Screens don't solve all problems
That does not seem right to me. Of course, we do not *know* why partner bid 5 slowly. But it seems much more likely that he was considering a weaker alternative than 5 (e.g. a forcing pass if pass is forcing), than a stronger alternative.
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: AJ T KJ987 AK642

In The Well: Chip Martel

Implicit partnership agreements with new partners
Michael, what you describe falls under "mutual experience". If that's what the authors of the law had meant, they wouldn't have had to include "awareness" in 40A1a.
Implicit partnership agreements with new partners
I am disappointed by the results of this poll, and surprised that 48% of voters think "no agreement" is an acceptable explanation in both cases. I think this is clearly against the sprit of full disclosure, and also against the Laws. Let me explain. First, let's consider the spirit ...
