Active Ethics?
Imagine that partner had alerted and correctly explained your bid, then bid 2H. What sort of hand would you expect partner to have and what would you do?

Max Schireson's bidding problem: AT J83 AKQ75 Q52

How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
John, I don't think asking bids like this are psyches per se, because I don't think they promise anything. In principle you might gain information on how high to compete; for example holding 6 spades and nothing outside when pard opens 2S, if he responds 3D (bad hand ...
Bidding for the 2017 Laws
Something like: In law the near cause is looked to not the remote cause.
