How Would You Rule
@Steven Allen - You make a very interesting point in Para 3 of your comment 7 levels above. I had also assumed that a top pair would have some agreement (general or specific) in place for such lead directing/interference calls. However the information in the associated bidding poll indicates that ...
How Would You Rule
@Marshall - Thanks for the update. I now appreciate that the tears caused by XX referred to E/W rather than N/S. Being a pedant, I note that you acknowledge that this hand is being discussed on another website but with a different auction. For completeness, I also note that ...
How Would You Rule
@David Gold and @Marshall Lewis, Thanks for taking the time to address my comments - much appreciated. @Marshall Lewis - in the penultimate paragraph - 7- by XX (twice)are you referring to the lead directing double rather than to a redouble by N/S?
How Would You Rule
@David Gold. Thanks for your comment. It is very unusual for me to be over-optimistic on bidding at high levels. Hence I would like to recalibrate my thought processes. Consequently could I please ask you three questions? A major part of my upgrading the S hand was the double by ...

Is using the rules (even obscure) always ethical?
Another illegal 'Benji' bid
I must have missed something. I had assumed that the auction was part of the competition. I assumed that our bidding system was get us into the best place (declaring or defending) rather to assist the opposition to get to the best possible place. And that the opponents would have ...
Another illegal 'Benji' bid
When I was first taught hand evaluation it was with the Milton Work count. Although, I now find it to be a poor method of evaluating distributional hands, that still tends to be my instinctive/default means of evaluating hands. With Ian teaching his students LTC at an early stage ...
Another illegal 'Benji' bid
I appreciate that your term erroneously refers to the application of the 2009 EBU regulations. However, I would have liked to see the new regulations maintain compatibility with existing (over 50years) custom and practice. After that time I would have expected most UK players to have encountered the system and ...
