BW 2/1: Jumps to 3NT
I love the article by Fred Gitelman on dealing with standard issues in 2/1. There is a whole section called "The (misguided) principle of fast arrival". What we learnt in Bridge 102 is not necessary applicable for life.
Memorizing techniques
These 5 tips are very sensible, and have the overall aim (although it's not stated as such) of moving from "system 1" to "system 2" thinking in the Kahneman sense (see,_Fast_and_Slow).

Is using the rules (even obscure) always ethical?
It seems that WC players feel that waiving certain rights is appropriate, whether it is because they feel they will win anyway / they personally disagree with the way the rules are written / they believe it will disincentivise people from the game. Although the above is intended to summarise the views ...
