Partner forgets agreement/ UI/ Fielding a psych
What MI, that partner misbid?
Partner forgets agreement/ UI/ Fielding a psych
It was a gambling 4 bid.
Partner forgets agreement/ UI/ Fielding a psych
I try to give directors the benefit of any doubt, but this was a hometown ruling with no basis in the Laws. Opponents are entitled to know your agreements, not what is in your hand.
