I imagine 2 is new-minor-forcing (or 3rd suit forcing)

Playing 2-way NMF, is 2 (by a passed hand) natural?
e.g. P-1/1-1NT/2?

Unless you play 1-2NT as natural with 11/12?

Partner's failure to alert is UI to you. I do not see any AI here.
In deciding your bid, you should assume that Partner alerted your 3 transfer and you should now bid accordingly over 5.

Given that 2 was not GF, it seems reasonable to assume that 4 is non-forcing. On that basis, 4 seems like an underbid.

Director's ruling was based on “us” winning the revoked trick. He did not see a difference between me (the offender) winning the trick and my partner winning the revoke trick.

The majority got this right by bidding 4. I did not :(
Partner held
76543 42 AQ KQ96
I polled partners hand and 55% voted for pass

6 was cold at the table (west held K and A)

The converse is also true. I open 1 out of turn. The bidding reverts to RHO who opens 1. I am allowed to overcall 1. Partner now knows that I have a full strenght opening bid for my 1 overcall.

I would have bid 3 last time, instead of X

Is Qxx better than Kxx? If partner has a singleton, Kxx will produce 1 trick 50% of the time.

The North hand was
QJ74 KT65 J4 AKQ

There are 12 top tricks in NT by North, but not easy to get there after a 2 rebid. 6 is also very good.

5 was the winner at the table, making +1 (West held Kx). A bad break doomed 5

Is there an extension to Exclusion Blackwood whereby 5 here (asking for Aces outside of ) can be followed by 6 (asking for Kings outside of Clubs). Just a thought :)

With 18/19, some of us would rebid 2NT, intending to follow-up with 4NT over a 3NT bid by partner.

Paul. My reading of the ACBL Alerting Procedures is that the Announcement of Transfers is technically correct

"Examples: 1NT-P-2♦
The 1NT bidder will say aloud, “Transfer.”

I like 2NT to protect the Q5. It is Matchpoints

I think so. Another simulation (only 1,000 deals) was run holding AK62 J763 62 987 opposite a 1NT opening (15-17) where the matchpoint result seems to favour Stayman followed by 2 if opener responds 2 (so called Crawling Stayman).
