It really is interesting. My parents ran games in the ‘60s and ’70s. They were all evening games and all popular. Afternoon games were small except Weds. when the “doctors” played and Sat. Some of the people that played at night were as old as the people who now don't want to play at night. I wonder what has changed.

Other - The board was not legally shuffled and dealt. Therefore the board should either be thrown out immediately or shuffled and re-dealt.

“I can show you the ACBL regulations. Will leave it to others to find the WBF regulations.

Look up Section 3.3.4”

There is no 3.3.4. Perhaps you mean 3.4 “Accusations of unethical bridge conduct publicly made at an ACBL sanctioned event, not made privately to a tournament director or other tournament official.”

Reporting unauthorized information does not rise to this standard unless you specify that a player DELIBERATELY took advantage. Most UI situations create a judgement situation for partner. He/she has to choose an action NOT suggested by the UI if it is a logical alternative. This is subjective and experts do not always agree. If you don't believe me read some of the appeals casebooks.

In short, a violation of Law 16B1 is generally not an issue of ethics, a violation of Law 73C is. (this is an over-simplification but good for a general idea)

I would have chosen either a quiet 2H or 3C depending on method. However, given this auction I can't imagine why I would even consider bidding again. Presumably 4H was preemptive. When one takes a preemptive action, one generally does not have a “decision” in this situation. In any case, I am a heart short for my “normal” 4H bid. This would militate against bidding on in any case.

So the lead out of turn was accepted?

Lengthy postmortems by the opponents while you wait to play the next board and the clock is ticking down. People who play with the Bridgemate, their convention card, and check their lottery ticket while you wait for them to lay down the dummy.

Unless partner NEVER doubles a 1 opening bid with a strong suit and a huge hand, thie is a heck of a big position imo. Not hearing a redouble both increases the possibility of that kind of hand (slightly) and reduces the possibility of us being doubled in 2/

I thought I knew that name! But it couldn't have been Cincy 2000 - I wasn't there (Linda was). Linda and I are not together and Linda lives in Florida.

I don't think 5C is natural here over 4S but I'm not confident about that :)

If you don't bid on now, you are going to have to live with 3S if that's where they end up. Bidding now gives partner a clue that you have a very good hand.

If I felt I needed to bid again in this auction I shouldn't have bid 4H (in fact I might not have).

There was a system they used to use in the NYC Reisinger KO teams called “New England Seeding”. All the team captains got rosters of the field and ranked the teams.

The version of good/bad 2NT I play allows me to double to show the good heart raise with 3, I can bid 2NT followed by 3H with a good 4 card raise, and 3H direct as “competitive”.

I haven't been a club owner in many years. But in Unit 355 (my Unit in Northern Arizona) our funds are redistributed in the form of providing new playing cards (and other equipment occasionally) to clubs in the Unit. Club managers are quite happy with this.
