Do You or Don't You?
Packs have been shuffled together before. It wouldn't be the craziest thing ever to happen at the bridge table to hold something like: J10987665432 5 --- 8
Which bid is most liable for the final contract?
North should pass 2 with that hand. 2 tends to show 6 clubs and about 7-10 points. Sure you might hit a heart fit but if you don't hit you're probably best off in 2.

Each of South's calls is worse than the last.
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Ed, appeals without merit for director rulings don't really map well onto criminal prosecution because of the high stakes of criminal law. A bridge equivalent might be suspension/expulsion (imprisonment = time banned from bridge), where if someone gets suspended for 5 years and appeals, the tributary is probably not ...

Is it a demand or a suggestion?
2 was also a pretty gross misbid.
U31 junior event
That's a step in the wrong direction, imo. "Young ladies" sounds like the sort of thing a high school principal would say. Just call them women, which is what they are.
U31 junior event
It's fine if women want to refer to themselves as girls, but it strikes me as infantalizing for an organization to make the official name of a competition a "girls'" competition, when many of the competitors are over 20 and hold or are working for advanced degrees. And Mike ...
U31 junior event
The WBF naming scheme is absurd. The tournament is the World Youth Teams Championships, which is a pretty mediocre name, but the category names get worse. U16 = "Kids," OK that's not so bad. 15-year olds are definitely kids U21 = "Youngsters," OK, well to my ear youngsters are younger than ...
