A difficult ruling?
I was that East, and nothing was said until the auction was finished and my partner was leading ( I honestly can't remember if his lead was already on the table). North then said that his partner should have alerted and that they were playing transfer responses. This was the ...
Dennis Bilde is 2017 Player of the Year
I kibitzed Dennis for a couple of sets in the EBU Spring Fours last year, and it was such fun! If there were more players like him, Bridge might even become a spectator sport. Congratulations :)
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)

Captains meeting
I found it amusing that after the electronic toss-up confusion, not one of the four officials had a coin in their pocket!
Severe Time Penalty?
This seems harsh. When playing in the second day of the Roth Swiss, one of our opps turned up 20 minutes late ( having got the start time wrong). My partner informed a director after waiting for about 18 minutes but was waved away as they had other scoring/assignment issues ...
Mid-Chart Changes
Many thanks to Sol Weinstein( the director I pestered), for taking the time and trouble to find the necessary defence (written, I believe, by Chip) and make several copies for me.
