Tempo question ( too fast over a jump)
I know Frances by reputation and therefore what Richard means, but his words could be misinterpreted as the opposite of what he meant. If Frances has never played in Flight B, it's not surprising she finds the quick 5 bid difficult to interpret.
Tempo question ( too fast over a jump)
"What does a very fast 5♣ bid suggest?" It has been a long time since Frances was a Flight B player. To me, it suggests no doubt that 5 is making. I haven't seen the player's actual hand, but I'd bet on void, clubs good ...
Corrected score?
In an MI case, the most fundamental thing to know is what was the actual agreement. ("No agreement" or any of the things Robin suggested is possible along with many others.)
Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
"That 1NT opening is a definite no-no, and misguided!" It may be one or the other, but I don't see how it can be both. If both 1 and 1NT are LAs, whichever of those is suggested by the BOOT is illegal. As Bud wrote, it seems that ...
So...now is time to consider an electronic Bridge Bulletin & Daily Bulletin?
Wow. $250K/yr seems tiny.
So...now is time to consider an electronic Bridge Bulletin & Daily Bulletin?
Polled in 2014: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/acbl-bridge-bulletin/ No guarantee the results would be the same now, of course. And as others have mentioned, BW readers may not represent the bulk of ACBL members.
So...now is time to consider an electronic Bridge Bulletin & Daily Bulletin?
"we can save over $1.2M of annual expenses by making this an online-only publication. Even if we assume advertising revenue is reduced, there is still over $1M of net benefit by eliminating this cost." What is the current amount of advertising revenue from the Bulletin? What do you think ...
Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
Agreed. Perhaps I should have written "infraction of another Law," but that wouldn't have been quite right either. To put it in simple terms: 1. when an opponent accepts the insufficient bid or call out of turn or whatever, the auction continues, and the table score will stand unless ...
Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
A 2 WJO might be comparable for a pair that didn't have a natural, weak 2 opening available. That's consistent with what Bud wrote ("few, if any"). Just for completeness: in the OP case, the Director should have given OP's partner the right to accept ...
Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
If offender makes a non-comparable call, and his partner is barred, the table score will stand with no later adjustment (unless there's an additional infraction somewhere).
