When your tires are flat
Law 25 begins with "If a player discovers that he has not made the call he intended to make ..." Being forced to call 1, he arguably does not, or at least not necessarily, intend to make a different call. So it's not clear that Law 25 would apply ...
When your tires are flat
This seems like a distinction without a difference. Whether you refer to West's call as "accepting" or not, I don't see how the situation changes. South can substitute the intended call for the inadvertent one, and the previously accepted-or-not call goes away. It was a virtual particle, created ...
When your tires are flat
The only consideration in Law 25 as to whether the inadvertent call can not be changed is whether partner has subsequently called. West is ignored, so it doesn't matter what he does for Law 25 purposes. Law 27 does not say West's call accepting the insufficient bid nullifies ...

Bridge justice on the edge
Before the round began, partner looked at the opponents' card, so he knows what 2 is. Is his knowing what the opponents' methods are AI or UI? Is the part that partner could have 13-16 balanced AI or UI?
Philly flight cancelled
I mentioned this on the other thread, but it looks like some trains are running; check the Amtrak website.
Weather in Philadelpia - Heard there is bad weather - Help
Some trains going to/from Philadelphia have been canceled, but not all, if I'm reading Amtrak's website correctly.
