What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
I have some sympathy for that position, though I think it would be better to take the big boys to task if they play slowly enough to cause problems. OTOH, in a team event, there's more opportunity to make up for "overtime" hands than there is in a pair ...
Suit Agreement and Slam Move after 2NT Open
Whatever those are.
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
I think I have a solution: once someone opens the bidding, both opponents are required to pass for the rest of the auction. It won’t be bridge but it will certainly make things simpler for the poor students.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
When the auction even looks like it’s about to be over, the bidding cards need to disappear instantly. At least that seems to be what most people around here think.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
There’s nothing wrong with the current law (law 8) regarding timing. We just need to find directors willing to consistently enforce it.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Thoughtless, clueless, or both.

Precision? Horrors! You can't teach people Precision! That's unAmerican, or something!
I am still not sure about the correct procedure here
I don't recall any guidance like that, Phil.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Heh. Lately, at the clubs here, the bridgemates aren't activated until folks are in the middle of the first board. This is guaranteed to lead to delays in the first round. :-(

People keep talking about sending partner away from the table, but players don't have the authority to do that.
