Re: 2012 PAW Management Thread -
By letter of the rule, they shouldn't, but as he is charged with a WC anyway and asked for it in time, I feel it would be a little strict not to count his picks, especially in a slam. The intent was clear and the player didn't get any unfair advantage.
I'd settle for a warning or something like that.
We have to establish for future cases what to do with WC that are erroneously posted in the commitments thread. Perhaps state something clearer than "not here please", e.g. "a WC request in this thread will not be valid".
It's not the first time a player has made this mistake.
