I wonder how does this Algorithm thing works as far as sacrifices are concern. Perhaps people who play Individual games can enlight me, because i can't remember facing a sequence in which the GIB made a sacrifice bid.

Q lead at the table, i went down. Guess i should've figure it out and perhaps i would've, had i played the hand against an opponents i know to make a sound weak-jump overcalls rather than some pickup opps on BBO.

I'm more interested about the bidding though, especially if 3 is anyone's bid. Sure looks like it from the answers i see here.

Their “job”, as i see it, is to give an information regarding the “whole” match, not only one half of it.

When those kind of situations comes up, i DO discuss the other table's contract and play as well, but only if the same board is played by both rooms.

At the same time i use David Burn's practice when the score changes.

To Be honest, i've never received any complain from the Kibitzers on VUgraph by doing so. I think it's a good service that a commentator should be able to provide for the audience.

Anyhow, partner's hand was:

XXX
X
AKX
AKQXXX

the King of Spade was onside, so 12 tricks were available in Club, while 4S and 3NT were making, too, since the 3H bidder hold :

T9XX
AKJTXXX
X
X

and decided to bid “by the book” and not opening a pre-emptive with 4 cards in the other major ( I guess it worth a poll of it's own… isn't it? ).

at the table partner bids 3S and i bided 4S, making 11 tricks.

which essentially means opp overcalled 3H with XXXXXX since i look at the Q of heart in my hand…
Not likely IMO, but if that makes sense to you then pass is logical.

for sure not a penalty which can hardly makes sense anyway. it's a take-out oriented bid.

we agreed on playing support X through 2♥, otherwise no particular agreement. It's a new partnership.

Fantastic match indeed, even if there were times it got a little bit more tense, like here, 2H 48m into this video:

Anyone can work out what Brogeland said to Madala at 3:26:23 after he went down in 4S?

Hope to see the “Israeli derbi” of Rosenthal vs Mcallister.

So….
I led the Ace of ♠, and it was a complete disaster.
Dummy came down with:
KQ9XXX AQX QXXX —-
Declarer had: —- T98XXX JX KXXXX

He took 2 spades and 8 ruffs to score the contract.
We finished 18th in the RR and didn't qualify for the KO stage of the Israeli festival's teams event ( round of 16 ) . we missed the 16th place by a margin of 3 IMPS.

Thanks for the diary Oren, must admit it was a bit surreal for me to see Kuwait in front of team USA after 2 rounds… It's only the beginning though. I'm pretty confident that you'll qualify in the end. Hope the Israeli team will, too.

Tough day for Israeli bridge and of course for me as an avid supporter, but i'm proud to see how the IBF is taking responsibility and renounce 2 championships that Israel has won. I wish other federation would've done the same…
