If playing something like xyz here it's NF because you have 2C to start some invite and 2D to start some game force available

I play something which I'm pretty sure I got from another article that I now can't find:
X=pen of a major or BAL inv
2D weak diamonds
2H=inv + C
2S= inv + D
2N=minors
3C weak clubs
3red inv+ transfer
3S strong 55 minors
3N to play
4 red xfer
4S 44 minors slam try

I won't be going because it's too far but I could see the appeal if I was able to make it. It's a tropical paradise with nice beaches and stuff. What better place to go on vacation and play bridge? I think that is the non-cynical appeal.

On 1 I think I'd play 2N as a random spade invite and play 3S as a blocking bid just like I would if there was no competition

No special agreements – new suits forcing or 3N to play

I agree it's also an interesting problem against humans when you can't infer Q position and they don't pitch hearts, but I think counting out that W is 1354 and E 2353 could still be quite useful.

I'd think W would be less likely to lead a if he holds Qxx than if he holds xxx especially considering his club holding which short of any other clues could be a useful way to guess it if they just pitch diamonds.

Thanks for the compliment Jim :) I think Robot bridge is just different – they never make some mistakes but also make the kind of mistake you see here of assuming you'll get your guesses right. I really like the opportunity robot bridge gives me to practice counting and visualizing like on this hand

I think by quickly Sylvia means without breaking tempo to think about it when Q is played

The 10HCP thing is just about upgrading into a weak NT right?

I thought that is was prohibited by ACBL even to psych a NT with a small stiff

Do you have a favorite suit combination (or one you think you get right and a lot of others get wrong)?

I would've thought that transfers after 1 would be an extra enticement to open 1 more often than if the 1 had standard responses since (I assume) the transfer auctions are nicer. Is that not the true?
