I've no objection to the article, nor do I object to Sabrina trying to get clarification on the subtlety of when the cutoff applies. Merely suggesting that anger be reserved for greater wrongs. You can perform a task of interest without getting pissed. It's a free world, you ...
How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
I beg to differ. There is nothing that says the event has to be sanctioned. I dare say many a senior center runs games that are not sanctioned, and they can make their own rule exceptions however they please. One of those common exceptions is to limit psychs. I agree ...

How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs

What happens after a psych
Do you play psych vs psych? But Director, they psyched first on the hand.
Condition of Contest
Surely there are greater wrongs in this world to get pissed about.
Hendrik Sharples's bidding problem: 2 K9853 T8542 42
You reach down on the floor, grab that 2 and say, oh, you dropped this.
