How do you rule?
Can't everyone be heavy for rebidding 1N when there is no other good rebid? Doesn't everyone play that jumping to 3 shows a reason for doing it? I don't buy that any alert was needed on this auction. I don't buy that South was damaged ...
Score Adjustment
Had the director offered to East the opportunity to change his final call, and East still chosen Pass, then East's final action could be considered gambling and unrelated to the infraction... and apparent hope for a double shot. But, with no evidence the director offered that chance, it seems ...
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: Q754 A94 KJ75 A5
Lynn, My pass is forcing. Your 3 bid is not. So I get to bid again, and you don't.
Who Bid Too Much?
Only if double shows shortness.
Running Two session events
ok. Will have to trust you. That's not what the guides say. Says If I code a pair as 99, they will not count, and 98, they will. Presumably because 98's are drop outs and 99's only paid for one session. And of course no overall credit ...
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: Q754 A94 KJ75 A5
3 seems like it sets hearts which I don't really want to do. I figured if I pass then Q 3 over the hoped for 3, that would get partner to show life or not. If all partner can do is try 4 over 3 ...
How would you rule?
Whereas I don't find 4 to be a logical alternative, but for the table that bid it.
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: Q754 A94 KJ75 A5
not jumping to 4, we could have a slam. Lynn and I seem to be drinking a different punch again. He wants to tell partner he has nothing and play a part score, and I want to find slam. It would be useful to know what my asking bids ...
Do You Count Your Cards?
a Squeeze without the count. Nice.
