My view is that the penalty exacted was ridiculous and the “lawyering” of bridge embarrassing. Let's get at the table refereeing of bridge from round of16 on and eliminate appeals committees.

re: this nationals. I would like to note that I came here with no regular partners to play with. I played with Bob Feller, Ranald Davidson,Julius Sigurjonsson and Brian Maksymetz. All except Bob Feller were last second pickups. It was my distinct pleasure to note that they were all friendly thoughtful and courteous, and I had and am having a wonderful time. Special thanks to the Kents!! They also made my stay fabulous.

Many years ago, Henry was housesitting for his parents and to pass the time we had an impromptu swiss pairs at the house. I was playing with a friend, Duncan Jones, the Teukolskys were playing, Henry with a six- or seven-ish Paul, and a fourth pair whose names escape me.

During one hand when Paul was declaring against us, Henry was rambling on about great bridge events of the past, seemingly uninvolved in young Paul's struggles. At some point Paul led a middling (but high) card and called for the K from Kx in dummy.

Henry played low with no apparent thought- thus blocking the suit.

What was Paul to do? He crossed to the king and was forced to take the essential finesse back to his hand to make the contract.

Cheers Henry.

it sounds like the personal discussion between aviv and alan, both of whom are thoughtful and passionate, should continue privately.

Rereading the query (and responses), I realize that I worded the query quite badly. I am very eager to hear constructive criticism and I want to emphasize that my partner in all respects behaved perfectly. The disapproval with my choice of bids was seriously considered which is why I posted in the first place. Upon the rereading I realize I may have offended and this was not my intent!
