I don't know, but it would be great to see. BBO cannot show the expressions of the players. Are they smiling, deep in thought, thinking about where to eat dinner?

Third should have been the 10 if he has it.

Even if North's call was explained as a forcing raise I think it is worth another call.

Agree. these things are what made me bid 4 instead of 4.

This is hard to believe, but obviously true. Mr. Horton is not paraphrasing, but using word for word. The ACBL should remove him as a contributing author.

But Matthew, it is this instant feedback and analysis that delays the games too much. After the game with the recaps and hand records is the time for this, not during the game.

I absolutely hate it. Far too much time wasted looking at other results and wondering how they were obtained. For the same reason I hate the part that says N/S got 39% on the board and E/W got 61%. Both features encourage shooting later in the event.

Allow proxies. I will not be there, but would be glad to allow someone to claim they are there representing me. Member “X” would then count as 2, themselves and me.

If natural and invitational it would have been made the last round.

I once psyched against my wife and she was really upset, saying you do not psych against friends. My reply was that doing so would put her at a great advantage, knowing whatever I bid was NOT a psych.

Buddy, I agree. We have to decide if it is a true psyche. In addition to your examples I often bid 2NT over partner's weak two bid with nothing to try to slow down the opponents.

At the table there was some feeling that if East wanted to be in game opposite a randon 10 count, all of West's cards were prime values and certainly LOOKS like better than just an extra king. Ruffing value and an extra trumps.

Pard certainly could have 6's here. I try never to decide partner bid wrong. If he meant it for the majors it is his fault, but if he did not and I pull, it is my fault.

We have all been in this position many times, and guess right (and wrong). The closeness of the vote shows this. Assuming declarer has more than 2 and not the 10 or 9 they have a loser no matter what they do and might have just played ace and out a club.

West should never pass 5 knowing the double fit. Why did East not just raise 's initially instead of doubling?

This was a weak pair, and, if they play transfers, I am guessing they had not discussed interference. Rather than risk a misunderstanding of 3 or 4, North picked a call that could not be read wrong.

Peg, no, they apparently were not. I did not bother to look after 4 was passed.

At least you got partner off to the right lead. North bid 4 on x, AKxxxx, xxxx, xx and caught South with xxx,xxxx,AK,AKQx. Making 6 or 7 depending on the lead.

I don't really like 4's first because I am not sure what to pitch on the 4th one without knowing something about the situation.
