Make life easy for CHO when he's holding the common “good-9-to-poor-11”hcp hands , so hard to handle confidently after a 1C opening

Just one miniscule difference : Michael Phelps' fantastic record has never been tainted by any suspicion of c#34ting

@ Pierluigi . While you are at it , why not also quote Lance Armstrong's Tour de France record ?

I suspect that it's because Gianarrigo Rona attended the Congress , and Host Pooh-Bahs didn't want any dirty laundry “aired”

Hi , Liam !
I like “Beauchamp's Rule” ( raise a known 5+ major suit with 2 of 3 top honours tight unless another bid is outstandingly better )
No , not “resulting” just on this board - watch out for instances in future . Cheers.

I saw this issue nicely resolved in a medium-to-high stakes rubber club twenty-something years ago , where the manager had pick-up slips for rubber scores and everybody held an account . A particularly-annoying ( some might have called him recidivist - Sydney players would recall the late O.M. ) kibber did just this in a rubber-going contract .

Declarer was awarded his contract , and the rubber , defenders with the defeat - and the rubber scored-up incomplete , accounts were settled with the difference taken from the offender's balance

I knew that Duplicate and Rubber Laws differ , of course , not sure it was kosher , but struck me as Solomonic

“Points , Schmoints”
I have played countless oppo partnerships with local masterpoint currency equivalent to ACBL 13-15K total , and whom by attrition ( “monkeys & typewriters” perhaps ) have scragged a few “decent results in national events” about whom _I_ would be embarrassed to file a player memo , especially after that defense …….

Hi Doug
Hagiographic reference :-

www.bridgeguys.com/ACOL/swine_convention.html
Addendum 1NT-X-2C* can be played as “clubs-and-a-major”

Of course you are correct , it's arbitrary which arrangement you choose .

The Death Hand in any forced XX method is the weak 4333 ; in SWINE with 4clubs I think it best to show “clubs-and-a-major” , with 4diamonds “clubs and diamonds”
Opponents will often rescue you in a higher-ranking ( i.e. Major ) suit at the two-level when they've really got you on the ropes double-dummy :)
