Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Was I injured
When E/W produced their system notes, did either say the notes were incorrect, out-of-date, or generally ignored? If not, then they imply that their notes are accurate. On that basis, you have MI. If they had no system notes, then as others have pointed out, the assumption is MI ...
Congratulations Greg Lawler
Congratulations! (The number of congratulations in this post is significant....statistically!)
UI or not?
Timo, you are certainly correct that the majority of BW posters think only along the lines of experts and have little regard to what C players expect. I doubt many of them play pro with clients who are just casual bridge players. But as I said before, only you know ...
UI or not?
"SOS redoubles and stolen bid doubles belong in the same garbage bin." I always heard that, at least about stolen bid doubles. However, did you read Kit's column this week? Or did you throw it in the garbage bin?
UI or not?
As North's partner, you are the only one who knows what type of player North is, 1000 MPs notwithstanding. I would have expected such a player (typically a Silver LM), to know that if 3 DBled is making, it is likely to be a matchpt top or nearly ...

Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
Alan, good analogies, but what about rules that are hard to comprehend, such as the infield fly rule? Many casual fans will never understand that rule. And what about a runner on 2nd stealing signs from the catcher and relaying them to the batter? Because of that, catchers resort to ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
"Basically, what I advocate will catch all cheats and a few innocents. But the innocents will rapidly learn not to break tempo in tempo-sensitive situations (thus actually reducing, not increasing, the number of director calls)." The innocents, especially the newer ones, will rapidly learn to leave the bridge table and ...
Xmas party bridge
"You may look at your hand for 10 seconds only, close it. Now bid. Play normally." Even I can, and usually do, just that. It just takes a little practice. Playing normally.... now that's harder! Oswald Jacoby could spread his hand, look at it for about 2 seconds, put ...
Xmas party bridge
Too bad the stop card was eliminated from most bidding boxes. Makes it hard to use it to stop the auction. I do wonder about bidding to the 4 level. What happens if you make an insufficient bid and don't correct to a comparable bid, or you make an ...
