BIT Ruling and Aftermath
In that scenario, my policy is to rule against myself in any judgement type matter. Even a clear application of a rule would be carefully explained in gentle terms. Must keep the club members content.
Legal? Ethical?
Thanks Steven F, I missed that bit about an uncontested Auction.
Legal? Ethical?
Steve, In Australia we have a fairly simple (cf. ACBL & EBU ) alerting scheme. Since at least 2008, a 2C Stayman response is not alertable. A natural 2C sign off type of response thus would be alertable.
Wuhan Restaurants
20 years ago the local delicacy was River Snails, tastes a little like prawns maybe. The locals were impressed that I ate them. Anyone that tries them - please let me know if they are still available and what you think of them.

Director Ruling: First ever situation
68D. Play is suspended ... As the op described, so not ceased - then it follows as per the rest of 68D
Overbidding at the start of a session, difficult to overcome. A common fault I seen in others also. One time in a strong field went for -1100 first board in a six board round. Resolved to concentrate hard, wiped the smiles off ops by board 6.
Dummy wants to see played tricks
Dummy acted unlawfully. LAW 43 ‐ DUMMY’S LIMITATIONS Except as Law 42 allows: A. Limitations on Dummy 1. (a) Dummy may not initiate a call for the Director during play unless another player has drawn attention to an irregularity. (b) Dummy may not call attention to an irregularity during play ...
