“Wikipedia is rubbish.” I strongly disagree. Wikipedia does not deserve such a comment.

Since the laws state that bridge is played with 52 identical cards you are not playing bridge, you are playing a different game that only resembles bridge. There are, I suspect, no specific rules for that game other than “one card has a different back than the remainder”. It seems that, for that game, knowing the identity of that card should be just part of that game.

When (what year) did the indicated bidding take place?

I was told of a player who having revoked blamed his partner for asking “failing?” instead of “you have none?”

The link does not seem to work.

There must have been a very good reason the announcement was made on April the 1st.

What if only one of the two teams decided to pay? Obviously the match would not be played. According to D. Mamula's post the only way to get the masterpoints for winning or coming second in the event is to play the final. So now we could have a case where one pays, one does not win nor lose and does not get masterpoints either. Should the paying team be told to inquire if the other team has paid or intends to pay. This is a joke of ACBL proportions.

Maybe well-placed or even well-positioned honors.

I understand he was banned from the ACBL and some other bridge organization. He was not banned from the BBO. Leave the guy alone. If you don't want to play him, don't play him.

Most likely he fell ill right before passing this hand.

You claim there is no merit to this accusation.Obviously you must be prepared to present examples where B/L did not open third seat when nonvulnerable. Could you present a couple?

While I agree with the interpretation of good club fit, better than a 3C call the bid could also be played as a 2NT call having or lacking spade values per partnership agreement. If the latter the alert is of course necessary.

I went to the neapolitan club site too but did not see the bikini girl. I was impressed however by the last name of their Italian solicitor. I don't see how a man named Vinciguerra can possibly lose a case.

Team B decided to enter a tournament with well defined, and rather liberal in my opinion, rules regarding the timing of the matches. Team B for various reasons has been unable to schedule and play the prescribed matches. According to the opening post none of the opponents of team B contributed significantly to team's B failure to play their matches. Team B is now attempting to correct their failure to play their matches on time in a most unusual and unnatural way. I have no sympathy for team B.

Thanks for making a fairly routine hand so interesting.

While deciding not to play with this partner again was quite appropriate since you thought what you stated regarding his ethics, I believe that saying what you said at the table was very wrong.

It appears you have switched RHO and LHO in your diagram.
