Should District 9 have resigned?
David, we don't know (and perhaps never will) the thinking and the decisions behind the withdrawal.
Declarer's instant call of "play" as soon as dummy hits is often regarded as "good bridge" in many circles, both yesteryear and today. I would hope that it could someday be stamped out.
Fred Gitelman Advice - 4 - Splinters
Not so common, I don't think. (Splinters -- 13-15, normal, mini are a fascinating subject) Al Roth advocated pure splinters -- (1st or 2nd round control in side suits) -- simulations have shown that "normal" splinters divide rather evenly between "pure" and "unpure." Distinguishing between the two is another bidding option.
I believe Kevin's father has long been an advocate of a mandatory pause at trick one (maybe a simple 20-second sand timer).
Should District 9 have resigned?
Well, there could be extenuating circumstances. Like -- some members of the squad wanted to rest up for the BIG SHOW (Spingold). If so, can you blame them? Most of us follow the money :)
Should District 9 have resigned?
Chris, with respect, I question your comment. I think the poster (DC) made it clear he wasn't questioning the decision and offered a mathematical analysis. I should also add that I like Steve's comment below; I would be happy to withdraw (and have) when teammates concur.
District 21 Wins GNT
Sounds like a first. What was the score?
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21

Jim, can't make it but I'm sure Peg Kaplan as well as others can fix you up.
