2!S or not?
Even if partner often raises with 3, would they really prefer that over rebidding a 6-card suit?
AI, Contract Bridge, Conventional Bidding. A casual update.
IIRC, the original version of GIB didn't have a bidding system database either, except maybe for the first round or two of bidding, either. It was many years before deep learning became feasible, so it mainly used simulations, like it does during the play. I think the result was ...

Gene, what "rules relaxation" are you talking about? The rule is that penalty cards are only imposed on defenders, not declarer. Another rule is that no player is required to call attention to their own infraction (with a few exceptions, e.g. correcting a misexplanation).

Who is castigating declarer? The difference in golf is that there's often not an opponent or referee right next to you when you commit an infraction, so they need to use the honor system. Bridge also has different rules for declarer than defenders, because there are two defenders and ...
There's No Justice in Bridge
It still says "East redoubles with 12 HCP and 4 spades." Why not just post a hand diagram, then there's no confusion about who has what. None of this makes any sense. North doesn't have a takeout double of 1. East should have bid 1 on ...

I suspect the question about the Intermediate forum was viewed as sarcasm.
Boye Brogeland
Hopefully the declarer in those cases would know that they should call the TD. And unless he's incompetent he'll allow the card to be withdrawn in accordance with the Laws.
Please, One More Time for this Theme
Could you be specific about which part of the law you quoted (twice!) supports your argument? Kit quoted the clause that says that an unexpected alert or non-alert is UI. Doesn't that answer your "Where's the UI?" question? I don't think there's any question whether there ...

Law 16 doesn't care whether the action taken is an LA. It only cares whether there's some other LA, and whether the action taken was suggested over it by the UI. So it doesn't matter if 4 is an LA -- it's the action that we ...
Please, One More Time for this Theme
While I don't understand the reason for bidding 4, I think all the responses are missing something: While passing may be an LA, how does partner's failure to alert 3 "demonstrably suggest" that bidding 4 is more likely to be successful than passing? Does it ...
