How should declarer approach 3N? (Part one)
This annoying club lead may have accidentally screwed up our entries. In fact, I would not rule out the possibility of a 5-1 club split, which makes the lead even worse for us. The various possibilities in spades and diamonds are myriad, and hard to evaluate without a paper and ...
How should declarer approach 3N? (Part one)
David, Kit already said that [upon a cursory reading] he didn't know how he'd play the hand. I think he was merely suggesting that out of eleven specific alternatives in the OP, it was surprising that there was none that said "run the clubs and watch the discards."

Ruling: Unsolicited play by dummy on the twelfth trick
Right. Not just an infraction, but an infraction that had a direct bearing on the result.
What should the selectors do?
Unusual prime factors--2, 3, and 17. Is there something relevant about 17?
What should the selectors do?
So Chris, I'm not sure what you're saying here. Could you clarify that???
WBF accepted proposal for proving honesty of organization
I'm not sure, but I think this might be addressing a problem even less sinister than any of the above. There has been a concern, well documented here, that some otherwise respectable organizations are using hand generators that are "reversible." I.e., that if a player got hold of ...
