Alert Procedure After Misbid
The correct reply, when asked about the 2NT bid, is to say that it asks for further description. It is wrong to say what your bid will mean.
Should a bid of pass with negative lead directing inference be alerted
Not only should it be alerted, but it should never fall into the "delayed alert" category. It should be obvious that after the auction is over it is just too late for the other side to be able to make use of the information. Rather than falling under the category ...
Peter Knee's bidding problem: A3 AJ74 J754 Q93
If you decide that this is an opening hand, which I don't, then you should be willing to defend against some low-level contracts. In the actual hand, 2HX goes down two, there is not even a partscore at the 3-level for E/W. N/S have no 8-card fit ...

Jim Munday's bidding problem: xx x AKQJT9xx xx
I do play Flannery and find it very useful. As Flannery was invented to solve a bidding problem, it is not needed when holding a void (my partnership agreement). So I would bid 2NT, expecting partner to show a club fragment. Then, if my RHO doesn't double 3C, I ...
What Is The Ethical Thing to Do?
I believe that all of you understand that the ethical thing to do (because of the UI from the tremor) is to bid 4 hearts. It is truly unfortunate that many of you have experienced situations where the director does nothing to protect the non-offenders. I assure you that I ...
Equity?
Ed, a revoke is a mental error. It is not something that we would give a procedural penalty for.
