Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Could someone tell me the ACBL's definition of "collusive cheating?" I can't see one in the Code of Disciplinary Regulations ("CDR"). What provisions of the CDR prohibit collusive cheating? Did the ACBL's Anti-Cheating Commission ("ACC") develop such a definition? Is it yet to be adopted? The ACC ...
A Request from Ms Manners
I'm of the same school as Michael as far as learning bridge in a group of people who would strongly question each other's bids and plays while out socializing after a club game or tournament. It's generally understood in this context that some actions or choices will ...

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Law 72A requires players to comply "with the lawful procedures and ethical standards set out in these laws." Is it possible to ethically violate Laws 16B1(a) or 73C1? How would you phrase an appeal alleging such a violation?
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
If we assume that S provided UI about possessing the ace, setting aside the arguable AI, could N have ethically made a lead? There seems to be an assumption underlying some comments that it can be ethical to violate Law 16B.
Do we need the BOG?
Stu regularly reports to our unit board as he did at last night's monthly meeting.
How would you rule?
Scott, I truly don't know what partners are thinking a decent percentage of the time when I have a bidding plan in mind. Sometimes I even scribble down my next call during the BIT. So faced with a BIT, I ignore it and follow through on my plan and ...
