Would you DELIBERATELY take advantage of a penalty card?
I agree; was director called?
Is there UI here? Or just bad bridge
Oh, that hand. We played in the same sectional, opponents bidding: P 1 4... Now my partner threw in a 5D bid, and dealer went to 5 before her partner could double! Down 1.
Declarer had A K J 9 A Q 9 Q 9 A Q 9 3 when defense didn't playback a . Harrison squeezed them to make 5, tying for top.

All I've gotten (no names yet) so far is the comment, "I think you have software updates to do :)"
Adam Grossack's bidding problem: AK AQ93 A652 764
X We still play Fishbein, don't we?
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
When I read the headline, I was sure this was a post from Thailand or other foreign country.
Don Caplin's bidding problem: KQ6 K8 AKQT2 K63
Partner actually had a trap pass, but plays that double would be takeout. Thus my followup poll today (what his double would mean to you)
Director's Decisions
I was at the game, and the Director asked me what I'd bid with the N hand if partner passed in tempo (though I'm not a peer of North, "experienced Flight B"). I would have passed. I believe she rolled the contract back to 2S.
Politics and Bridge - Trump / No Trump
My name is actually Donald. When declaring, my partners used to delight when telling me to play low, "Donald, duck." Now they like me to ruff with "Donald, trump." (Also, I was "the Donald" before he was.)
