Bid out of turn ???
The penalties are based on the laws as best I remember them from several years ago when I was directing regularly. If I was actually making a ruling on this at a club, rather than in a forum like this, I would confirm the specifics in the law book.
Bid out of turn ???
E/W is offending side. Players should check that the board is placed correctly. South can accept the call, otherwise auction reverts to West who must pass at every opportunity. Also possible lead penalties if South ends up declaring...along with unauthorized information to West if either North or South ...

If the poll is conducted correctly, the questioner should also ask what other actions (if any) the responder would consider. If a sizeable number would consider an option and some would actually choose it, then that option should be considered a logical alternative. So even if say 9 of 10 ...

They said it would be 80 games in the tournament. The only way that works mathematically is 16 groups of 3 (for 48 games), top 2 in each group qualify for 32 team KO with 32 games (including 3rd place game).
Sportsmanlike Dumping Arises Again
Ian, they won't be starting in 2026 when there are only 3 teams per group.
Sportsmanlike Dumping Arises Again
Paul, you are close, but it won't be until 2026 that the tournament expands to 48 teams. And then you won't have any simultaneous games within a group since each group will only have 3 teams. That also throws out one of the main points of equity in ...
