What happens after a psych
OK, thanks Ed. The details could be discussed, but in general your suggestion sounds reasonable. But in order to implement something like that, the ACBL would need to set up a psych logging mechanism like they have in Australia, according to the OP.
What happens after a psych
Ed, I am still interested in what you think it takes to establish a pattern of psych bidding of a given type which would be considered an implicit agreement. Bridge law 40.C.1 makes it clear that if such an implicit agreement exists, it is not legal.
What happens after a psych
OK Ed, so how many times psyching in similar circumstances DOES it take before it becomes an implicit agreement?
What happens after a psych
Mark, again I am 100% in agreement with you, but would make one key addition. So-called "baby" psyches by definition NEVER need to be "fielded" by psycher's partner. For example, the auction goes 2 clubs by me, 3 diamonds by leftie, 3 hearts by my partner, and 3 spades ...
What happens after a psych
Charles, as you have never psyched with the partner in question before, then she did NOT "have more reason than the opponents to be aware of the deviation", and she would be able to honestly answer "NO" to the suggested question from earlier on. Consequently, if I were the director ...
What happens after a psych
Mark, I could not have put it more clearly and succinctly! 100% agreed, with one very small exception: I don't believe that psyching is vehemently supported by "most bridge players". I have it on good authority that psyching at the highest levels of bridge is becoming quite rare (with ...

PSYCHED OUT
FFS yourself Richard. Time for you to take your own blinders off. What I have been saying all along is: 1. I believe that psyches overall are not good for the game 2. Regardless of #1, I believe that so called 'baby' psyches cannot possibly be psyches at all. If ...
PSYCHED OUT
A further related excerpt from Meckstroth In The Well: _________________________ Ian Casselton Slightly contentious perhaps, but in top level events, e.g. anything from the WBF but also Spingold, Vanderbilt, Reisinger etc, where you should you draw the line on system regulation(s), and perhaps more importantly, why? Ian C ...
PSYCHED OUT
An interesting exchange with Jeff Meckstroth In The Well just now. So Larry Cohen and I are not alone. John Wood Hi Jeff, Congratulations on the Hall of Fame...richly deserved. Now just need to get the other half of Meckwell inducted. Two quick questions, related to an earlier comment ...
