Tricky ruling
The Law 20F requires players to give correct information. If they fail to do so, no matter for what reason, this is misinformation, and this is an irregularity (Law 21B3).
Tricky ruling
People tend to focus on one aspect of a problem and ignore another. In the real world, if everybody always judges a situation from all possible points of view, consensus would be reached far more often, and there would be no religion. Here South focused on opps' bidding and their ...
Karl Junk's bidding problem: K853 632 8754 96
1nt opening by North would have shown 15-17 balanced, therefore after 1 North shows 12-14 or 18-19 if it was a balanced hand. This time, it was 18 balanced.

Of course, 1 opening includes all unbalanced hands with longest suit .

Thanks for your Votes. The reason for the poll was that North took some time before her pass after the 1nt, and South bid 2. The poll clearly suggests that pass was a logical alternative for South.

No Penalty After A Revoke ?
OP's 3. choice was: 'Players should be allowed to "game" the system by intentionally revoking and hoping nobody notices.' Surprisingly, this is possible under the 2007 as well as 2017 Laws if the player is in second seat for the 12th trick and dummy leads. Example (nt contract): .........Dummy ...
Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
Imagine in the middle of some future EBL event it is discovered that a pair has radio transmitters in their shoes and radio receivers in their ears. A tap with a toe generates a sound in partner's ear. I guess the committee would rule that cheating cannot be proven ...
Pre-alerted misinformation - a story from Wroclaw
I understood that East said that his parter would not alert the 1. But the TDs seem to assume that East said that his partner will tell South that 1 is at least 3 cards. What did East really say? If East really said that there will be ...
