Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Sorry if I wasn't clear. Color-coding the provided blank convention cards makes perfect sense. It's idiotic that if I print them for my partnership on a monochrome printer then I am required to highlight them in blue and red. The coloring is a reminder to the person filling ...
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
Can we please get rid of this idiotic coloring requirement? The color coding is a reminder to the pair filling out the convention card and is non-material to their opponents.
Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
Of course KQxx needs less to setup a trick than QJxx. It's a stronger holding. The primary goal on opening lead in these auctions it to avoid dropping a trick that could otherwise be won. I think leading from KQxx is more likely to drop a third round trick ...
Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
I don't think a diamond lead is very risky. It blows the suit only if dummy produces honor-ten-small or it crashes partner's stiff A or K. Q from QJxx is safer than K from KQxx because QJxx never produces two winners against a suit contract.
What are your pet peeves?
Completely intolerable.
What are your pet peeves?
Once in 7NT I claimed before the lead was on the table. I had a seven solid tricks in three suits. Partner had shown AQxxxx in the other suit and I had KJx.
What are your pet peeves?
Anyone who is offended by their opponents celebrating victory should not enter competitive events but instead retire to the bingo hall.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AQ75 Q96 KJ4 765
LOL. Yeah, there's that.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AQ75 Q96 KJ4 765
I have a maximum 4 call and all the key cards. I'm expecting something like KJxxxx A AQxxx x. If partner needs more than I have then they should have bid 5 or passed. I don't think partner is telling me what to lead if they ...
Deportment -- who's at fault?
It's on the ACBL convention card, which all pairs are required to fill out. So yeah, I do expect players to understand the CC. But it seems that expectation is unrealistic.
