Pass out of turn and later using a call not normally chosen

Pass out of turn and later using a call not normally chosen
The December 2017 ACBL document http://web2.acbl.org/documentLibrary/laws/ComparableCallsGuide.pdf has information that confirms for the example of my original post (opening pass with partner as dealer, then 1-Pass-2NT bypassing majors to keep partner in the auction) that: 1. Offender can distort his bidding to keep ...
Pass Out of Rotation
Contrary to the opinions expressed in this sub-thread above, the following December 2017 document on the ACBL website has some significant information that answers several questions posed on Bridgewinners and other websites: http://web2.acbl.org/documentLibrary/laws/ComparableCallsGuide.pdf How "official" is this information? About as official as most ...
Director's explanations on comparable calls
For the situation where dealer's partner calls out of turn, not accepted, and then the UI law applies to dealer's call, this document on the ACBL website clearly states that even knowledge of a withdrawn call from partner, even if not known what call it was, is not ...
Cashout Situation?
Count may be vital. Partner may need to cash a second diamond, even from AK10x setting up dummy's queen before trying a club (hoping you led from the K.)
Is that how one should tackle this?
This is a pet peeve of mine. Either say "natural and forcing" or "artificial and forcing". Yes, I know the former does not require an alert. And that the latter likely will have a few more words of explanation after "artificial and forcing". So many explanations would be better if ...
seeking information on ACBLscor's .MOV (movement) files
Pretend to set up a new section in ACBLscore and choose External instead of Mitchell or Howell. Then go all the way to the bottom of the list to find "Create your own One Winner movement". You create the movement and save it with a file name of no more ...
seeking information on ACBLscor's .MOV (movement) files
http://www.asecomputing.com/Jeanie.htm When I created a bunch of ACBLscore MOV files for hesitation, double hesitation, and triple hesitation movements, this program gave a "balance score" of how balanced the movement happened to be. (As you might expect, the ridiculous one-winner H8ROVER for 7 1/2 tables ...
Claim?
Facing cards and stating something about how many tricks will be taken is claiming - no cards (the Q) can be played. 10 tricks - but if he had not clearly faced his hand, and then 15 seconds later cashed the Q and made 11 tricks, I likely would have allowed it ...
BW 2/1: After 1!d-2!c
After 1-2-2NT-?, don't you run into cases where you would like to bid 3M with a very strong 3-card fragment? (I guess if it "absolutely" shows a four-bagger, you can't warn partner of a possible very weak combined holding in the other major.)
