buffett Cup as a sort of preemptive bid. He was protected from my holding the A though, as he had it.
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
"even Oren thinks this" I do, although I didn't say that about your opponent's remarks. I said that if she had said, "f*** you," I would think that was proportionate (but inappropriate). I think her reaction was also proportionate, but not a great response. She reacted angrily, but ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Well, I've been invoked, so I might as well respond. I stand by "outrageously out of line." In my view, any gratuitous comment to an opponent is out of line. One that informs an opponent that they could have done better in the play, perhaps should have done better ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Peg, I chose the word "outrageously" because I would have been outraged if an opponent had spoken to me like that and Michael's opponent clearly was outraged. Michael's comment can be outrageously out of line and also well intentioned, and I believe that it was. It does Michael ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Yes, Steve, context is everything. A participant in an organized competition made a gratuitous remark to an opponent that could reasonably (and, I think, correctly) be construed as taunting. I don't doubt that Michael's intent was innocent, but intent isn't everything. But sure, allowances can be made ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Really? I think a proportional (but inappropriate) response by her would have been, "F*** you." She didn't speak eloquently, but one can hardly be surprised she reacted strongly. Michael's comment was outrageously out of line for bridge reasons but also social ones.
"You got it wrong."
This hand came up in conversation this week in St. Louis, and it reminded Eddie Wold of a wild hand from years ago. He set it as a problem: The auction goes (1) 1 (P) ? to you. When given as a problem to a group of world champions ...
Board 3 Day 1 Session 1 LM Pairs
I have not read all the above posts carefully, so I may not be the first to say this, but there is a big problem with how UI rulings are performed. Suppose, as in the above case, the spade play is shown to be clearly percentage (I believe it is ...
Board 3 Day 1 Session 1 LM Pairs
I'm certainly below "super expert level" and I passed 3NT in tempo with the North hand.
Take football for example. There are tons of animations and graphics that display routes and blocks and QB lines of sight so a layman like me can follow it. A team of good marketers could do something very similar for a game on guess. Highlighting opening bids, failures to make ...
