WBF alerting policy on doubles without screen
@Lynn I agree with you. Personally I vote for "players have right to, or not to, alert on any doubles", but not "all doubles should be alerted". Also I heard different directors interpret this rule in different ways, while there are no additional NBO-specific alerting regulations. (Edited for typos and ...
WBF alerting policy on doubles without screen
Thanks for the clarification. It seems that I have misunderstood and misused the word "alertable". What is the proper word to describe "a bid/call that can be alerted, but one doesn't have to if it is natural"?
WBF alerting policy on doubles without screen
"All doubles are not alertable" - A player may not alert any doubles. Alert on a double is against the policy. "All doubles are required to be alerted" - A player have to alert on all doubles. Fail to alert on a double is against the policy. I believe the above two ...
WBF alerting policy on doubles without screen
@Michael K I believe "all doubles are not alertable" and "all doubles are required to be alerted" accomplish the same thing. However "all doubles are alertable" does not.

Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AJ843 --- KQ84 AK85
3 is space consuming. An alternative is to bid 2NT after 1-2, give partner room to bid his 4-card minor, then simply raise it. In this case either 3 or 3 you would not be able to fit the other minor. Even 1-2 ...
What does the double show in this auction?
If pass is forcing, I can pass then pull of partner's double to 5 with x KQxx AQJTx AJx to show slam interest, and to bid 5 directly with x KQx AQJTx QJxx to show a hand that prefer play than defense but not interested in slam ...
What does the double show in this auction?
I guess I am the only person who think pass is forcing. I don't mind to defend 4 doubled with 23 HCP when our side does not have a good fit. I believe we will get plus score most of the time in this auction, and forcing pass ...
Appeals Case 3 from San Francisco
Quote from the appeal: "Finally, the tie was broken by the argument that if West could pass 4D, so could East. Since those actions seemed about equally poor, and since East and West appeared to be peers, we decided that for this East, passing was a logical alternative." This does ...
