Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
UI: What does it suggest? (Part 2)
The director sometimes has to conduct a poll to determine logical alternatives. What you suggest does not seem workable so long as there are time limits to duplicate bridge.
Gene, interesting point. The Alert Procedures pamphlet states: "Once the auction has progressed to the point that the opening bidder has had the opportunity to make a second call, conventional calls at the four level or higher are not Alerted until the auction is over." If I'm sitting in ...
Sorry, Michael, for being too cryptic. I agree with Chris. At an earlier stage of my bridge career, the ACBL required alerting the pass, the raise, and the support double or redouble, but has since limited the alert to the double/redouble. I wish I could tell you when the ...
I apologize for this question
Steve, do you draw any inference from the inclusion of the required announcements in an official ACBL pamphlet entitled "Alert Procedures?" Do you draw any inference from the requirement in that pamphlet that when making an announcement and "bidding boxes are used, the 'Alert' strip is tapped also?"

Please, Please Me
The OP asks for context when posting bidding problems, a request I wholly endorse. I have the same request when posting other kinds of articles. [b]Provide context[/b]. (1) Make article titles informative. The OP title, for example, is clever, but try to hint at the topic, not just ...
If a double requests a specific lead, it should be alerted, but what about a pass by the same pair?
ACBL has changed its regulations on this point.
I apologize for this question
Ed did make a lot of statements in this subthread. I agree with his statement that pre-alerts outside those described in the Alert need not be given. I disagree that it would amount to MI if I told new opponents, for example, that we play Precision or a weak NT ...
