Changing a card played after a revoke
Thank you. My point is/was that OP's interpretation is not correct because it uses 62c(2). Whether East may actually withdraw/replace the card he played before the irregularity was outed remains an issue to be answered by some other law. Henrik points to 'some other law'. John ...
Changing a card played after a revoke
I have read the law cited in the OP; and, as written, it is not applicable to the case at hand. If Dummy withdraws its play, Subsection 2 describes what the next player may do. That didn't happen. It does not say the next player can only withdraw his ...
Transfers responses to 1N overcall
Do we overcall 1nt over 1Maj with Jxx or worse and the right count? Or do we Double? For us, accepting the xfer to their suit says "Yeh, I lied about the stopper." Otherwise the continuation by overcaller is 2nt or 3nt.
Can Bergen raises be unlimited?
"But, Director, I wuz always gonna...."
Another what does this double mean?
I agree with those who don't feel they need a takeout Double of 2 to say, "I had a takeout Double of 1."
Homage to Michael Rosenberg

Is this forcing?
SK: 3 indeed could be used as an artificial game force. But I believe it should not be directionless. For us it shows extra club length -- while 3 would have been an attempt to get out in 3
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
DB: with Axxx AQ Qxxxx Qx, I would prefer Responder start with 1, not 1 or 2.
Is this forcing?
Sounds like a good way to end up in 3 with a 6-1 fit or 3nt when we didn't want to accept the invitational 2nt. But maybe Italian bidding has other ways to avoid the problem.
Is this forcing?
If I didn't want 3 to be a game acceptance with 6 Hearts, I would have rebid 2. However, Partner and I believe 3 should not be a game acceptance. If I had 5-5 + in the rounded suits and a game acceptance, I could bid 3 ...
