Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How should the director rule
Even though East is a passed hand?
How should the director rule
You asked quite a few questions. Here are my answers: "would it not be incumbent on west to base any further bids that are in accordance and consistent with what he believed his initial 3♣ bid meant..." Yes, West must not use his partner's explanation to wake him up ...
Mindful revoke
Ed, a theoretical question regarding Law 68D: If a defender claims (or concedes) by showing his hand but the claim is not accepted and all 4 players agree to play it out, does the claimer's partner get to use the knowledge of what claimer holds? After all "Laws 16 ...
SF Hotel
At our SF NABC Host meeting yesterday, the ACBL reps said the Marriott is sold out but the Westin St. Francis is still available. That won't help David's friend, unless someone who reserved at the Marriott is willing to switch over to the St. Francis. It is about ...
Continuations after Minorwood
When I play minorwood or kickback, I have a list of what applies and when. With one partnership we even considered that your 4NT is to play when playing matchpts and Q asking playing IMPs. Another detail is what to respond to 4m when holding a useful void. For that ...
Mindful revoke
"Bridge where they [rules about revokes] are never applied, and instead the players agree on a way to restore equity." Having encountered this when learning to play bridge in college, I can only say not following suit ruins the game. We had a player who revoked regularly; the other players ...
Mindful revoke
Once I claim, my policy is to never revert to playing out the hand. I would explain my claim with my hand exposed stating each card to play, trick by trick if necessary, and call the TD if the opps do not accept the claim. But I would never pick ...
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
Michael, you beat me to the same question. I cannot find any official Alert reference that would support item 5.
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
" Perhaps when I announce the (semi) forcing 1 NT I should add, “may have 4 spades.” If you do thenb you are making up your own announcement rules. Announcements are limited to just a few phrases, such as "15-17", "forcing", "may be short", "transfer". "May have 4 spades..." is not ...
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
Why not do it the other way around and follow the ACBL alert procedure? Pre-alert your system and alert what is alertable. If your side declares then you can remind them about the bids that were not alerted but are different. Over-alerting can be just as bad as under-alerting. If ...
