From a bidding box when is a bid final?
Matt, even the EBU rule needs some subjective judgement - at what point has the bidding card been "removed from the bidding box"? This question did lead to a disputed ruling at a County event last year. But yes, I prefer the EBU regulation. The EBU Blue Book describes the regulation ...

Define 'Fragment'
I like the principle that we should describe a the features of a hand, rather than using a bridge term which may have different meanings for different people. But is it practical? Consider a simple bridge term such as "Balanced". I could point you to any number of old texts ...
