  • @Tag said: The actions of detaching and facing imply deliberate intent. The Laws referenced don't say anything about a card that becomes detached and falls to the table, thus facing itself. It is an exposed card, not a played one. How does t…
  • @Tag said: @Vlad... Laws 45 A, B and C define what is a played card. None of these include a card accidentally dropped. Most odd that anyone would suggest that the second card was played. "Each player except dummy plays a card by detaching i…
  • Re 1 Club opening: EBU requirements are to announce it as "could be short" - The assumption being that opponents should know enough about the game to ask. Re 2D opening: Almost certainly that is not their strongest bid: Their strongest bid is proba…
  • @SteveMap said: Love the Mollo comment. HH once again. Possibly ChCh or, more likely, his cousin: I think that virtually all other Mollo's characters upheld - to a greater or lesser degree- the ethics of the game. Certainly RR and HH would …
  • Oui - C'est la vie! I had a similar circumstance on Sunday - took some time to explain to the opponent that all they were entitled to know was that the other pair didn't know what they were doing.
  • Oh I know that - the question is: is the player who was in receipt of the UI from partner's reaction allowed to know it from seeing the 1NT card on the table.

  • @DavidDunford said: I’ve known people say that it’s not been discussed but, upon becoming declarer, say “yes, I thought you meant ...” Since the usual question is “what do you understand by your partner’s bid” can we not push for a respon…
  • I must admit I would have thought the specific instructions for the correction of an IB (Law 27) would take precedence over the general allowing of acceptance of a changed call.(Law 25).
  • One of the clubs I frequent ask for one of the two completed score cards as well as the paper travellers as an insurance policy. As I am about to step up to the plate to act as the scorer, I am all in favour of this - although I might spend some ca…
  • OK the strong bid is OK by definition (b) At most one from the following four options: (i) One or more meanings which all show at least four cards in the suit opened, or [Fail] (ii) One or more meanings which all show at least five cards in the s…
  • .> @Mitch said: (... the West hand only has 7 playing tricks...) I'm not sure I'd even consider that to be seven. Without East's J10 of diamonds, West would only make 6 tricks on this hand. Yes - but people like to show 'stron…
  • The 2 Club opener can be ', 23-24 points balanced(ish), weak two in diamonds, 8 playing tricks in an unspecified major or 9 playing tricks in an unspecified minor: if the suit isn't clubs then it may not be strong".
  • I played in a 22 All V All on Sunday - Jannerson interwoven for 11 rounds then a standard Mitchell missing the first round, last round arrowswitched.
  • @VixTD said: Weejonnie: "If the director rules that is was a fielded psych (red) then you rule 60-15 as an Artificial adjusted score - you don't try and work out what should happen at the table. If you rule it as an amber psych then there is n…
  • I would probably regard this as a deviation - an extreme one, but the hand was weak - probably by less than a King - and I suppose might be made on 6 hearts - so the suit is only one out. I don't think South fielded it - the hand is balanced (which…
  • When can't you ask questions? What questions can you and can't you ask? When exactly should the director be called in the following circumstance? ... ... looking at words like 'immediately', 'at once' 'forthwith'. etc What happens if one side …
  • @VixTD said: Tag, the board turned out well for the psychers, but not entirely because of the psyche. South had AK1076 K42 Q J975 and North 93 - AK106432 KQ42. I've no idea what possessed South in the bidding, but they claimed that East ought …

  • I would say that the hands are similar - both show opening values and a diamond suit. That is similar enough for me. (the difference between 4+ diamonds and 5+ being irrelevant) If partner bids 3NT because he suspects that the overcaller only has 4 …
  • I am not sure how "double was very weak" is a psych - A double merely suggests that the player 'wishes to compete and invites the responder to describe their hand. Partner is expected to bid ...' Blue Book 3H3. 7 E 2 Defence to Natural, Non-Forcing…
  • Opposite an Acol 2 - the usual negative is 2NT, I believe, and a single raise is positive and usually includes an Ace and a king and is game forcing. "Really Easy Acol Bidding" - Sandra Landy pp EBU! Whether such an agreement (in the eyes of the 2…
  • Although of course they should then read 54E and then law 24D
  • @Johnathan said: Law 55A - at some clubs, that I have played at, the directors state that declarer's lead out of turn from their hand may be picked up as they are declarer. When challenged they say it's opening lead out of turn? Presumably…
  • @Tag said: There's a small pager for the TD to have with him. There's also a transmitter which plugs into the USB port of the computer and then one of the buttons on the Bridgemate becomes "Call TD". If that is pressed then a signal arrives at…
  • It would seem to me that the second call out of rotation (LHO) can be accepted or not. if it is accepted then the person who had to repeat the call has lost his turn (Law 16 and law 26 applies). If LHO's call is not accepted then it is cancelled - a…
  • @Tag said: There's little question that there's a PP due but can the director give an assigned score by way of rectifying an irregularity if the behaviour has given the offending side a good score? If 4C-1 gives a top then they might still be …
  • I think that has some merit - obviously only in the specific case mentioned. Note that even though the call is treated as being legal, it was, at the time it was made, an irregularity so 72C would apply. (Man management may be called for here)
  • I use Law 73C1 in such cases. However it is important to find out whether 'Pass' forces opener to take some action since 16B1b ensures we don't try and impose our own 'bridge logic' on the offenders.
