No idea how easy it's gonna be for BBO to make this technically possible, but I think John Gowdy's idea is great, and you could make it optional: free entrance for anyone not opting for the chance to play that team match with a top player, 2$ entrance charge for all those who do.

Gavin, doesn't this agreement hamper you in investigating slam? If a bid like the 3D in this example is descriptive, you usually know what game you want to play in opposite a weak raise via 1NT, so you might as well bid that the fast way and leave 3S to show the limit raise that so often borders on slam potential opposite a strong jump rebid? This was at least the reasoning within my partnership to reserve 3S for the limit raise. Would be interested to hear your - no doubt - larger experience here.

I like both the comments of Eric Leong and Adam Meyerson. Discussions on Flannery - or any other bidding agreement, for that matter - should be on relative success opposite other treatments. And this obviously includes the cases in which the Flannery-agreement left you unable to open e.g. a multi 2, a weak both-majors or a Fantunes 2major.
I wonder if Levin-Weinstein or another top pair playing Flannery have ever done that, and if so, if they'd be willing to share their analyses here?

Avon, is this because 1 tends to show five? Otherwise I wouldn't see the point of opting for a Moysian in a suit that LHO may well have 4 of.
