Time to simplify the laws?
Did you take the time to think this trough? Well, that's a zero for you :-)
Putting together a Strong Club (Precision) - any insights into why and how these issues matter?

Peter Hasperhoven's bidding problem: 74 AQJ9842 AK8 2
Good point. Of course it is a simple NO on all counts. However, once you've seen it, you cannot unsee it. One could argue that in a borderline case, active ethics require you to pass after a slow pass and bid after a fast one:-).
