Mindful revoke
I don't see any rules issue with proper disclosure. For revokes, there really is not much leeway in law 10.A though. There is the option to completely ignore a revoke that has no impact on the play. Don't call attention to it. I have done this as ...
Mindful revoke
David, It's my guess based on other writings that MR would not take this revoke trick.
Duck or Cover?
Playing low can only gain if declarer makes an error. There are different layouts of the other 3 suits where declarer might win the Ace from Ax to avoid blocking a squeeze suit, or from Axx where declarer want's two club entries to dummy, but I can't see ...
Insufficient Bid over a 2NT Opening Bid
Maybe, but that requires the players to know the director is not done yet.

Insufficient Bid over a 2NT Opening Bid

How far do you have to go in "protecting" your opponents?
Right Brian. And there seem to be a bunch of people that want alerts when the opps don't know what they are doing, and want to enforce subtle laws that most don't understand against these same players, when their opponents are more expert and more likely to understand ...
The Evils of E-W and Sitouts
Our game starts exactly on time 90+% of the time. There are a few that show up at the last minute, but that does not mess us up. I find starting the game on time eliminates late players trying to time the "real" start time. If they want me to ...
2 parter
If we assumed 4 was CoG, I would not have picked Spades.
