Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
1NT or 1C
The idea that this hand is outside of the range of a 1NT opening is just wrong for two reasons. First, it is important to convey as much information as quickly as possible. Even if this hand is slightly heavy for a 15-17 1NT opening, it gets the message across ...
Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids
Actually, I can remember an instance of a procedural penalty being imposed in live play. In a regional swiss match about 6 months ago, against some prominent players, my partnership was assessed a 1 VP penalty for an improperly disclosed defense against the opponents' strong club opening.

Played the wrong board?
The board was played to a valid result. The result should stand. The board had to be played in any event, so I can't think of any reason why the result should not stand.
ATB missed slam
"Is east good enough for a 3♠ bid?" I don't know. But the hand that East held certainly justifies a 3 bid.
Auction Whacking
This auction occurred this past Saturday morning at a one-session Sectional Open Pairs. The side that bid to 7 was not a very experienced pair. I commented at the time that I believed that this was the first and last recorded instance of this auction: All vul 3 ...
A Bridge Problem (of Sorts)
The problem says "doubling." Whether this includes "redoubles" is a matter of semantics. I would answer the question both ways - with and without redoubles. This question has been answered in many places. I just can't put my finger on one at this time.
Why is it worth taking part in an appeal committee?
See Case 10.
