Implicit private understanding?
Ray, NT overcalls that go outside the range of 14 - 19 HCP do require an Alert.
You be the Comittee .
Jeff, let's try it your way with your 75% for 6. So, you get 75% of our 12 top (8),and 25% of our 6 average (1.5) for a matchpoint score of 9.5. If I assign your score as 1430, I have to give you a ...
You be the Comittee .
Jeff, you look to see in ACBLscore what the matchpoint value is as either score. You then assign as the lower one and give a positive adjustment for the NOS and a negative adjustment for the offenders. You use the lower score as that will improve the rest of the ...
You be the Comittee .
Jeff, my example was based upon two possible scores. In that instance, it is correct to use the lower score because the adjustment you will give is a positive adjustment. To use a higher score, you would be giving a negative adjustment, which makes it look like you are penalizing ...

Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
The ACBL does not legislate a player's judgement in hand evaluation. In the call I cite above, I explained to the caller that one person's evaluation of a hand as being "weak" is entirely within their partnership agreements, noy in the judgement of the director. We look at ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
This hand sounds very similar to a ruling call I received on Tuesday. The bidding had been the same, except West asked several questions after the 3 call before passing, and then East reopened the bidding. The question in the call was rather the UI from the questions prompted ...
