Mindful revoke
"What baffles me, after reading the Mindless Revoke thread elsewhere, is why you would play any other way." I think a fair few people on the other thread were clear on why they might behave differently.
Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?

Ruling fron Eastbourne
Frances said: "alert penalty doubles of suit contracts below 3NT". From what the blue book says, it is not just penalty doubles below 3NT that should be alerted but also undiscussed doubles that might be penalty. I have been ruled against on this basis before which left a pretty sour ...
