Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Director Ruling
Looks like all passed. Call the TD and tell him the score on the BridgeMate was scored on the wrong side.
Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids

Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids
" The failure to alert a nonalertable bid isn't MI unless there is an online regulation that requires alerting all your own mistakes." I see it differently. East is required to alert his DBL if he thinks his partnership agreement is that it is single-suited (DONT). He clearly thought that ...
Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids

Memphis Motions
Li-Chung, I was replying to your orginal comment, but got interrupted and then AJ chimed in with his first hand knowledge. Here what I was writing: I think this motion was made just to simplify the current method of calculating MPs for a 4-session non-KO event. It currently pays a ...
Memphis Motions
There are not 180 people at a BoG meeting. At the last BoG meeting in Honolulu, Richard Popper, the BoG chair noted that the meeting expenses are about $40 per person (there are usually around 100 in attendance). The BoG then voted to do away with the continental breakfast and ...
