Director Ruling
@Michael Rosenberg: I can accept that there may be some question about what was the agreement. But even if the agreement was made 10 seconds before the start of the session, it's still the agreement. Unless you can argue that East was lying and that West didn't have ...
Director Ruling
North didn't receive misinformation. He is entitled to know E-W agreements, and he was correctly informed of those agreements.
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT

Multi 2!D and Weak Twos
I think Multi for terrible weak 2s and 2H/2S for decent ones is played with some frequency in Britain, at least by the college kids.
Define Your Bids Before I Tell You My Defense
A similar situation arose in baseball. Switch-hitters are fairly common, that is, batters who can play left-handed or right-handed. Pitchers come in left-handed and right-handed styles also, and it is considered advantageous to bat left-handed against a right-hand pitcher, and vice versa. So a switch-hitter chooses how he stands depending ...
