by a significant proportion of such players, of whom it

is judged some might select it.

Note that it is not good enough to say 'I would

always have done this'. If you really do, I imagine

you must have had some bad results from it when

your LHO had been about to rebid 3NT and

redoubled instead!

NEIL Hayward asked, 'What if dummy has a

diamond hidden behind a club? A singleton

diamond appears on table. Case A: Defenders do

not cash a second diamond (suit contract), seeing

a ruff coming. Case B: Defenders 'force' dummy

to ruff. Later, the hidden diamond appears.'

When dummy has a hidden card and revokes

because of it, the TD can adjust in equity using Law

64C, but there is no automatic revoke penalty -

there has to be damage before an adjustment is

made. If dummy doesn't revoke but the defenders

are misled or otherwise damaged, the TD can adjust

using Law 12A1 because dummy has breached Law

41D which tells us how dummy's cards must be laid

out. r

PLEASE be aware that the EBU no longer

permits the use of the EBU20A system card. The

approved EBU20B has been the sole type

available from the EBU Shop and website for a

number of years. If you are still using the EBU20A

type please switch to the EBU20B, and note that

from 1st April 2017 we will enforce the use of the

EBU20B card at all EBU congresses*. Blank, and

simple pre-completed cards, can be downloaded

from ebu.co.uk/laws-and-ethics/convention-cards.

One feature of the EBU20B system card is the

section on the front cover which allows you to

highlight significant features of your system

which may not otherwise be obvious without

more detailed study of your card or knowledge of

your agreements - an example being to indicate

that a 1♣ opening may be a two-card club suit

and that the hand may also include an outside 5-

card suit. Please assist your opponents by

completing this section and making it available to

them prior to each round.

* The WBF card is only permitted at a few high

level events
