Is that a British thing? I think I can honestly say I've never heard anyone use a phrase like that, except maybe in the context of having already instructed dummy to run a suit (and most RAs have guidelines that address what "run" means).

I took the incident in this thread to be an outlier, not something that comes up so often that it's a serious omission in the Laws.


It is an outlier. Normally when a declarer uses the phrase “and again” the intention is, as Lamford says above, incontrovertible.

Isn't one of SB's super powers the ability to controvert anything? :)
