What is a ‘convention’?

Meckwell versu Cappelletti
My choice is CAT (soon to be in a Bridge World issue) X = 4+H, if only 4 then 5+ another 2C = 4+S, if only 4 then 5+ another 2D = Equal length Majors 2H,2S = Real suit 5+ good X and 2C can also be a different type of ...

NICKELL Narrowly Wins 62-Board Semi Final
I agree 100%. If you play in tempo,you should never be penalized for lack of time. How many pairs events have you been penalized by followed a slow pair getting 10 or 12 minutes for 2 hands round after round?

Peg, I think you have it, ACBL to establish sanctions and maybe the director to assign cumulative demerits to a player or pair depending on severity of the slow play.
