GIB cost me big on Board #5 in the NABC practice round Sunday:

N opened 1C. E overcalled 1S passed around to N, which doubled. That was passed out.

I led my singleton C6. When N got in with the SK, GIB led the C7 for my ruff. So, I returned my H5 - having read the C7 as suit preference for hearts. GIB should have led the C2, showing preference for diamonds.

Because GIB "knew" it might be giving me a ruff - or did it(?) - seems it would be an easy fix to incorporate its giving suit preference in this situation.

Gib never uses suit preference signals.
Yes there are many situations where this would be useful.
Don't know how difficult programming these signals would be.
Sarcasm is a state of mind
