David Birds Inappropriate Comment
I don't know what level of "prominence" is required for a member of the bridge community to have each and every one of his words turned upside down and inside out as we are doing here. But I could name about 50 BW contributors on the spot, myself included ...
David Birds Inappropriate Comment
I do not agree with David Bird's assessment of the bidding, let alone what came after it. So what? Commentators are not infallible. Why do we demand that they are? They entertain us for hours and hours (and I believe they do not receive enough appreciation). But if there ...
Flannery Alert and then . . .
Mark, as we all know, the first thing the director is supposed to do is gather the facts. When gathering the facts in UI cases such as this one, the director should start with the presence of UI, not with the presumed meaning of systemic or non-systemic calls. If both ...
Flannery Alert and then . . .
The problem with this solution is that imposes a different call on East, when it is West in the first place who has UI. If East has received UI as well, this may be a viable ruling. And of course West may well have reacted to the Alert. But the ...
Flannery Alert and then . . .
Ask them if they play 2 as weak two, and what a 2 response means if they do.
Say No To Cheats

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: KQTxx x AK AQxxx
I don't like the 4 bid. Did 3 already promise extras? If so, I would have preferred 3NT.
Say No To Cheats
Steve and Yu, if the publishing of participants in advance is all that happens, I have no problem with it. I fully agree that players should have the right to make their decision whether to enter an event or not based on who else has already registered. I am merely ...
Flannery Alert and then . . .
A priori the opponents are only entitled to information regarding partnership methods. However, the director should investigate if the partnership has a tendency to forget (in particular in context of conventions like Flannery, Ghestem, various overcall structures over 1NT, etc). If so, this must be revealed as well. If the ...
Flannery Alert and then . . .
The players do not automatically lose their right to rectification in all cases when they fail to call the director immediately after an infraction has occurred. In certain situations they do, in others they do not. Calling the director immediately is particularly important if the facts are in dispute. However ...
