Psyches - and fielding them
With West's xx I don't think that partner can have as many as 9 hcp. I don't know if partner has Hearts and I don't care, I think the opponents probably have a game and I'm happy to let them play a part score. The ...
The Bidding Box #4 (ACBL Bulletin, June 2019)
Remember that this is matchpoints so that to get a 12 it must be both a great scoring contract, but also one that essentially no one will get to.
Plan your play @T2.
If both minors break 3-2 there is no problem. If trumps are 4-1 we can make if Diamonds are 3-2 with the 3 on the same side as the trump length; but must be careful and win one of the first two trumps with dummy's Queen so that we ...
Ruling, adjustment?
I would probably rule Av+ - Av-. Unless 100 would be better. I don't think that we should give an adjusted score when there has been a procedural violation unless it seems clear that only one or two results would have been likely without the violation. North has a 2-4-4-3 ...
Repeat Locations for Nationals
I don't think that you have thought about all the issues in converting volunteer positions to paid. Looking only at jobs done during the tournament, do you really want non-bridgeplayers at the partnership desk? "I need a partner with 1000-3000 masterpoints, who plays; Bergen, Flannery, and odd-even discards." For ...
Pass over redouble
Promises at least 3 cards in the suit just below opener's. If the auction is (1C) x (xx) you must be able to stand partner' spades.
Lose Final B to Garomov with me
The first hand is one of those fixes that you can only shake your head and go on. On the second hand your thought process should be, I have four Hearts, pass. Your offensive/defensive ratio is terrible, partner doesn't promise 4 in every unbid suit, all your finnesses ...
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
.3242575531422101. This will go down when I get the June Bulletin, probably later today. I think that Eric Greco has had years in which his platinum points were very close to, if not equal his total. The Blues we're first played in 1963; gold points started on January 1 ...
No inspiration yet
I win the 10 play dummy's top 2 trumps and play a spade to the King. I now have 8 tricks. If they reduce my club winners with ruffs l get more trump tricks.
How Angry Should We Be?
The eventual decision after the fact was to call it a compact KO, give the winners 10.45 gold and to give the 2nd and 3rd place teams match awards of 1.73 red. Of course this violated the compact KO CoC which specify exactly 4 players on a team ...
