I guess Oren's Bols tip would not have worked well here for declarer: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/my-bols-tip/
Declining the revoke penalty
"(I define nasty player as one who calls the director when I take a few extra seconds to make a call, one who berates and/or yells at his partner and opponents, one who gloats over good results" It seems to me you are doing people in games you direct ...
Money saving proposal.

Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
