Considing Otpions When Leading Against A Grand Slam.
There is no double squeeze unless South guards diamonds and North guards hearts. I thought South had six spades and bid spades at her first or second opportunity, making it unlikely that she had five hearts. In that case, the theoretical losing option would have been to play for 3-3 ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
16B1 covers what information a player may use when in receipt of unauthorized information from partner. Therefore, it overrides 16A under the principle that the more specific governs over the more general. In particular, see 16A1(c), which refers to 16B1 as an exception.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
That's not what "unauthorized information from another source" refers to. It includes overhearing a remark at the next table, seeing a director walk by with a copy of the hand record because of an appeal at another table and the like. Law 16B covers "extraneous" information from partner.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
"That is your opinion, and you are entitled to it. My opinion is quite different. I would never be leading a diamond on the actual auction." The appropriate response is "I would never be leading on the actual hand, since the ace of diamonds appears to be missing." This is ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I'm going to make one more effort. It's the dog that didn't bark in the night.

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Levin could have bid 4NT directly over 4C. The only additional information he received after bidding 4D would usually have tilted him away from 4NT unless he either (1) had a diamond void or (2) made a mistake on the previous round. He didn't bid 5NT after the RKC ...
The Whole Story
There was none. It's an analogy, given that appeals committees could be deciding the winners of national championships.
The Whole Story
The "Oh, Shit" case was decided by about 20 people, not the usual 5. I was scheduled to be one of them until I recused myself. However, I have heard from some involved that the size of the committee caused procedural difficulties.
TD calls and 'failure to play bridge / subsequent or consequent?
There is no need for a sanity check, you have correctly stated the interpretation of the Laws Commission, which agrees with that of the European Bridge League and the World Bridge Federation. This matter has been closed for some time and it is not up to individual committees or director ...
