1. Yes (I'm that moderator: D).
2. Occasionally yes. Therefore it is good to give all information.

EBL alert policy is for events without screens?

Conditions of Contest

These General Conditions of Contest (GCoC) are the standard regulations which apply to

all European Bridge Championships and other tournaments

held under the auspices of the European Bridge League (EBL).

The EBL Eligibility Code, the EBL Disciplinary Code, the EBL Dress Code, the EBL Anti-Doping Regulations, the EBL Systems Policy, the EBL Alerting Policy, the EBL Policy on Psychic Bidding, the EBL Bidding Box, Bridgemate and Screen Regulations and the EBL Code of Practice are part of the Conditions of Contest for every European Bridge Championship and are annexed to GCoC.

Imho problem is different. Is not oddly that maybe every country has other rules than central rules? Do you know about other sports where this is going on? Let's imagine soccer, where the offside in England is valid everywhere, but in Netherland at the penalty area is non valid.

And what about international tournaments or Europe championships like Ostende now? I assume in championship the EBL policy is in use. And players have to reorient from national rules to the international. Is it reasonably?

BTW: our alert rules are very close to the EBU / ACBL rules.

@Thomas

Agree, 3H is propably trial bid.

But analysis says: hearth support is no problem. The key problem is spade support.

With 4 cards spades you play a good game, but with 3 cards spades game is bad.

This mean: trial hearth bid is not properly used with these cards.

PS. This is just a hypothesis, I do not know the exact system response to the trial bid and other invites in their system.

Statistical results with Deal 3.1 program. 500 deals generated.

If opener have 11-13 points, balanced hand with 4-5 diamonds, with exactly 3 spades and without 4hearts, then (double dummy) chance for spade game is 21% (4hearts 15.3%).

If opener have 11-13 points, balanced hand with 4-5 diamonds, with 3 or 4 spades and without 4hearts, then (double dummy) chance for spade game is 29.6% (4hearts 18%).

If opener have 11-13 points, balanced hand with 4-5 diamonds, with exactly 4 spades and without 4hearts, then (double dummy) chance for spade game is 52.4% (4hearts 18%).

Maybe, but I did not want to test the logical alternative.

Richard, I would be glad, if you answer the following questions:

1. Is agreed hesitation after 5 hearts unauthorised information?
2. If yes, what this UI suggests?
3. If N bid 6 spades, which is your decision?

Thx :)…

Richard, you are a commentator for the EBU Appeals Booklets.

I assume you know the definition of a serious error and rule 12c1(e), which say about extremely serious errors.

In your opinion, is the club (10) lead in this deal a (extremely) serious error?

Will there be obligation (as the fight contra “sexist” and “discrimination”) kibitz (for example on BBO) all championships equally?

I agree. I add that my question (“Someone may help me with finding a relevant reason etc..”) was a rethorical question. I have been a programmer a lifetime. I am convinced that these shortcomings on EBL/WBF web sites are the result of a monopolistic approach typical for central institutions. They are the consequence of insufficient pressure from the bridge public and national associations (sry, my english is poor, but I hope that these words makes sense).

Human psychology is unchangeable. People want to know the value of their individual contribution. It motivates them to better individual performances. Yes, in some cases, this can be the opposite.

However, it is not the task of the organizers to make such a situation completely suppressed. Leave it on the players, on their social and game inteligence. Players know best what is good for them.

Tx for specification. I was only once there. That was when two printers worked. Next time I was only in the drinks/foods and toilets queues (bitter experience for full life), I skipped the results. I'm a player, right :)?

PS. In our local tournaments, after the end of the session, the referee divides frequency and hand diagrams. Without a problem, one for 50 pairs. The referees are for the game, not the other way around.

Sorry, but I do not need a database. I call for complex results on the website.

Pdf diagrams here, the results there, the frequency of the other - is the goulash.
