[BLML] Delayed challenge to a claim [SEC=UNOFFICIAL]

Law 69A, first sentence:

"Agreement is established when a contestant assents to an opponent's claim
or concession, ++and++ raises no objection to it before his side makes a call
on a subsequent board or before the round ends, whichever occurs first."

Sven Pran:

>Not so fast please.
>The non-claimers have accepted (conceded) the claim by restoring their
>cards to the board. The may, however, challenge the claim at a later time
>in which case Law 71 applies.

Richard Hills:

Not so fast please.

The non-claimers have "assented" to the claim, but have not yet "agreed
(conceded)" to the claim, because they have "raised an objection" within
the Law 69A time limits.

Sven's interpretation would be correct if "++and++"was instead replaced
with the hypothetical 2017 phrase "++or alternatively that contestant++".

Best wishes,
