About Polling Players (II)
To Molva: Relative positions are correct. Diagram is rotated 180. It looks a bit confusing, I agree. My apolohies
About Polling Players (II)
1 - Of course we use our cell phones. The purpose of forbidding cell phones in the playing area does not apply to TDs and officials. 2 - I think I mention it in the article. Yes, it is a possibility.
About Polling Players (II)
Example on page 9 revolves around a BIT but it's not about the usual BIT questions, it's about a potential intention to mislead the opponent (73F). Also, the article was not directed to ACBL-land, and that's the reason for omitting the ACBL specs on polling.
Poor pair game movements
When discussing wrong movements... always comes to mind that even with the right movements in place I often see scoring across three or four sections instead of across the field, and that is "insaner" also!
Is this a hole in the Laws?
Nothing like a poll to plug the hole...

Nothing special. Natural, invitational by nature
Rui Marques's bidding problem: K852 Q72 KT543 2
No... but people always think there's a case behind a td's question!
Rui Marques's bidding problem: K852 Q72 KT543 2
It is not a case...
