about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Ethics Problem
North can have a takeout double without hearts - a strong 2=2=4=5 shape would be typical. South's 3 would imply a stopper, not a suit.
Ethics issue or not?
This account, unlike the other account of the same problem (and unlike the account in the similar "Director please" thread) makes it clear that East forgot a firm and evident agreement. There is no redress for damage caused by that, so North-South are doomed not to locate their heart fit ...
Ethics Problem

Director, please!
I am utterly unable to detect any relationship at all between the question I asked and the answer you appear to have given. But I am getting tired of talking to a brick wall. You are prepared to state as fact, on the basis of no evidence at all, that ...
Director, please!
Suppose East-West were the more experienced pair. And suppose South, a novice, asked you "Why is he allowed to bid 2 to show majors when he hasn't got majors, then correct 2 to 2 thus stopping me from ever bidding my hearts?" What answer would you ...
Director, please!
Well, maybe the OP can tell us how it was known that "2C was Michael's". After all, if South didn't know that 2 was Michaels he would have bid hearts - did he guess? did he ask? Not that it matters. Whatever the alerting regulations are (and "cuebids ...
