Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Assign the blame
David L., thanks for handling this one. You said it before I did. :)
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
I'm pretty sure you meant "Oops," there aren't any directors, not that there aren't any "opps." Could this typo be corrected? On the merits, I'm not sure of the intended difference between "This would cause a problem" and the preexisting shortage that "might create a disaster ...

You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
Double and cue-bid is a 2 opener in my book, which is what W has with a 3-loser hand. E should get on the same page. Any chance this poll was posted by E?
