Robert Frick question:

>>When two players agree on a convention
>>name but have different personal
>>understandings, the opponents are entitled
>>to know _______________.

Eric Landau answer:

>...anything you know that might be relevant
>to understanding partner's call. It's that
>simple, and it works no matter what you put
>between "When" and "the opponents are
>entitled to".

Richard Hills quibble:

...anything you know "through mutual
experience or awareness of" (Law 40A1(a))
your particular partnership.

When playing the Simple Blackwood
convention you explain pard's 5C response
as zero or four aces. You do not explain 5C
as zero and only zero aces because you
observe an ace in your own hand.


A Director contemplating a ruling about a
confused partnership's pre-existing mutual
understanding may discover that the
confused partnership is so completely
confused that the Director is unable to
collect any Law 85A1 evidence.

In such a case the Director applies the tie-
break Law 21B1(b):

"The Director is to presume Mistaken
Explanation rather than Mistaken Call in
the absence of evidence to the contrary."
