Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Misinformation happens very often
No problem. Had north actually had + and east holding been a little better (yes I find the grandslam leap too aggressive :)) then north could have been waiting to Lightner double with a diamond void and my partners action would be considered brilliant. Not this time :)
Misinformation happens very often
North had shown + at least 5-5. That was how south interpreted and explained the bid. That is why he bid 6 to make and why west did not take 7 as a natural bid. South did explain how he came to the conclusion the bid showed ...

I had to look it up Rashomon=alternative, self-serving and contradictory versions of the same incident. I guess you are right there
Misinformation happens very often

Misinformation happens very often
So you agree that south is bidding 6 to make since he thinks partner has +. Still you feel I have to guess what 4 means? If this is the way you play in the US please do not alert a bid unless you know the meaning ...
Misinformation happens very often
Hi Michael, for some reason both TD and appeals committee agree that I have to interpret the explanation I got as +. Do you really think differently and how would you instruct your clients to act in this situation? In my opinion there is probably the same explanation on ...
