An "offbeat incident"
@Gary Hann Meanwhile, there supposedly [i]is[/i] information you say is readily available, information that you claim to have, information that you say you have sent to another person. Why not make it available to all? Why the secrecy on your part?
An "offbeat incident"

The Directors got this right or wrong?
And nobody said anything until after the match, it was board 1 of a 9-board match...
non-serious 3NT convention
Was the first auction in the text of the poll changed? And if so, from what?
non-serious 3NT convention
That doesn't seem to be the first auction I first saw...
