Guess... Win lead with Q and lead 7 -- LHO might have cashed an ace against a slam and -- if RHO rises with A, then he can't force an early decision. When LHO wins K with A, you have some and squeeze chances but should probably take the ...
Golden Rules
Bridge rules are fragmented into WBF laws + WBF minutes + Regulations of each RA + Conditions of Contest + .... [list] [*] Eliminating the latter would save a few Amazon rain-forests, level the playing-field, and simplify life for peripatetic players. [*] Many current rules are too sophisticated, over-subjective, unnecessary, add no value, and should be eliminated ...

[quote=Ed Reppert] I looked for ten second sand timers a while back.[/quote][quote=Ed Judy]I don't know why it isn't technically easy to employ a timer at trick 1, preferably on a bridge mate.[/quote] We can't rely on RAs to make sensible regulations ...
Life Master Pairs Mess
Allowing players adequate time to peruse and check detailed provisional scores (their own and those of other competitors), goes some way to establishing [b][i]the facts[/b][/i].

ACBL BoD Votes Possibility of NO NABC+ Winners Ever
Depriving cheats of their ill-gotten gains is the first step in the right direction. It's harder, but more important, to provide their victims with redress. Honest players have been deprived of fair competition, for which they paid. Some have been robbed of placings and awards. Arguably, an official, who ...
ACBL BoD Votes Possibility of NO NABC+ Winners Ever
NBO's seem to go to any length to avoid hassle. Hence, it's no surprise that they suck up to cheats. They are even more timid than Bridge law-makers. Arguably, WBF laws reward infraction and eschew deterrence. Nevertheless, at least, they embrace so-called [b][i]Equity[/i][/b] (attempting ...
NABC Appeal
A pollee said he'd bid 4 and South said he would have made that bid before the opening lead. Hence, IMO, the director should at least include 4= in his weightings (resolving some doubt in favor of the victims rather than rewarding EW for their infraction).
