Alertable or not
As for alerting all non-natural bids, that was EBU's regulation until a few years ago. It was very simple, but it meant that common auctions were full of alerts. For instance, Stayman and Jacoby Transfers were alerted. They realized that these alerts didn't help -- if someone was playing ...
Alertable or not
Aaron, the OP said that after the auction they explained the splinter -- that seems to suggest that they know how to post-alert. I'm not sure that alerting during the auction would really solve the UI issue. Unless you always ask about alerted bids, there's some UI from your ...

TV series "Fargo"
The nice thing for non-bridge players is that you can appreciate the action without having to know the game. They won't recognize the references that Bruce caught, but anyone with a passion for some game will find a kindred spirit in Nikki.

And just to be sure, you haven't thrown someone out of your window (yet), either? Feel free to take the Fifth. :)
TV series "Fargo"
Good catch! But who talks about placing in a bridge tournament like that in the first place? And unless it's a really strong field where you didn't even expect to place, no one is proud to be in 3rd (or 4th) place. IRL they would have been talking ...

Did Peg go to prison and then become the girlfriend of her parole officer when she got out?
