Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
I think it very clearly should apply to the case in this post where my partner bids constrained by UI. I have not thought enough about the other cases to be confident. My second paragraph might be wrong. It would make sense that 73D1 only apply when communication between partners ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
I am certainly reading law 73 more broadly. I think at a minimum it prohibits the use of tempo in communications between partners. I don't see how it matters under 73D1 and some other parts of law 73 that law which partner broke tempo if that BIT was used ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
On further thought I think my parenthetical is wrong. Law 73 is about communication and I think it only applies to communication between partners or with opponents, not communication to my future forgetful self.
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
The deduction from the BIT is not authorized. See 73D1. I view this very slightly differently from Jeroen. The BIT is unauthorized as the basis of communication with my partner. Thus any inference from my partner having seen it is unauthorized. I don't think knowledge of it is unauthorized ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
Ray, Law 73D says that only opponents can draw inferences from your tempo. You seem to think that means partner cannot. I am not sure where yoh get that idea. To me it seems clear that you also cannot. Of course it would not be useful to draw inferences about ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
If your call is clearcut based on 18-19 and a good diamond suit, there is no issue. If you you think it is just barely percentage to pass, but its right to bid 4D if partner had 6 diamonds, then you have a problem. Partner having been in possession of ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
This may just be an exercise in semantics, but in your unethical partner example, there is also issue is with taking advantage of the tempo. I can't come up with an example where your partner's ethics one, without eg a BIT, create information that you shouldn't use ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
Ed, Nobody objects to using the knowledge that partner is ethical. I object to combining that knowledge with the knowledge of your own BIT, which effectively results in using your tempo to communicate. I think that is a clear violation of law 73A1, B1, and D1.
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
Kevin I think there are two issues: 1. Can you use thie information. I am in total agreement with you that you can't, but I am less surprised than you that not everyone agrees. Despite the disagreement law 73 seems to make this clear in multiple places. 2. Is ...
Can you have UI generated solely through your own actions?
I would never need to use my tempo to learn my own thought process, which I already know. But I might use my own tempo to learn about what information my partner had when they took their call. This inference is, in my view, prohibited by law 73D1. If you ...
