about me

I'm the Chief TD and Chief Executive of the EBU as well as an EBL & WBF Tournament Director, but my social media posts are usually my own opinions and don't necessarily reflect the official policy of either the EBU, the EBL or the WBF.

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
2 sessions movements (Mitchell+Howell) VS arrow switch.
Btw Bridgemate doesn’t support movements: it interacts with the scoring program, which is where the movement is specified.

Marty, you seem to have misread Arend's post.
From a bidding box when is a bid final?
Not similar at all: in the EBU, as soon as the call has left the box, even if no-one has seen what it is, it has been made. In the ACBL, even if it had left the box and been seen by everyone, it has not been made until it ...

0/3 Ambiguity
I suppose one shouldn't assume one or the other, although I've always known it as showing four or more. In that context, I agree with Andy that it's reasonable for a shortage-showing rebid to effectively make the sequence game-forcing.
What are your pet peeves?
Mine is that the software doesn't support quoting of posts to which I am responding.
0/3 Ambiguity
Where did it say 3-card raise?
When Is a Bidding Poll Not a Bidding Poll?
You couldn't do that if a diamond lead had been prohibited.
