Are you forced to bid?
Do you play it differently for MP and IMPs? I believe actual situation was in IMPs.
3NT - perhaps this is where Jim is heading
"Partner, I have a stopper. Please pass if you have 8 other tricks" :)
Another Ruling
North is pulling, because redouble of South on the lead direction double from West means exactly: "Partner, my are bad and I am afraid of lead. Please pull if you cannot help me to stop hearts"
UPS Convention
Hi Bob, I believe it happened against you when my partner bite of and almost choked with part of his pen. By some reason he had pen in his mouth when he realized that I open 1NT with 6-5 in majors... (I did not do it by purpose, had 15 ...

And why do we need to "increase the number of similar contracts and similar opening leads on boards"? This supposed to be a bridge game tournament, not quiz solving competition. As for robot caused luck ... this particular luck you are trying to eliminate very strongly connected with skills. There is ...
Should a Committee, Overturn or Uphold This Ruling? (And how would you, as a director, have ruled?)
Sorry, side question. What about 1 bid by West. Was it alerted by East? If yes, what explanation was provided? My thoughts are: 1. EW using Mathe, so 1 bid that does not promise more than 3 cards in hearts is alertable. 2. East has duty to alert ...
