How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
In my college game, North would have held xxxx of hearts, KQx of spades, and a stiff club. The bidding goes 1-2 and then 3NT uttered (before bidding boxes) with an air of finality. Now it would be slapped down on the table with a clear indication North ...
How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
Ogust is an alterable bid. If the opponents ask, I think "Ogust" is an even worse short description than usual, because most take that as showing an invitational (or better) hand. I think it's incumbent on your partner to say that while you are asking about opener's values ...
Zero Tolerance can work!
Repeat offenders. I'd even heard one director call to their table earlier, but not that it was ZT as opposed to revoke or lead out of turn.
What happens after a psych
I don't think a disclosed psyche agreement is a psyche in the ACBL sense. It is another possible alternative meaning of a call. My experience is that most psyches are UNDISCLOSED partnership agreements.

Bidding Style Variation during an Event
Even against a particular partnership, my double of Player A's 3-level preempt is takeout-oriented while my double of Player B's is "As usual, B doesn't have his bid; is 500 enough or do we need to declare?"
ACBLscore"+" - a short history
"Contract award was back in 2011. Technical options for Java meant using Swing or similar to run on multiple platforms." And the problem with this was what, exactly? Admittedly I'm mostly a back-end developer, but I would think Java and Postgresql (prefer over MySQL) would be a reasonable architecture ...
Bidding Style Variation during an Event
Are you going to tell me that you can't consider an opponent's past pre-empt history (soundness) in deciding whether to double, bid on, or pass? Not likely.
