Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Mindful revoke
Once I claim, my policy is to never revert to playing out the hand. I would explain my claim with my hand exposed stating each card to play, trick by trick if necessary, and call the TD if the opps do not accept the claim. But I would never pick ...
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
Michael, you beat me to the same question. I cannot find any official Alert reference that would support item 5.
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
" Perhaps when I announce the (semi) forcing 1 NT I should add, “may have 4 spades.” If you do thenb you are making up your own announcement rules. Announcements are limited to just a few phrases, such as "15-17", "forcing", "may be short", "transfer". "May have 4 spades..." is not ...

Why not do it the other way around and follow the ACBL alert procedure? Pre-alert your system and alert what is alertable. If your side declares then you can remind them about the bids that were not alerted but are different. Over-alerting can be just as bad as under-alerting. If ...

No Alert on all except 6. 1x-1y;1N showing a strong NT is alertable; it is not announced. See the ACBL Alert Chart and Alert Procedure doc. 7 is covered by the Alert Procedure: "Example: 1♥-P-1♠ If 1♠ promises a five-card suit (when playing an opening 2♦ bid as ...
Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?
Ray, the TD did invoke the "experienced player rule" and it was not worth arguing the point. You were also there and surely realize that weak JS are quite common in our area. Just the same, I did not know the opps and thought they might be C players (it ...
Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?
I tried that last week at a sectional. The opps bid 1-(P)-2. There was no alert, so I passed in 4th seat. Then opener passed. I called the TD, saying (away from the table) I would have bid 3 had I known. The TD ruled ...
Splinter or natural?
Depends on which partner I am playing with.
What Does This Bid Mean?
I would think you have 3 as a GF so don't need another bid also GF. But 3 would ask for more definition from partner, such as 3 hearts or decent stoppers in diamonds (assuming 2 is natural). So 3 is still needed as GF ...
Every Time I Think Things Might Improve, They get Worse!
"I think the specific complaint with the ACBL here is that instead of thinking about reducing each district's quota of regionals from 4 to 3 as attendance fell, they removed the cap and allowed the number of regionals to increase." The number of new regionals has not increased more ...
