To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
[I]The key needs to be register with the Tournament organizers, but not disclosed to the opponents[/I] That only works if partner doesn't know the key either. So you each have our own secret key?
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
Ed, Could be. We could use Richard's suggestion, but with any key there may be disclosure issues (on Mars). Would a pair using a mixed strategy be required to disclose the key - "We overcall very light if we have the spade five and the heart seven." This is similar ...
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
Ed, A mixed strategy means that, with a given hand, you will randomly choose among A,B,C... with probabilities assigned to each option. The player might, for example, pass, overcall, or double with some hand, with equal probabilities. Then he could look at his watch an Dif the second ...
Cool Position After Creative Bidding
Curious hand. Two spade fours, and no nine. My plan was to play for the straightforward double squeeze, placing West with the only spade guard. If declarer keeps his wits at the end he will find the guard squeeze instead.
The ACBL and the 15 second rule

This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
If North started with spade king and no more than two diamonds and three clubs declarer still makes by winning the first diamond and playing A and a spade, even if the king doesn't fall.
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
There's a space on the convention card for indicating the strength of overcalls. There is even a box marked "very light style" you can check.
Assign the Blame for Reaching This Poor Slam
The slam also fails on a spade lead if W holds Jxxx, somewhat more likely than usual considering the 3 bid.
Assign the Blame for Reaching This Poor Slam
I agree that a big part of the problem is the lack of definition of South's 4 bid. What exactly did it say with respect to the trump suit and major suit controls?
Another Question for Mathematicians--well...Statisticians
I didn't shuffle any cards. I was describing the process used by the league, as I understood it, to generate one set of deals. To anticipate, I don't actually remember how I got the seed. Certainly I didn't get it by shuffling, since I generated a lot ...
