Agree. I'm passing, showing interest in playing here. Redouble should show a much stronger suit, suggesting to play vs xx.

Why would you pass 5 at IMPS? I really don't get it, unless you're afraid of pushing them to a making grand.

You know for sure that you're save in 6 is cheaper than letting them make 5 at this vulnerability. So deciding to take the push to 6 should be easy at IMPs. I agree that this is something you should decide over 5. (You might of course gamble that they can make exactly 5, and pass 6, but that's too much of a gamble, IMO.)

At MP it's a closer call, but even there I'd take the push to 6.

I voted 1 BECAUSE I play 1 over the overcall as 4-card+ and a round force. I don't find the alternative playable, though it used to be standard.

Yet another commercial for transfers….

I suppose, as Chris above, that E passed and I' south.

In my methods I'd bid 3, showing 2-3 small. That's not standard, though.

Hard to tell without system agreements for the continuation.

Do we play xyz? If not, is 1 or 2 the conventional GF?

I'd never even think about overcalling 2 on xx Jxxx xx AKJTx at adverse vulnerability. I know some who would, but I don't think it qualifies as normal. I wouldn't call it abnormal, though. Just bad. Of course I understand that it can work fine.

If I read a post without comments, it stays white. Also after one or more comments. Only if I click on it after comment(s), does it turn grey. (just checked a white post with one comment)

I've been experiencing the same as Tom the last couple of days.

East is allowed to ask about other relevant calls in the actual sequence. He can ask about the meaning of a double after 2 showing majors, but not about the meaning of a double of a natural 2 overcall.

I suppose he can find the answer to the latter question on the NS system card, but this knowledge is UI nevertheless.

Agree. As partner I'd treat it as both M initially.

You score the board independently for the two teams, giving them an individual IMP result on the board.

In a KO match, you use the average IMP result on the board.

If it's a VP scored event, the VP's in the match doesn't add up to 30 or 20.00 (depending of which scale is used).

Depends on the score from the other table, of course.

If 6 made, there's no damage, and result stands.

What matters most is whether passing 4x was a logical alternative with LHO's hand or not. If it wasn't, there's no offending side, and the result stands.

If pass was a LA, there's an offending side. Then the result for the offending side should be 4x. For the non- offending side, the result depends upon where the hand was played. In ACBL it would be 6. In most of the world it would be very different. The non-offending side would Get the expected score for 4x - the difference between the scores for 5!-6.

I don't see how that settles anything. I strongly disagree that's best. And it's definitely non-standard.
