At what stage does the declarer have to “give the diamond”…rules 68-70 of bridge deal with disputes with claims.
I think the expression in the laws includes “normal lines play” which is covered in these rules….If it is an expert player who has forgotten the trump count, would be most reluctant to give a favourable view on diamonds. Expert should also know claim rules….Ask Laurie Kelso, a Wbf Director and a Victorian like poster of article…for his ruling…That would be good enough for me

I gather that you visited Australia some years ago under the pretext of a meeting with Australian Olympic Committee President John Coates to seek the AOC acquiescence for the Australian Bridge Federation to be recognised by AOC.

My understanding was the meeting did not go well and you were met with a firm rebuff by Mr Coates with regard to the AOC support of ABF becoming a member of the AOC and of any Australian support at the International Olympic Committee should Bridge be regarded as a sport of any sort within the Olympic movement.

Mr Coates remains as President of the AOC and as a senior member of the IOC since 2001.

Could you confirm that my understanding of the meeting with John Coates is accurate and what do you see as the future for the ABF in any dealing with the AOC or for that matter with the ABF and the IOC when there is such a major obstacle in place being AOC President John Coates

thank you for participating in “The well”

Having read the paper work i am reminded of the words of legendary Oil Man Red Adair

“If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur”

As Bahar was hired to meet the specification of the job of a professional CEO, it appears he was dealing with amateurs in the ACBL………….which has cost the ACBL a rather large sum of money

Mr Maestro Burn, if I learned one thing from this, is to explain in full the detail, on the premise that I am playing with persons who will always be lesser in their understanding…that dummy was always high, how can it matter whether or not the J ♠️ Is high ? Somewhere in WBF laws 68-70 it deals with this and uses the world “normal” which is defined, and out of this, the director has decided under what is normal it would not be irrational, for my level of ability , to forget to ruff?… which is then is a subjective view of my ability….

What is your view of laws 68-70?

Discussion only seeks to understand

It is N on lead with…..who can see the dummy …. so can there be a line of play that would be rational for NS to win a trick…..do not WBF laws 68-70 deal with claims……North is a strong player, and the highest ranked of all the players at the table

It has already been established earlier all trumps have been drawn …. no dispute on that … seems an issue that if spade is lead towards dummy, you forget to ruff or if a diamond lead I would not let it run to kJ ..essentially normal lines of play that would be irrational not otherwise….

Yes North was to play and cards tabled and would see a spade would be ruffed in dummy or a diamond going to dummy

I just though it was so obvious that it required no explanation and only common sense and we were playing strong opponents……

As an aside, that bridge was part of the Asian Games is in no small part due to lobbying of the games organisers that governments alone were not responsible for. Whether this is good for bridge is for each of us to decide. It was not a disadvantage in being part of the IOC family when the organisers of the Asian Games made the decision to allow bridge to be a games participant.

So this is top two pairs in event …. so no inferiority complex with either partnership…
1c is an unlimited opening save not a balanced 14-16 NT….? Is 1S a systemic transfer bid? So W had to bid 1NT for systemic response ? Now E bids C which presumably is a specifc D transfer bid, presumably there was no way to bid a D transfer naturally over 1c opening without bidding 1S first?
After this W super accepts….and E takes chances….no problem
NS are not novices I guess….there were system cards for NS to look at ? N or S could ask at any time for explanation…so no sympathy

Communication can be so simple if explained properly…Would not have it been possible to expand on the simplicity of a 1 level opening bid with some hand types to illustrate the message ??
