Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
Then again, I can "psyche" a strong 2C on AKQTxxx KQJTxx so that's OK.

If the EBU can't afford to send the teams, then there are ways of raising money. Its an admission of defeat to pretend there is no way to increase the pool of funds, if that is required, in order to send the teams.

There's ways of raising money. With a bit of creativity and imagination, the Junior teams' record European Championship performance could be used to stimulate interest in the game. Just deciding not to fund the teams is an admission of defeat.

You aren't adding anything to the discussion by saying that. It's the same crazy mentality as the rabid brexiteers claiming that the Supreme Court are anti-democratic for trying to apply the law.
