More exploration of "Comparable Call" ("CC")
@Anthony If you're playing forcing NT, 1NT and 2 are usually mutually exclusive. You can bid 1NT with heart support, but your strength has to be outside the range of your single raise.
Robot meltdown
I was mistaken about Best Hand. And whether it's Human Declares depends on where you're playing it. If you're playing it in from the Solitaire section of the BBO application, the robot declares its own hands. If you're playing it from the standalone web page, it ...
Robot meltdown
Yes. All the robot settings are the same for all clients. Robot tournaments are Human Declares, except for the ACBL Robot Duplicate (Classic). All other robot games are not.

First unpleasant experience of changed 2017 Laws
It is. Meckwell double shows 1 minor or both majors, DONT 2 shows both majors.
First unpleasant experience of changed 2017 Laws
In EBU, the wording is "removed from the bidding box with apparent intent (but the TD may apply Law 25)". The "apparent intent" qualification is presumably to avoid treating knocking over the box as making dozens of bids. But the reference to Law 25 explicitly allows for correcting unintended bids ...
