That is where my finger went first. But then my BBO bot told me 3N was Unusual.

I'm allergic to nuts. If someone was chomping down on almonds and refused to put the nuts away, I would refuse to play against them.

I've been in this situation, but my opponents of always put the food away.

Yes.
One of my regular partners is an under 21 junior. We have multiple times had the same local teacher call the director on him for his tempo and aggressive bidding. Since the directors and teachers are friends, the anti-junior bias is more than I will deal with again.

Why not incent club owners then? Something akin to rakeback. E.g. if you recruit x number of U26s, you get back the ACBL table fees for the month.

“Fast forward to a casino. I am playing blackjack. I have 16 v 10 and I say “surrender”. Dealer takes half my bet without thinking about it……”

What you have described here is EXACTLY what APs do. It's not illegal. Casinos can't sue you for your winnings.

Ridiculous decision.

How did the casino NOT know Kelly Sun?
Why were they not suspicious that Phil Ivey was playing with “The Queen of Sorts?”
At the least, why didn't they start calling around and ask about why Ivey is playing Punto Banco with “an Asian, female companion?”

Last question: What if Ivey lost money? (See where I was leading now?)

Or maybe they come from regulated markets, which allow for democracy to thrive?

Free markets are an economic system, not a system of government.

10:30 and 3 sounds terrible.
My ideal would be to go for a decent run, have a soup and salad lunch then play two sessions starting at 1 with a one hour break in between. Probably eat some fruit during the break.
Dinner, sleep repeat.

Peter Hollands: How hard is it to broadcast on Twitch with a Mac laptop? It was great to watch you on Twitch and I hope you do so again also. Perhaps you can teach some of us to be Twitch producers? It would be a pretty nice way of getting more exposure to the game.
Best,
Dan

What happens when someone playing on a vugraph match goes to the bathroom while being dummy? Can they hide a cell phone by the toilet like in some chess incidents?

Which of these are legal on any ACBL chart? “Systems based on very light openings or other highly aggressive methods or preempts.”

No. This was made clear as one of the special traits of this tournament.
