Zenith Daylong Robot Tourney at BBO, 17th June 2022

I often play the Zenith Daylong Reward event on the BBO. It is a robot event with robots sitting in three axes while the human participant plays as South. There are 16 deals.  There is 1BB$ entry free that effectively keeps away many casual players.  Eighty percent (80%) of the collected entry fee is given away in prizes of BB$ so there is something to play for however small that reward may be. You also get some BBO points for finishing in the leaders' list.  It takes me about 30 minutes to finish the set in one go.

This article links to a video that discusses two defences against a standard 1♣️ opening, based on the analysis presented in the third video of this series. I also discuss the bidding on Board 21 of HCL 2021 QF with each of these methods. It turns out that the bidding is a cinch.

Bridge Policy E03: Is Club suit the longest suit when a player opens Standard 1♣️?

The 1♣️ opening in Standard American is an opening of convenience. Hands that don't fit in other more well-defined openings are opened with 1♣️. The 1Nt opening takes care of Balanced or semi-balanced hands with 15-17 HCP; with 5+ cards in a Major suit, one opens 1♠️ 1♥️; and with length in Diamonds, one opens 1♦️. The 1♣️ opening covers all other 12-21 HCP hands. What does that mean for opponents?

Bridge Policy E02: A difficult bidding problem arises as Black suit cards are interchanged.

The batsman in the picture is Sachin Tendulkar. He is perhaps the all-time best batsman. The picture shows him being symbolically handcuffed while playing. What will be the result?

RUIA 2001 final, INDIA BLUES vs FORMIDABLES

The first session began almost o­n time. Two of the side rooms at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose indoor stadium provided the venue for the first session. The semi-finals were played under the stands of the Eden Gardens, the famous cricket stadium. There was a VU GRAPH for the knockout rounds, however, the equipment could not be moved before the start of the first session, so the first session of the final was not o­n the VU GRAPH.
