Stefan Olausson's lead problem: A3 T AQJ97 AT865
This was the actual deal:
How and when do you try for slam - or don't you?
Re. Option 1 --- why would I ever double with this hand? What is that supposed to mean?
Why was this easy slam missed?
I particularly detest the jump to 3 with a semi-balanced hand and tolerance for either 5+major. It's a bid that should generally be avoided, because it wastes so much useful space and gets in the way of the strong opener. Start 2-2-2-3, and ...
Bot Forum: Are Bots too Human?
re "ethics side of bidding" my view is that it does not exists in robot-tourneys. If you think you found a way to explore robot-weaknesses, it's just part of the game. I really don't know if the above example (concealing the long suit) is a winner or loser ...
Bot Forum: Are Bots too Human?
Yes, GIB robots are very weak in many defensive situations because they have virtually no defensive signals or agreements. Not only that, they also draw no conclusions from earlier play. I had a spectacular example yesterday, I was declarer, and during the play RHO-bot played a small heart from AQx ...

Bot Forum: Are Bots too Human?
At the time it was developed (mid 1990'ies), GIB algorithm was a great breakthrough over all earlier attempts at programming bridge-player software. But after the "Gibson" single-dummy analyser (early 2000's?) virtually nothing has been done to improve.

From David Gold's video-link above, if the play of the club-jack is the one referred to, certainly a hair-raising conclusion that "the play was made in tempo".
The value of videos
>"...helping determine who is at fault for slow play..." This is also an interesting point, I think. Just wondering, if a match (or half of a match) of, say, some 16+boards, exceeds the time-limit, it seems like a very tedious task to go through a whole video and sum ...
Defense against 4S preempt
@Martin Lindfors And still, how can responder know what to "expect" if the Double can contain both a stack of spade tricks, as well as a void in spade? Would you Double with both hands above? And what if you subtract a King from both hands?
