Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
I disagree with the ruling because 4 making seems a more likely result on this hand than 3 making. If you were assigned -140, you should take the money and run.
You be the judge!
Note that if the poll had the players all bidding 5, and this resulted in 6 getting bid and made, I would not see a legal basis for requiring a pass 4. Pass has to be a logical alternative based on that polling for me to enforce ...
You be the judge!
I agree. But if a poll of this player's peers had everyone passing, I would have to toss my notions of what I feel is right.
You be the judge!
I simply don't believe that 4 denies a club control and a heart control. So what's the point in assuming we are off 2 clubs? Depending on style, it seems we are off a club control, or a heart control, but not both. I don't accept ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
As one who is both critical and ill informed, I stick to my concerns. 1) Promoting Monaco is failure. Working for two years on the problem and this is the result? You can have an "A" for effort all you want, you are not passing the exam. Sometimes results matter.
Alan Frank's bidding problem: KJ6 9 AK53 J6432
Henry, there is no risk in your first example. 1 2 3 3 4 4. Done. You might be able to create a hand that's a problem, but that was not one of them.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Crazy idea: How about if we replay the quarter finals through the finals of events in question back 10 years? These replays are by invitation only. Any ACBL, EBL, or WBF KO championship where a finalist was on a team including known cheats. Round robin format can be used to ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Randy, Mr. Zimmerman might not have known then, but he knows NOW. And he has kept his titles. My respect for the man is waning. I suspect the only way to influence his behavior in this matter is for him to realize that public perception of his achievements worsens every ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Note that some of the baseball heros were never proven, just accused. This is where I draw the line. It will be very difficult to convince me that the Blue Team should be stripped of medals, but very easy to convince me that FN and other known cheats should. For ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
Clobbered? No way. I don't believe for a second that the EBL is under obligation to promote known cheaters to a gold medal. None. You need new lawyers and new leadership.
