EBU regulations HCP upgrading.
"It isn't illegal to always raise an invite to 3nt to 3nt as far as I know" Then it's not an "invite"; it's a game force. But assuming that you - and presumably your partner - tell your opponents what you're claiming to us, namely that it's ...
EBU regulations HCP upgrading.
"As far as I know I have no obligation to tell my partner anything. I have an obligation to tell my opponents what my agreements are ..." Agreements are things that you have with other people - in the case of bridge, with your partner - not with yourself. Three of the fundamental ...
EBU regulations HCP upgrading.
I think that the EBU regulations on opening 1 are perfectly clear, but you appear to have a problem with them. What is it? FWIW, you are mistaken in your comment on the Henry Bethe hand: it's permissible to open that with a forcing, strong 1 in ...

Asking the Opponents to Stop Alerting
As others have said, it depends on your Regulating Authority. In EBU's jurisdiction the position is made very clear in the current Blue Book: "4 A 3 Alerting and announcing are compulsory; a player may not ask opponents not to alert or announce."
Life Master Pairs Mess

Life Master Pairs Mess
Don't overlook the fact that matchpoint contestants receiving Ave+ always get at least their session score on the other boards, a result which is at least equal to and may exceed what results from Not Played.

The Laws are as they are, and we don't get to make up our own when we don't happen to like them. Ask yourself what would you be saying if the result of a major event had been determined by some ruling that violated the Laws.
