I played against Eddie Kantar in the Reisinger so many times in the tournament. He said they kept calling the round and the same pair kept coming back.

Agree with what Tom said. Even if no undos captains could have resolved things. Was an obvious misclick.

People can only think you’re stupid until you open your mouth and speak. Then they’ll know for sure.

I love that they named a University after a cheese. With apologies to Dave Westfall.

There’s a bias to only remembering good results. AKJx Kxx xxx xxx. Everybody’s 1S in 3rd seat.
The entire auction so far is P (P) 1S (2H) X (P) back to you. Ugh. Your bid?
Not much better if they overcall 2 of a minor.

Al Roth playing with a lady partner. Decorum still rules but it was indeed a funny tale.

John will remember a team comparison. Minus 420 lose 10. Minus 100 lose 12. Plus 680. Lose 13. And on it went. Finally plus 110 lose 1. “Sorry, that was all me”

I believe the “real question” is why would anyone open this hand 1N? Chris Compton is an established professional player. I doubt very much that if he was playing with Bob Hamman (as he has done frequently) that a 1N opener would be considered. To my way of thinking this opening was completely out of line. It's disrespectful to teammates partner and the opponents. It reeks of boredom.
Was the bid legal? Absolutely. Was the bid wise? I have voiced my opinion and others may do the same.

First promoted in the 70’s by Ira Rubin. At the time I think a 3rd option was strong and balanced.

Suppose you bid 2D showing D and a higher but you actually hold xxxx J9xxx xx xx or similar. Your partner holds xx xx AKJTx KTxx for his 10-12 NT. The opponents balance over your 2D with 2S and everyone passes. The D suit layout is 5224 and you get an overruff. How on earth can the opponents know that your partner was systemically barred from bidding? As David Burn likes to say “Just tell them what you play” 2D Shows D and a higher. Often just fooling around. Partner is not allowed to bid to the 3 level.
That’s your agreement and the ops are entitled to that info.

I’m interested in the run out methods. When exactly do the opponents learn that opener is never allowed to correct to the 3 level no matter what partner bids/shows?

For everyone who enjoyed Kevin’s post, I urge you to read “Reluctant Gigolo” by John Fraser.
John is a bridge player, but his book and tales detail life on the high seas as a paid escort. It’s not what you think, or maybe it is. John’s actual job is to be a single gentleman and dance partner for unattached women who like to dance. As I recall John was at least 70 when he embarked on this adventure.
