How do you rule
I'm still anxiously awaiting a "convention disruption" freak to call the sheriff because his pair got a good result from a system forget. When it happens, I'll shout "hallelujah", immediately become a better bridge player than ******* (insert your own hero), cure cancer and establish the GTOE, while simultaneously ...
Mindful revoke
IMHO DB is one of the most reasoned posters on this site. I believe he is ABSOLUTELY right on this occasion. He stuffed up and takes his beans - yes, that's how I want to play the game and Mike Ma adds the correct colophon

Dead god, I wish I was a one eyes chauvanist

The OP staes clearly that it was the actual agreement. Why would you question that? It's not exactly ambiguous. . I realise that DB has a very strong view about misexplanations/misbids but there's got to be a point where we actually accept the conditions specified.
Sir Everton Weekes
i never saw bradman but i did watch weekes, tendulkar, aamed, richards compton, and for me, the best i have ever seen was peter may. my father, who played first class, always placed hobbs above bradman but i suspect that was more chauvinism than reality. by any measure - note measure ...
