Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Trying in the club means explaining what they did wrong, and coaching them to do better. When the pair already was punished on the board for the actions, I am not required to add a penalty for that, and would not do it to an inexperienced pair. In a tourney ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
South's motive for bidding 4 deserve a procedural penalty depending on level of player and venue.
How light can your 1M responses to 1D be?
no, on the sample shape here, I required a King. It's risk reward. I do not promise any HCP, but that does not mean I bid on all sub-minimum hands.
How light can your 1M responses to 1D be?
If I had 6 diamonds, I would bid on zero points. The other interesting comparison poll is to give me spades instead of hearts. I would not need anything to bid spades. The problem with responding 1 light is there is no upside. It's does not preempt spades ...
Is this restricted choice? (WBF junior finals, board 11)
Insoluble because the correct play leads to going down when they started with Q98, no matter what order they play their cards, unless of course you are against an opponent that would false card less than a third of the time.
Is this restricted choice? (WBF junior finals, board 11)
8 the Q gives you the same insoluble problem. It will be right to hook the 9. So Q98 should definitely play the Q on the 2nd round. Funny thing is it's right to hook when you see the 98, so the falsecard is not needed if your opposition ...
Is this restricted choice? (WBF junior finals, board 11)
It really depends on my opponent. If my opponent is not able to play the honor on the 2nd round from H98, then playing for the drop is the right play. Essentially the strategy is the same as Kit's when I see the Queen or Jack, I will hook ...
three-ways that overlap 2 brackets
Sorry, that's too much. The better of your average or their opponents average is already pretty sweet. Presumably they are withdrawing because they have had abnormally low results. That suggest you would likely not do as well despite your superiority. Teams that have scored badly because they are bad ...
How would you interpret this bid?
Yes. It helps to play kickback, as this gains you a step, but that is not required.
three-ways that overlap 2 brackets
Why? Your comment above deals with withdrawing team being bad... reciprocal score deals with that. If the withdrawing team was giving everyone else 15 vps, then they are presumed to continue to do so. It's a round robin, so there is no notion of playing weaker teams as you ...
