Who cares is: If you are a “sport” you get government subsidies (good!) but you have to submit to drug tests and let the CAS decide who is or isn't a cheater (bad!).

What I often do is post a bidding problem with the first bid, and then whatever the majority vote is, I now post a bidding problem with the same hand for the second bid.

I am aware of the regulation and try to follow it, but sometimes I forget.

So does that mean
1NT-2
2-3
3
denies a club fit? Or that
1NT-2
2-3
4
denies 4 spades?

How do you play slam interest or slam force with 4 spades?

Pard has shown a max with good heart support, why would you want to bid 4NT natural here?

Usually when the hand viewer reacts like that, it's because you've inadvertantly told it the wrong person is on lead.. maybe the dealer was wrong or maybe there was a skipped pass or something in the auction.

For this particular problem, 4 would show that you've forgotten the agreements. As noted elsewhere, the agreements may not be optimal.

If half of Responder's high cards are in diamonds, do you want to push to game anyway? Kxx x AQTxx QJxx would be a GF for many but looks pretty dicey in 4S.

The theory behind the methods is that with a GF w/o slam interest, Responder just bids 4. The theory behind 4 for “all accepts” is that usually 2NT was just a game invite, so Opener doesn't reveal unnecessary information, but yet leaves Responder a couple of extra steps to make a slam try just in case that was what was happening.

Why? Don't you have a 4 card fit for one of partner's two shown suits?

It's surprising that the partnership has such detailed understandings about this but doesn't know whether 2 is forcing or not.

I suggest you read http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/cas-decision-on-fantoni-and-nunes/ and you will see much outrage over the fact that a pair that is widely believed to have cheated had their conviction overturned by the CAS. I think we would all be interested to know how the EBL is entitled to ignore the CAS decision despite the fact that the alleged cheating did not occur in an Olympic Game.

I look at the choice that got the most votes, that's #1. I look at the choice that got the second most votes. That's #2. I look at the choice that got the third most votes. That's #3. It's not rocket science.

Maybe we should get rid of bidding polls since nobody uses them. Or maybe it's “use a bidding poll if your question is unimportant because only a fraction of the BW users go there, but if your particular bidding question is important, then post as a general article.”?

Even if he was doubling based on his 7 running hearts?

And if you get a 2 ace response you intend to bid what?

It's hard to be unbiased since we know the answer already. But I would say 1. it's unlikely Pard has any hearts since we didn't hear about it, 2. “they say” it's bad to takeout double with a void and 3. he's got an awful lot of clubs. Maybe 2 is better.

The order of the codes doesn't matter.
