She was essentially an assistant director, she was not allowed to make rulings without consulting her superiors. It was a poor choice of wording, but in my defense this woman did not understand the auction after it being stated several times and didn’t even know the hands the people held when she made her ruling. The normal directors happen to be very good at this tournament and I would respect whatever decision they made.

By the way, it was not something I was proud of and what the author said wasn’t true. The director left the table and I asked the table to get a real director since it was not legal for the director to make a ruling, SHE was not a real director, the head director scolded her and apologized to us for her making a ruling. I was regretful of saying it once it left my mouth but I wish I would not be hearing of this on BW with a changed story.

Partner did bid 3D after a 2H rebid by the original opening, this hand got misposted, but she happens to be a mind reader lol.

At first I was thinking two places but I guess that isn’t necessary over 2H, I would assume lebensohl probably, but minors is possible.

I must abstain, since I was playing this. Although I kind of had a guess too… I was in 7S and they lead the T of clubs from JT tight so I had the bait of running the 8 too, but then once I thought about it, I realized I can just claim on a double squeeze lol.

Oh sorry, obviously they can't lol, still don't know if it is right to play a diamond, only time it is right if they have 4 diamonds. Partner did give suit pref but I all they really need to have is the Q I think. plus unless they have exactly KQTx we will still beat it… Partner might have stiff T

It looks like to beat the contract there are a few possibilities.
1. They aren’t void in either minor, so we have 5 tricks.
2. They have no entry to dummy to guess diamonds maybe so off 2 diamond tricks
3. They are void in diamonds and off the clubs.
Playing a diamond looks pointless, at first it seems like we may want to under lead but can’t really serve a purpose. In case in they are void in diamonds playing clubs is bad. It feels like a simple trump is right, I can’t see anything else. I feel like I’m missing something really obvious…

I understand what you mean Eric, although even if you end up going to bed at 3:00 am with the 1:00 and 7:00 schedule you can still get like 9 hours of sleep which seems to be enough. I don’t think it negatively effects the performance much as long as it isn’t too late especially for the younger ones.

There are some people from the YNABC, but most participants are too old, most people are on their 20’s or 30’s…

I have a similar story, when I was a complete beginner I played with three stars( Joshua Donn, Aaron Jones, and Alex Kolesnik) in the midnight KO. My dad opened 4 Major and I had like 15 points and 3 cards support, I assumed since he opened game, he had about 20 points and expected to make with little from me. So I bid 6… they doubled and the opening lead to had to choose which of his 3 aces to lead he lead 1 and it cashed, he chose the wrong suit even though it looked right and he pitched his losers on a suit that was now set up. Our teammates played in 6 diamonds doubled, it was cold so they scored it up. Win 22!!!!!

First of all, this is made mostly as a joke, I am not expecting a national event to end at 2:00. Second, some people want to be able to do stuff in there day other than playing bridge, which is really tough when it starts at 10:00.

OK, so I tried 2NT because I didn’t want to get past 3NT and thought it was too good for 3D. Partner had AQTxx KQx xxxx x so they took the first 6 club tricks. The real winners were the ones who gameforced so they could certainly get to game. This was a flat board, they were in 6 diamonds off 1..

The email sent, the fact that very few like Walter, and it might not be the board it is who the board is trusting info from. But other than that not really, it just seems evident to me when I read the email sent that they ignore the facts that we have given to them and trust others, I can’t see any other reason. Also, thanks for the respectful reply, I think my message was rude and I’m sorry.
