BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
"More accurately, it could be called a hodgepodge of conventions and treatments." IMHO, that's what a system is: a collection of conventions and treatments. Some of these have become well known enough to be given a name. It's also possible for the creator to give it a name ...
BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
'The phrase "2/1 GF" means nothing "in terms of system"'. So you're filling out a card at the Partnership Desk, what do you put on the "Systems I play" line? What's the name of this system whose cornerstone is 5-card majors, 2/1 response forcing to game ...
BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
You can always use phrases like "2/1 with weak NT". The system name establishes a baseline set of default agreements, which you can salt and pepper to taste.

Another ruling case
No one could possibly be under the illusion that screens are totally soundproof and make it as if you were in separate rooms. They just reduce the amount of information that can be passed across the table, intentionally or inadvertently. But "self-defeating" implies that these failings totally cancel the benefits ...
Alert Question
Why shouldn't a pair be able to use their own defense? If you're wondering why they're allowed to refer to it, rather than remember it, I guess they felt that players shouldn't have to memorize something that comes up only when they're playing very rare ...
Links to ACBL NABC Video Recordings
Is it really necessary for ACBL to do this? Anyone who wants to analyze the videos can easily partition them randomly before they start. The only reason to do it in the official records is to protect against someone intentionally fabricating the results of their analysis, by partitioning after the ...
