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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I apologize for this question
How much not-length does it promise? I *think* the answer is "if 3+, say nothing, if 2 or less, alert". The director who said it's announceable would probably be rather less respected if people knew they said to announce.
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: J52 K93 J52 J642
I’ll take the liberty of assuming partner knew their system somehow and their bid means what it’s supposed to. If I’m wrong, at least it will be a good lesson on one more reason that pause is supposed to be there.
An incredible bid my partner made
"They will be playing a 'hit-and-run' system which allows extremely light opening bids on hands with as little as 12 points and occasionally a trifle less. Since attack is the best defense, especially against artificial systems, it is expected that these powder-puff opening bids will often rob the Italians of ...
Find The Human
West is a human, motivated in his play by greed (should east have the diamond queen instead of the king, a misguess could be induced) and hubris (surely the lowly robot saw my signal).
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
I think to interpret as Michael has, the comma would have to be differently placed, as in: declarer, or either defender at his turn to play ... It seems quite clear to me as written and generally interpreted.
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
L41C: "C. Opening Lead Faced Following this Clarification Period, the opening lead is faced, the play period begins irrevocably, and dummy’s hand is spread (but see Law 54A for a faced opening lead out of turn). After it is too late to have previous calls restated (see B), declarer ...
Finish this sentence
Among roughly ten different valid possibilities.
Michael Moschella's bidding problem: AQ AKT98532 --- AQ5
No: with spades and hearts, I can bid 2S (natural) over 1S. Showing natural hearts later may be problematic, but given five of them are offside, that’s not usually a problem.
Michael Moschella's bidding problem: AQ AKT98532 --- AQ5
I’ll take my chances. I think the chances hearts are 8500 around the table > the chances LHO has some pointy red cards pretending to be hearts = the chances they pulled the wrong bidding card > the chances they happened to psych and pick off my hand here.
Michael Moschella's bidding problem: AQ AKT98532 --- AQ5
Assuming there's no typo in the auction, I'll pass now and bid 4H later.
