Revoke Question
When you revoke a second time in the same suit, it doesn't attract an automatic trick adjustment so I think this will just be a one trick adjustment.
Mindless revoke
I know the rules, but the revoker might be able to run an argument that the ruff wasn't a played card as it was exposed in the act of claiming or something like that. The point is that you should never be suggesting to the TD what the penalty ...
Mindless revoke
Other. I call the TD to inform him of the irregularity; what happens next is entirely up to the TD.
Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?

I hope February pricing remains that cheap in October. A return MEL-TAO-MEL in ...
Alertable? (WBF regs)
The general rule I like to follow is that if you need to ponder whether or not a call is alertable, you should alert it just to be on the safe side. Note, I responded to this poll on the assumption that screens were in use where the recommended practice ...
2022 WBF tournament location
Personally, my fingers are crossed that 2020 will be in Qingdao. Direct flights from London, Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Dubai, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney - so I think you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere in the world that you couldn't reach with a one-stop service.
