about me

Started playing bridge towards the end of 2014. Love it. Trying to get good at it - if anyone is good at bridge - or at least a little less bad at it.

One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
Law 16 would not come into it if the director allowed the call to be replaced and 4H was the final contract. Law 16 would be relevant if either a) E told W the 4S call was intended (which eliminates the possibility of a misbid in E's mind) or ...

Good catch Ray.
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
My views: If W really called the director to find out if it was allowed, that's fine. If W called the director as a ruse to buy time and give E a chance to notice, then imo there should be a penalty. In real life the only way you ...

Roland, If the intention of the laws (which I concede is not clear) were not to allow West's behavior, I don't think that a player should be allowed to circumvent this with a break in tempo. This reminds me of a common situation I see with partnerships of ...
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
I have no problem with a player correcting a mechanical error but I am stunned that a player would be allowed to point out that error to his partner. It would never occur to me to do that, and if my partner pointed out my mechanical error I would think ...
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
When the hand doesn't match the explanation the presumption should be MI not misbid. They should have some evidence to support the claim that the bid is majors, else the director should rule MI.
Has anything changed since the elimination of the Stop card?
I was gonna say 98% to 98.5% :)
Partners Play Different Styles
I see nothing wrong with players use different judgement about which hands to open NT vs suits, within the legal limits. Of course their tendencies need to be disclosed, at least if asked. For example, I think it should be legal to play 13-17 1NT, and one partner could open ...
Partners Play Different Styles
Chris, I agree with your principles even if I think full implementation might create tok much complexity. Also fwiw there are many reasons other than professionalism why there are some bridge partnerships where one player is likely to take more tricks than the other while declaring.
