Wrong information?
Oh, I forgot about the screens, so South was explaining his own bid that time. Did North ever find out how South explained it, and offer a correction? It seems like North thinks this double is "cards".
Wrong information?
@Giovanni I think South did take that into account. A double on the first round would show 3 suits. Now that the opponents have bid 2 suits, the double "obviously" shows the other 2. That's how North explained it when South made a similar double 15 minutes earlier.
Wrong information?
The explanation given by North on the earlier board is "evidence to the contrary". Unless the agreement depends on vulnerability, which might have been different.
Tempo/UI
The law says that you're restricted from making a bid that's suggested over a LA. If there's no other LA, you're not restricted. And if 100% poll to 3, Pass is not a LA.

National Bridge Organization?
This is America, the land where the final event in our national pastime is called the World Series, even though all the teams are in the US and Canada.
NABC Housing Problems: Kansas City & Toronto
Our Unit 108 has elections for board members and officers every fall. I had no idea this was unusual. A ballot is mailed to all members every year (it used to be an insert in the Quick Trick, the unit newsletter), but they moved that online last year.
Future Claims Procedures - if proposed 2017 laws are accepted.
I think in my almost 30 years of playing bridge I've had 2 claims overturned by a director. So either I don't play against enough Secretary Birds, I make extremely good claims, or Randy's concerns are overblown. It's definitely not because I avoid claiming. Are other ...
NABC Housing Problems: Kansas City & Toronto
I thought I was getting a head start trying to book Toronto this weekend -- I usually don't book my next NABC until after I get back from the previous one. Very frustrating that there were no options available more than 4 months in advance. I really prefer to stay ...
I'm Still Alive
Wow, that's spooky. Although they probably think the bridge partnership with the same name is more surprising. A law firm whose name partners are both Jewish is about as unusual as cream cheese on a bagel.
