How would you have acted?
Richard, "full details as required by the regulations in force" sounds to me like minimal disclosure, not full disclosure.
How would you have acted?
Tom, this is about full disclosure, not about making sure that declarer doesn't have a brain fart.
How would you have acted?
(1) - 2 natural is alertable
How would you have acted?
judicial activism
How would you have acted?
You absolutely did the right thing by telling your screen mate what your partner's double meant. If you know that your screen mate has misunderstood your or your partner's call, and you don't set him straight, I would rule against you in a committee.
John Diamond's lead problem: QT8652 Q86 KT9 7
Switch the red jacks but keep the shapes the same, and now a trump lead sets it two and a diamond lead sets it just one.

I also think that a trump lead is best now.

Queen of spades lets the contract make. Ten or 9 of Diamonds sets it two. Everything else sets it one. I led the 2 of spades, but Brian thought I should lead a trump. http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?bbo=y&linurl=http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/vugraph_linfetch ...
