It Happened One Day
Roy, I've had opponents argue (in English) about what their auction meant, in the middle of the auction, in front of a director. Nothing was said to them, even when we pointed out to the director that they were doing that. We were told to just play on. So ...
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
According to 66D in the 2017 laws: http://www.worldbridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2017LawsofDuplicateBridge-nohighlights.pdf (and I know that it was also in the earlier laws), "After play ceases, the played and unplayed cards may be inspected to settle a claim of a revoke, or of the number ...
Is this the correct ruling?
Two of the tricks that declarer lost were before the revoke: "LHO cashed two rounds of diamonds and continued a diamond.". Those can't be transferred at all. So the maximum tricks declarer can be awarded is 11.
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
I wonder if part of the problem with European pairs is that they may have gotten used to system cards being written in a language that is non-native to them, and getting a verbal answer is easier? I was very shocked to get a card in Norwegian in a tournament ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
In the Swiss League (teams, screens), the director went around the first round, checking that every pair had two convention cards, and had placed them so the opponent could access them. (That's my good example.) Playing in the mixed teams cup (also teams, with screens, but individual matches arranged ...
The Evils of E-W and Sitouts
At the club I used to direct at, there were always more people requesting NS than the number I could accomodate (i.e. more than half the field). So it made sense that whenever there needed to be a sitout, the sitout was NS. If I had complaints (never twice ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
I know that you took away from the conversation that her claim was about having more MPs than you made her automatically a better player, but I wonder if her talk about MPs was code for experience, and what she was offended by was that someone who is much younger ...
NABC Appeal
I would think that the question of how to play the hand would be something easily polled by a director of a comparable peer group, given the auction with a 4D bid and proper explanations, no?
Brink-Drijver become Swiss
I replied to you on a different thread, but why do you think that a B permit is the only way to prove residency in Switzerland? There's also an L permit, which many have to get before a B permit. This permit also allows work and residency. (There's ...
Some words from Monaco
In Switzerland, it tends to be fairly easy for EU citizens to get B permits, but they still have restrictions on B permits for EU citizens from the newer EU countries, and those people might end up with L permits, which still authorize living and working in Switzerland, but must ...
