Fit Showing Jumps or Weak Jump Shifts in Competition
Mike, I like this notion of distinguishing 1-1-2 auctions from 1-2-2 (and of course 1-1-1). If your partnership style is to allow light 1-level overcalls, this makes even more sense.
What do you think of the director's actions?
What if someone on the non-offending side, and less familiar with the laws, decided not to call the director, assuming that because the director was there and took no action, it wasn't an irregularity? That wouldn't be a good outcome either, so I tend not to agree with ...

How many times?
Musn't LHO hold a stiff and the holding be J1097 for this bizarre turn of events at T2? I'm playing LHO for 4=2=6=1. If LHO has the A, several lines work, but I can also make the hand when RHO has that card ...
