Lead out of turn
While this is technically true, the possibilities of how to deal with the penalty card usually factor into whether you choose option 3. If none of the PC options seem useful, you won't choose 3 in the first place. So you can effectively treat them as 3 different options ...
Lead out of turn
I'm pretty sure he meant it as a general guideline, not something discussed at the decision time. I'm also pretty sure it was just a joke.

Define 'Fragment'
@Ray There are laws that require you to have a leash on your dog when walking it. I imagine that the precise meaning of "dog" is relevant to these laws. And regarding the strong option to Multi, I don't think that's allowed in ACBL, so I wasn't ...
Is this (non) ruling correct?
They don't have 7 cards in the Netherlands? Or they just want more excuses for beer? :)
Is this (non) ruling correct?
Be careful, you're treading very close to the excuse "I was always going to X" when trying to rationalize an action after receiving UI. Sometimes the UI can reinforce the AI. With the AI you might have had a close decision between A and B, but the UI pushes ...
