The 5 level belongs to: __________
IMO being in a force here is ridiculous, but many good players would in fact play this specific sequence as forcing - red/white, pre-empt raised to game, it is "obvious" they are sacrificing (until they aren't, of course). The issue I have is that I believe the opponents should ...
If you play professionally
That was my shot-in-the-dark guess as well.
Bermuda Bowl RR12: USA2 vs EGYPT
Ahhh well that explains a lot! Still can prob rebid 1NT if 4-5-2-2...
Every silver lining has a cloud
Hard luck indeed for Canada on this hand. Does anyone know how the D'orsi Egyptian declarer went down in 6 on board 22 of the same match? (there were some wild hands today, including a 4-9-0-0!). ...
Bermuda Bowl RR12: USA2 vs EGYPT
On Board 26, after 1 - 1 (showing a forcing NT), shouldn't opener rebid 1NT? I'm not familiar enough with Kaplan Inversion, but I would have guessed a big benefit is to be able to reach 1NT as a contract and avoid having to rebid a short ...
Bermuda Bowl RR6: USA1 vs. SWEDEN
Surprised neither South led a club vs 3NT, especially in the first auction. Of course, I've been reading the Bird/Anthias book with keen interest and they would have the club lead as a stand-out for sure.
Flipping for Winning
Getting a bit off topic but the penalty against Lexi Thompson was INSANE. That is how you lose spectators. She was penalized a full 24 hours after the (very petty, inconsequential) infraction, two strokes. Fine. That was crazy but what can you do. But she was also penalized an additional ...
Flipping for Winning
Reminds me of this old chestnut. A man and his dog venture to the local duplicate. Normally dogs aren't allowed in the club, but the man proclaims to the club owner that his pooch is quite the player. The club owner allows the dog to kibitz, skeptical of the ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Some events that were previously 5,000 have been 'bumped' to 6,000 (masterpoint inflation, anyone?), such as the "Mini Spingold" and "Bruce Life Master Pairs".
ACBL Cell Phone Policies & Penalties
Our 0-10k Mixed Swiss captain finished 2nd in the Open Mixed BAM by 0.5 of a board. That included a full one board penalty when a phone beeped (not rang; beeped)- after a player's elbow inadvertently turned the phone on. Really silly to decide national titles this way ...
