What is 3D?
Re: "Std. Am. 2/1 GF." I not too long ago had "Modern Standard" on my card. A very good local player objected, saying that was confusing (apparently she didn't register the "2/1 GF" checkbox right below the "Modern Standard" line. Basically, she insisted that "Standard American" is ...

A reverse is a mechanical action. If you rebid a second suit that is higher ranking than the first suit you bid, that is a reverse, period. Your question revolves around what strength it shows. There is a logical reason for reverses showing extra values when responder has bid at ...
Slow play
"Every couple years"? I guess you haven't been paying attention.
