about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

U31 junior event
Man, at this rate I'll get a chance at the junior career I never had. Just get the U60 in in the next fifteen years...
Todd Holes's bidding problem: --- T98632 KT92 A63

“OTOH, we should probably put a moratorium on entries using variations on "heart", like "heartlessly" -- they're too easy and common.”. ... he said knavishly.

"After trick one, I had two spades, three diamonds, and one club" said Tom halfheartedly.
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: AT3 K9532 AKJT 8
I admit to being surprised (but it’s early). It’s likely our hand, we have a good lead, and bidding 2H means you can play quite a few games in 2H because partner surely isn’t supposed to raise with most random hands like KQx QJx xxx xxxx? If ...
2NT-3!H;3!S-6NT
In theory opener could have bid 4S (or cue is) over 3H. My theory is responder was fishing for one of those hands for a grand, but having not gotten one signed off.
2NT-3!H;3!S-6NT
It’s almost the second one, but I think that responder already determined opener doesn’t have “the right hand”, so not really. Food for thought: what’s the difference between this, and 5NT followed by 6NT over 6S?
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
I voted 5 on this and I think if you tried to legislate against using opponents mannerisms, an impossible can of worms would be opened up— but, I think a game where such information wasn’t available in the first place (tablets, for instance) is also perfectly playable, if not ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
If the rules are that bad, we could instead change them you know...
What do you think of the director's actions?
Phil, Perhaps you should read the first comment in the thread, and then reconsider your position. :)
