Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I'm not on the L&E, so I could be talking gibberish, but I think I see where the confusion has arisen. The bit you're quoting concerns the things that you're allowed to call "strong". That's not the same as the things that you're allowed ...

Jim Munday Wins Another BBO Individual Practice Session!
Have you not learned anything from Westworld? You can't keep abusing the poor robots and expect to just get away with it by wiping away their memory. Some day they'll wake up and realise what Jim Munday has been doing to them all these years, and oh boy ...
First Official Collusive Cheating Case in Turkey!
"They decided that it was obvious how the player and the kibitzer were communicating, and their code was cracked." Any details, or are they waiting for the appeal?
