Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I apologize for this question
A GF 2C reply that doesn't promise any length should be alertable, in any jurisdiction. Sensible jurisdictions encourage pre-announcement and insist on a box on the system-card for conventions to which opponents may need to prepare a defence. Law-makers should include more rules about topics like disclosure in the ...
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest
You are right Ed, West's statement is an infraction of law 73 not law 12. Thank you. I've corrected my last post. Again, IMO, West's suggestion that East change his call damaged NS. For the sake of argument, assume that East bid 4S by mistake. Such mistakes ...

Proving honesty of tournament organization
Please explain what you mean Hans. Suppose for example, at evening sessions, the organizer chose deal-sets where all finesses for the King worked. Pairs privy to such information would have an advantage. Would your software be able to detect those kinds of thing. I don't see how. It seems ...

Proving honesty of tournament organization
BigDeal is a wonderful program, pseudo-randomly generating every possible deal (eventually). Thank you, Hans. Are you using a Knuth randomness test? Hand-records usually contain statistical analysis of HCP, voids, singletons, honours, etc for each player. Woudn't these suffice to demonstrate randomness?
Curious accusation in Philadelphia
Professionals know the law and argue their case well. They're aware that directors usually rule for the side that shouts loudest. Familiarity means that experts are often on first-name terms with directors. Hence it's understandable (but deplorable) that directors tend to favour experts in their rulings.
