Ruling After Failure to Alert
ROFL! Peter, you made my day with the quantum interpretation of bridge laws. Thanks for the explanation to both you and John.
Ruling After Failure to Alert
I would like some opinion on general bidding mis-hap situations like this, where the offending side is in a wrong spot because of the misunderstanding. I don't understand the logic of "I would have doubled 4S, if 2S was alerted as mixed raise" because, if 2S was alerted as ...
Vinoth Kumar Raghavan's lead problem: 63 T942 KJ4 QT82
no special agreement.. (would have showed value)

Half Dummy
There is possibility to squeeze either opponent who has guarded and one red suit guarded (but double squeeze doesn't work). There is also the red suit squeeze on East. The best option seems to be to establish and come down to the following position keeping all options ...
1!Dxx rule
In my partnership, pass of XX already shows preference to play in . With any other call available, partner is expected to bid as though there was no XX.
