For next year, maybe. For this year, a 5-way tie. You can’t change the CoC in the middle of the contest. Whoever is the fantasy administrator should have thought about it before the contest started.

Not only is it quarky, it’s strange.

Not likely. That doesn’t seem to be an alertable treatment. And you could have asked.

Or you can take the near 100% line, assuming east has two diamonds, by playing to throw west in with the 4th diamond.

Bud, is your game really that clueless? I encounter an incorrect declarer once every year or two. I’m not including a N/S or E/W switch, but even those are rare. The last one I remember was a couple years ago when a player had the wrong side declaring 4, for two weeks in a row. And this player is no beginner. Other than that, I haven’t encountered any problems. Wrong contract or result, yes, but wrong direction? Not so much.

I don’t think it’s all that rare. I’m no expert, but I’ve done it at least a couple times, and I’ve had it done to me a couple times. And that’s mostly in club games.

But it’s still a nice play.

You should make your lead or put down dummy before writing in your scorecard or entering in the Bridgemate. It’s simply common courtesy. And it saves time. In fact, my club has that request posted.

I suppose if west is thinking about his lead, north could start entering, but should stop once the lead is made.

Rosenkranz covered this in his books. Look up Confi or Confit for some tools.

I vaguely remember this play from one of the first ACBL bulletins I received. That would make it around1970. I believe it was s story about an intergalactic tournament.

So those 18-wheelers that regularly annoy car drivers don’t exist? I’m sure the Teamsters with the semi-trailers they drive would disagree.

You have 12 dummy points and 7 losers, borderline gf. But you have 4.5 cover cards, which is certainly a gf. You’ll probably make game more often than not with that west hand and normal east hands.

But a bidding problem only addresses the first round. I’m just as concerned with subsequent bidding.

Synchronized? Hardly. Brownian motion is a closer description.

Perhaps his screen mate will be a klutz with his scalding hot coffee.

Good news. I found The Prisoner on Amazon Prime.

Me, too, but I did a refresh (F5 or the circle arrow) and it fixed it.

Marshall, any idea where to find The Prisioner on cable? (My all time favorite mini-series.) The box set is just too ridiculously expensive.

First we need to know if “director” refers to a TD or to a member of the BoD.
