Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A ruling conundrum
You conclusion for scenario 4 does not sit right with me. I do not think the required pause by West should start with the query of South's 3 bid. This bid is not normally alertable, so upon hearing the alert West should be thinking 3 is something ...
We Hope You Stay Home
"Although one would think winning the 2 session swiss should pay more than winning a 1 session pairs game....." There is a neverending debate about how much a 2 session win should pay versus two 1 session wins. As one other member of the Masterpt Committee (among others) noted, it ...
We Hope You Stay Home
Where to start? OK, Max has done his homework and Winston has stated the rationale for why masterpts are awarded the way they are. Jim, there are no regional A/X or open MPs based on Gold Rush pairs anymore (not since 2015). There is a fixed multiplier as Max ...
We Hope You Stay Home
The MP formula does have many components, but mathematically it is not complicated. Even the once-existing logarithmic function has been replaced by a step-function (with table look-up) approximating it. Since 2015, flight A or A/X events are no longer based on the number of tables in lower flights. This ...
Claim requiring a future revoke
Law 81B2 says the director is "bound by these Laws...". Law 81C3 says the director's duty is to "rectify an error or irregularity of which he becomes aware in any manner...." I can't see how you can interpret these two statements to mean that you can turn a ...
Claim requiring a future revoke
It appears that on trick 11 LHO led a card, dummy ruffed, RHO overruffed, and then declarer overruffed RHO instead of following suit as required. The OP further states: "The director states, "you have to follow suit" and awards the defense the trick." Even if this weren't part of ...
One player has the correct hand. Ruling...
Tim, this is a common misconception probably based on tradition. See Andrew Sinclair's post above on Law 7D.
One player has the correct hand. Ruling...
Then apply the rule of restricted choice. The 1st player who had the correct hand almost certainly did not switch the board. So it is 2 to 1 that the other side did.
Toronto BoD Journal is Available
Your suggestion to divide the BoD and BoG into two separate but equal bodies would require a big rewrite of the ACBL Bylaws. I doubt that would ever get off the ground. The current structure within the ACBL leaves the clubs as independent entities. Presumably, this is because clubs vary ...
Disclosure of style of take-out doubles
If the double is primarily take-out (ie. asks partner to bid something), then there is no alert, nor is there any need to put it on the CC. I know quite a few I/N players that double with flat hands and not so flat hands as long as they ...
