Some rulings questions
Absent some other agreement, if you show a 2-suited hand and partner bids a suit which isn't one of yours, it shows a weak hand with great length and pass is definitely a LA. In this case, though, with long clubs and a bust he could have passed 2 ...

Director question
That is not so, Ed. Declarer said he would make 7 if the queen dropped.
Director question
