Difficult Ruling
Definitely passing is a logical alternative, and the correct call IMO. That isn't the issue at all. And as I was willing to stipulate, there was a hesitation (at least that is what the director concluded, and there would be no reason for a committee to override that conclusion ...
Difficult Ruling
Randy, I've been playing Precision for 16 years, and it wouldn't occur to me to bid 3 on the North hand. In addition, I agree with North's first two calls with the structure of our 10-12 1NT opening. So I guess 16 years isn't enough ...
Difficult Ruling
Adam and Sylvia are talking about an entirely different hand which happened to have the same auction.
Matchpoints decision

Difficult Ruling
Okay, here are my thoughts on the ruling. First of all, the voting indicates what the director and I believe -- that this is a difficult decision. I also believe it is a very important type of case, and one which directors and committees often get wrong because they are focused ...

No. The answer is to say nothing.
Difficult Ruling
David, I don't believe that the 3 to 2 vote means all that much other than it is a difficult decision. Keep these things in mind. 1) While the bridgewinners population is reasonably well-educated, I don't think on balance that they are nearly as knowledgeable as a national ...
