It should be no surprise that the first was ruffed. Partner's jump to 6 without checking for a fit or KCs strongly suggests a void prob in s

I would like a clarification of the rule please .

Is it no E cigarettes or no smoking E cigarettes ? Are you also telling me that if I am chewing on an unlit tobacco cigarette I am going to get penalized? What if I had a pack of smokes sitting on the table ? Is that grounds for penalty as well? The way I understand the rules : There is no smoking in the playing area due to toxic fumes E or otherwise. If an E cigarette is sitting harmlessly on the table and not emitting fumes , what's the harm ????? If it is emitting an odor than I will agree with the director's warning and subsequent penalty.

There has to be some point where personal freedoms come into play !

That is what seeding is supposed to do .

Unfortunately there is no way to “ judge ” Bridge seeding. If we look at this year's NCAA basketball tournament we see just how bad the committee seeded the field . Kentucky ( an original 8 seed ) is a 2 point favorite over Wisconsin ( a 2 seed ) in the semi finals. Kentucky has been favored in most of their games despite having to play seeds that were higher than theirs . Tennessee ( an original 11 seed ) was a 5.5 point favorite over a 6 seed in their first game. I can go on but you get the idea.

If there were point spreads in Bridge we would see just how ridiculous some of the match ups are based on seeding.

The problem is that several foreign pairs are significantly undervalued. Players who have limited masterpoints and experience in team play despite good talent are also hampered by the seeding

As for how to do 2 matches in the later rounds . Just have everyone vote once and take the 2 matches with the highest vote into consideration
