Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Meyer you have options: 1. Ask the directors to keep an eye out for this type of behavior and request that they are liberal with procedural penalties. Make zero tolerance announcements and put them in the bulletins with PP warnings 2. Send an email from the Unit/District to the ...

Ron - Couldn't agree more. We have a process. When I have heard complaints of this type I always suggest filling out a recorder form. The Recorder will keep a paper trail which is essential for determining patterns of behavior. Usually a call from the recorder is all that is ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
Tim I wasn't clear enough with that statement. What I meant to convey is that there is some consideration to eliminate the obligation for providing mid chart defenses at the table. Players might still be allowed to bring their own defenses if they choose. It's something under review.
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Meyer - You are a really nice guy. Those on the board who don't know you can't appreciate how nice you are. I know that you would rather handle these things quietly. However, after speaking with the pairs in question if there is no improvement then these matters should ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Robert tournaments can choose to restrict their events to general chart eliminating mid chart conventions al together. Most tournaments allow mid chart in Flight A and top brackets of KOs. They cannot to my knowledge eliminate certain aspects of general chart. Clubs are more independent in that regard. However isn ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Meyer I don't really understand the issue here. It doesn't matter whether you believe the player is unintentionally transmitting information through tempo or gestures. Their actions are inappropriate. The downside risk is all on them. The issue should be referred to the recorder for action and possibly to ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
Ed, Jim, Michael etc - Danny is a member of the C&C committee. It never occurred to us that this confusion existed before reading the comments on this thread. The requirement in the Mid-Chart to have approved defenses is in order for the convention to be approved for use in ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
Ed it's not so remarkable. the guidelines state that the defenses must be made available. There is no statement that players are required to use them. Perhaps you are confusing the requirement that once you choose to use a defense you cannot change your mind once you look at ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
"First, I think the assertion in your first sentence is wrong. KIds' disinterest in learning bridge has nothing to do with "systems complexity". So true Ed. Remember when we all started. It was the young whipper snappers who were playing ehaa and 5 card preempts. The establishment part of the ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
Jim you were given incorrect information. The books are optional. Feel free to use any defense you want. Also you do not have to provide anything to the opponents other than alerting and explaining your bids.
