Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
"Why can't a simple rule be to alert whenever your agreement reveals something the opponents aren't privy to?" Because virtually every call in the early auction would be an alert. There is no "standard" style and there are multiple small variations of all openings, responses, and rebids. Alerting ...
A CC/UI hypothetical
Law 16A1c: "A player may use information in the auction or play if: ... it is information specified in any law or regulation to be authorized or, when not otherwise specified, arising from the legal procedures authorized in these laws and in regulations (but see B1 following);" A major point of ...
A CC/UI hypothetical
It can be difficult to separate the AI from the UI in these cases. The AI is partner called out of turn and if he doesn't come up with a comparable call I will be barred. Furthermore (because the opening was 2NT) there will be no comparable call available ...
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
"I was wrong that partner must have had better spades. But I'm also evidence to David's point that there are some people who will think partner has shown spades, and thus for me 4♠ was a LA when this first came up. And, depending on the class of ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
"Assume you are playing support doubles here--now you have info the opps do not. I would alert the pass--am I wrong?" I think your failure to observe ACBL alerting regulations is an infraction of Law 40B2a(iii) which grants the RA the authority to make such regulations. Everyone should decide ...

You "loudly asked for a refund" because of a player's slow play. Two wrongs do not make a right. You could have spoken quietly with the Director about your concerns. For deliberately trying to embarrass and upset another player you should have been given a ZT penalty. Nevertheless he ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
"the opening leader asked about the auction and we said that 2N was an inquiry and that 3♣ promised a 3 card raise of the major and a minimum hand." The problem is openng leader inquired about the *auction* and you responded with a correct explanation of 3. You ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
A 3 response to a 2NT opening that asks for majors is not alertable. Doesn't matter whether it asks for 4-card or 5-card majors or whether it promises any particular major suit holding. This is a good rule. Warn me immediately if 3 is not a form ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
The relevant ACBL rule (Alert Procedures) seems to be: "Most natural calls do not require Alerts. If the call promises about the expected strength and shape, no Alert is necessary. Treatments that show unusual strength or shape should be Alerted." The application of this rule is subjective. The expected meaning ...

Actually beginners are taught an important rule that answers that question. Always trust your partner.
