Club policy legal?
David, I would qualify your statement about psyches being part of the game - but not being identical to poker bluffing. There are constraints on psyches at the bridge table that I think do not encumber poker. (And I absolutely am not a poker player so sorry if I am incorrect ...
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: KQ96 A63 KQ53 T2
Steve - with the hand you show, I would have bid 3NT rather than 3 over 2NT. I like to play that 3NT is more than a minimum with (theoretically) no shortness - but - not as good as 3. Add in another queen to the hand held by opener and ...
Club policy legal?
How many of us have either experienced someone attacking their weak suit (assuming it wasn't led at trick one) while in a NT contract - or have done this themselves? And at times, it's a success. Would this be "taking advantage" of less experienced players? I read through the ...
Club policy legal?
Mike, I surely did not intend to imply this. Sorry if I expressed myself poorly. We psych when we think it is to our advantage and is done so in a legal way. Period. Yet, we can have quite different behavior after the fact. Some of us (irrespective of experience ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Max, it may well be that some people have more "tells" than others about what a pause indicates. And I can imagine that we have difficulty about ourselves determining which is which. But I know that even with some regular partners of mine, I can't tell if a pause ...
Club policy legal?
I understand that it can be very upsetting to newer players to have someone successfully psyche against them. I think in part because it is foreign to the newer player and they have no idea how to handle it, more emotion is created than it would be by an experienced ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Eddie Kantar, anyone, anyone? Unfortunately, the bridge world has too many with the initials "EK"! Mercifully, my parents did not name me Erica (LOL!!!!! of course; no danger of me ever being included with such elite company, irrespective of my intials...)
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Max, here is my concern. I think that more than a small amount of time, there really is disagreement as to WHAT "a call or play ... demonstrably suggests". My partner takes some time prior to passing. Was he thinking about raising but not sure he had enough to do so ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
"Obviously I felt obliged not to lead a club and inadvertently found the only lead to beat them. h\e was asking knowing it would pressure me into leading another suit." Yet another version of "Upside Down Weasel."
Full disclosure?
I fall back on these beliefs. IF the laws state that the opponents are supposed to alert or pre-alert, they should. And if they do not and their opponents are harmed, then those harmed should get some relief. IF the laws don't require alerts, then either the opponents have ...
