Anonymous appeal opinion
Are the cartels involved in the appeal?
Memphis Natl Fast Pairs win taken away by Directors
Note that they did not address the entire auction tempo. I suggest we get better as a community understanding the entire tempo of an auction. See my point above about how the tempo of prior bids potentially relates to the bid in question in establishing this players tempo.

There was misinformation. Our job as directors is to determine what might have happened with the correct information. We can poll to find out. 1. You have to do the work to determine their actual agreement. It's rare for standard players to play inverted on in competition. It's ...
Misplace an Ace, or Two

This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
It's not relevant to assume Lebensohl over 1N works the same way as over Double of weak 2s. Pages and pages of notes for Lebensohl over 1N often generate short discussions for Lebensohl over weak 2s. The checkbox to which Paul refers is in the 1N section.
Director, Please
More lawyer talk? We are reading rules, and we are not required to be lawyers to parse them. I quoted a very very specific rule. 2k could perhaps be natural, even if not intended to play there. For example, strong forcing overcalls, or new suit by overcall side. Who knows ...
2 diamond bid weak
The directors get to decide what they believe. Evidence can sway belief, but often directors can apply knowledge of the players, field, human nature to sort out what really happened. Proof is rare.
