BIT Ruling and Aftermath
This is why we prefer non-playing director.
Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
Asking only when you plan to bid (or double) after hearing the explanation. Otherwise, wait until the auction is over and it is your turn to play (or lead). Is that a fair compromise? On hindsight, I should have added that as an option.
Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
"Humans are notoriously bad at doing things "randomly". James, in my post I had suggested asking on even-number boards and not asking on odd-number boards. One could also announce this agreement at the beginning of each new round. Unfortunately, this still leaves disadvantages of options a and b.
Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations

Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
An error on my part. Please select only one (not 5) options.
Incomplete explanation of an alerted bid
For what it is worth: 3 spades down one was worth 6.5 (out of 9) match points, 3 diamonds by South making would have given them 8 match points , three diamonds down one was worth 5 match points and 3 spades making worth 2.5 match points. Nine of ...
Incomplete explanation of an alerted bid
An interesting suggestion. I'll try it next time we play and see how the opponents react.
Incomplete explanation of an alerted bid
Not quite. I am guilty of asking and then passing. I should have doubled (seriously thought about it) so as to spare partner any UI. Why I passed and not double? Because I was told that North had a "strong" diamond raise. I should have doubled any way.
