Questions for the directors
While the Laws are the same, guidelines on how to interpret them tend to be different.
Reserving Rights
The whole point of this is that you should call the director when his services are needed. There are two issues he might be needed to rule on regarding UI: 1. Was UI transmitted that could result in damage? 2. Did it actually result in damage, and if so, how ...
Reserving Rights
That 1975 wording seems very strange to me. Why would the TD need to reserve his rights, he has practically carte blanche? Furthermore, how could he adjust the score until the hand is completed, since he can't determine whether there was damage until there's an actual result? The ...
Mechanical error
Just simple ignorance. In almost all situations where RHO makes some kind of erroneous bid, you're given the option to accept it. I think this may be the one exception, so it's understandable that someone who isn't an expert on the bridge laws might not realize it ...
Mechanical error
If RHO changes his bid, and your original bid would be insufficient over the replacement, then if you don't change your bid to a sufficient bid we'll have to adjudicate your insufficient bid.
600k boards from Vugraph: lies, damned lies, and statistics
When playing with screens you're supposed to delay pushing the board through when there's been a jump bid, so you "waste" the same amount of time.
Question re bridge clubs and the ADA/ACBL regulations
The only way I can imagine a bridge club not being able to meet this legal requirement would be if more than half the pairs required a stationary seat. "the rest are my regular customers." Where is it written that "regulars" have to get NS? What kind of first-class a-holes ...
Slip of the Tongue?
Playing a card from your own hand is a more deliberate act, and there's enough time between when you pull the card from your hand and it hits the table for you to notice that you pulled the wrong card and take it back. This is only allowed for ...
Slip of the Tongue?
@Peg - "When the player has clearly either erred or rapidly attempted to correct a mistake, that should stand." That's essentially the idea of the traditional "in the same breath" criteria, although it doesn't have any basis in the Laws (although some think it's equivalent to "without pause ...
Contested Claim
Even if he can infer that you have the 9, he's not allowed to add that finesse to his line of play. Law 70E1 specifically says[quote] The Director shall not accept from claimer any unstated line of play the success of which depends upon finding one opponent rather ...
