Director question
You mean this Laws text? 70E1 The Director shall not accept from claimer any unstated line of play the success of which depends upon finding one opponent rather than the other with a particular card, unless an opponent failed to follow to the suit of that card before the claim ...

Dirty Talk
Law 73E2 If the Director determines that an innocent player has drawn a false inference from a question, remark, manner, tempo or the like, of an opponent who has no demonstrable bridge reason for the action, and who could have been aware, at the time of the action, that it ...
Symmetric Two-Bids (clubs and diamonds both strong and artificial)

Happened to me about thirty five years ago in the pairs final of the London Congress (not a national event but in those days a fairly high-level tournament). I opened a strong club with a balanced 22 and played there facing a balanced 3. Partner [i]alerted[/i] and passed ...
