ACBL-Land Ruling: Inadvertent Barred Psyche
And if the auction had gone (1)-3-(P)-3 with 3 alerted, but no explanation asked for? EditAdd: I would think an alert would be appropriate. I find it interesting that an alert may or may not be required based on previous explanations. Also, even ...
For those who play support doubles
Let's say for argument's sake that if there are 0 or 2 majors remaining, a negative double is "takeout" and move on to auctions with just 1 major left. 1m-(1)-X Is this double "takeout" (ie s and om) or is it showing 4 (ignoring ...

ACBL-Land Ruling: Inadvertent Barred Psyche
"West should continue to bid & alert as was his or her initial thought process when he or she bid." Continue to bid..., yes; continue to alert..., no. The opponents are entitled to know that East made an artificial, negative 1 response.
