As usual the bid, if correct, is forbidden. Here 5 was chosen and could easily be wrong. Nothing with the BIT suggested 5 over X. But of course here 5 were right and it was corrected to 4X!?!. If X would be chosen and that was correct it would be corrected to 5 down or pass. I do not like it, whatever you choose it is corrected to the other bid, if you chose correct that is.

So if you choose 5 and it was correct, 5 was suggested by the BIT.
If you choose X and it was correct, X was suggested by the BIT.

Both cannot be suggested by the BIT over the other option, but always is for TDs and Appeals comitees.

I dont play this myself but I saw an idea above where you bid 3 transfer then 3 with 45 and you bid 3 directly with 54. Not optimal for rightsiding and not optimal for minors

If you always anwser 3 to 3, then responder can say:
3: 4
3: 4
3NT: both majors
Now we have concealed the opener distribution (except if he have 4card support in the shown major(s) ofcourse)

Wow, Im blown away :) One last question, how are you inviting slam with a single suited major and a 5+major and 4+ minor?

Hi Craig, this sounds interesting. What is the rest of your system? normal stayman or puppet? How are you showing slam interest with one long minor? 4m? Would love to hear the rest of the system.

He is deemed to have revoked even if he has a card in the suit as well.

It is easy to remember, but one could show 55 different shapes without going past 3NT. Your method shows 18, I do not think it is good enough :)

We have 11-13 balanced or 11-15 unbalanced with 3-card support when we complete the transfer.

I have thought of having something like the following after 1-1red-1M-2:
2//NT: 11-13 balanced.
3: 6+ 3M
3: 5+ 4 3M
3M: ??
3oM: 5+ 4!oM 3M
3NT: ??

Do this have any merit?

a lot of the links does not work, for example the first one should not be www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eda-EC0–OQ&t=78m03s but instead www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eda-EC0–OQ&t=78m03s

Or you could stop reporting every touch to the face and just report when they bend down and do it, their partner can't see it otherwise. It seems you just want to drown every board with useless info so the actual signals are harder to find.

I dont think stuff like the B scratching top of head at 29:28 should be recorded. The proposed signal is leaning down and scratching chin, cheek or forehead, else partner cannot see it.

1:19:54 Z schratches his forehead.
1:19:55 B Put his fist awkardly to the chest then scratches his crotch. Afterwards he shows 4 fingers.
1:21:54 B scratches his chest then scratches his crotch. Afterwards he shows 4 fingers.
1:21:59 B taps his closed fist 2 times then shows 1 finger and scratches his (front side of the neck, below the chin/cheek). He proceeds instantly to do all of this all over again but only tapping once.

I have looked at a number of boards now and when they have done any mannerism I have been able to guess at least one of their holding in a suit and not been wrong once after I have looked at the board. I think that is quite alarming.

I have been able to guess holdings such as JTxx, AJx, Axx and xxx.
