Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ruling on opening 1NT with small singleton (ACBL)
Or it was always there. I went and looked right after I saw Matt's comment, and it was there then.
Ruling on opening 1NT with small singleton (ACBL)
I suppose, Ray, that it depends on what "designate" means. Wayne: you got that right!
Director's ruling opinions?
Do they have a card? Is the meaning on the card? Do they have two cards? Do the meanings match? I don't know why people put so much emphasis on verbal explanations. We have system cards for a reason.
Director's ruling opinions?
I would ask RHO for his card. Then I might call the director.
Was this the correct ruling?
Chuck Norris: "If I want your opinion, I'll beat it out of you." -- in "Force Of One"
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?
The question is what does this hypothetical UI suggest? The mere existence of UI is not in itself a problem.
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Apparently so, Richard. :-)
Ruling on opening 1NT with small singleton (ACBL)
No. Just because something is on a convention chart, that doesn't make it a special partnership understanding. Unless the ACBL explicitly says so somewhere, which to my knowledge they have not.
Director's ruling opinions?
"I was content to call the director and just live with whatever they decided." So live with it then. :-)
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
I would ask a director who told me that last thing to put it in writing so I could present as evidence to the next director after we changed our system in ways that did not comply with this "illegal" regulation.
