Steve Stewart's bidding problem: AT J62 AKT752 K3
Passing could be right, but I'm not risking a double game swing.
Montecatini
Sounds like the National in Pennsylvania some years back. Played in a tent. Could hardly get there.
Five percent of one matchpoint
I once temporarily won the district NAOP by .02. After a scoring correction we lost by .48.
Paul Weinstock's bidding problem: AJ65 J2 T6 98532
Assumed the vote for 1S would be unanimous. Wrong again.
Input from Players and Directors Requested
What did 3S show.
Logically you should return which Red?
Spade Ace.
Roland Voigt's bidding problem: K86 A843 A2 AQ93
What is the objection to the double. Looks routine.
1!s vs 2!s after Neg X
I have friends who lost a national event on this auction. Came up on the last hand. Played 3S -1, when +110 would have won the event. Doubler thought 2S showed extras.
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I find the arguments against withdrawing totally unconvincing. If a team is getting blown out, and wishes to withdraw, what's the problem. They can play if they wish, withdraw if they wish. Who am I to care?
Steve Stewart's bidding problem: AJT842 J9 KQ84 7
I double to maximize any plus. I doubt that it will affect my match point score if they make it.
