It’s in my system if my partner insists, but I rarely use it. With partners who have better uses for 4C I don’t use it at all. I especially don’t like it in auctions that start in a suit, I find most who love the bid think their 16 point hand is always worth ace asking love it because it keeps the bidding low. If that’s the rationale maybe they shouldn’t ask at all

didn't realize this was a hijack. seemed Like i was just responding. There is confusion about friends and include list amongst directors and players. If the ACBL wants to maintain and increase revenues, they might consider that letting people play where they want is about customer service. So maybe I misunderstood the intent of this post, but while rereading the link, i got the impression that reataining members might be important to the conversation. You don't retain members if you make them angry

When we bring this mess up, We get,
well tthe guest policy is the guest Policy. Except when it wasn’t. Two guests can’t play with each other. The directors have to keep track of 5% rule. When they purged the Friends list we lost the names of some include list people. It’s a nightmare every day. From my POV it was better when we had to ask for exceptions those shoulD have been added to include list not friends list.

I had a partner who played 1nt forcing showing an unlimited hand with at least 2 in openers major, I always felt it needed an alert.

I guess within 10 minutes doesn’t include 10 minutes late. If it does then no penalty should be given If it doesn’t 12 points for 4 boards it is.

I open 1D if I have just an opening and 1C if I can reverse either way my partner knows I’m not willing to bid NT. I play 2/1.

Bad rule there are so many possible meanings to a 2D bid after a strong 2C.

I use it as a cue Bid with 3 card support and 3D would be 4 card support. I show less than invitational hands with a simple raise

Partnership agreement. With a couple of partnerships I get them bidding too high. They r a little hung up on high card points. It poses a problem because I won’t bid a weak 2 with a four card major.

I think the defending players should get familiar with precision by reading a pamphlet on precision. They can probably google it. Even intermediates aren’t gonna be fast enough to read a defense at the table.
