Law 45.C.4.b regarding an "unintended designation" (and its unintneded consequences!)
Thanks for the historical background. The (mis-)use of the description "player" and "partner" are more than confusing, and what led me to believe that this rule was intended to apply to the defenders also, similar to the allowance of a "mechanical error" in pulling a bid card from the ...
Peg Kaplan's lead problem: QJ QJ96 97 QJ542
