ACBL Masterpoint® Awards
Sorry to all for the mess. This is all on me. I carelessly and stupidly applied the rule that bye teams don't get credit for a win for overall purposes to those teams who won one match in a four-way. Those teams do get credit for a win for ...
Turkish Winter Nationals- New Record
Not so fast, Crocodile Dundee. That's not a knife! The Las Vegas NABC in the summer of 1991 routinely saw table counts double that number. Attendance for the ten day tournament was over 24,000 tables.
Stop card out of turn

Opening 1N with fewer than 10HCP, Super Charts
The director's ruling was that to open a 9 HCP 1NT by agreement is not legal on the Superchart. The director did not find evidence to determine such an agreement existed, so no score adjustment was made. The Diamond team decided not to appeal that ruling.
Can I bid "gambling" 3NT? - not a serious question
He would probably refer you to Law 7B2.
Is this a psyche?
"Psychic call: A deliberate and gross misstatement of honor strength and/or suit length." From the Definitions section of the Laws.
