A Teenager's Thoughts on Revokes and Restoring Equity
To what Michael and James are saying, I think its an interesting idea. Relying on UI for unestablished revokes would incentivize players to acknowledge the mis-play before it becomes established. This could very often result in little or no difference in the hand, which seems as an overall better rule ...
A Teenager's Thoughts on Revokes and Restoring Equity
As a fellow director John, I cannot say that I would look forward to that job at all. I also understand all the responsibilities and tasks that many club directors have to pick up, and even now they often find themselves crunched for time. However, reading through the recent comments ...
A Teenager's Thoughts on Revokes and Restoring Equity

A Teenager's Thoughts on Revokes and Restoring Equity
Thank you for the correction, I did not post Law 64 itself out of concern for the longevity of the article - as it is rather long - although law 64B's 7 exceptions were mentioned.
Ruling from the Junior Trials
Maybe awful isn't the right word - Since I play a weak NT with most partners, I can say that I have had some experience in defending over it. In balancing seat of a weak NT, RHO could easily have a 10 count (as he did) and doubling rewards you ...
Ruling from the Junior Trials
Of course! I asked the North player, a regular partner of mine, if he had any plans to appeal the call and his response was this: "No not at all, I did technically fail to alert the weak NT. Even though David definitely should have known, I'm still at ...
