Does anyone know if this is strictly an ACBL regulation or if it applies in non-ACBL jurisdictions as well?

If strictly an ACBL regulation, it seems appropriate to me that only those who are either in ACBL land or have a reasonable (self-defined) amount of ACBL exposure should vote one way or the other.

If the same rule applies in your non-ACBL area, then it would clearly be appropriate to vote based on your knowledge of your own situation. A NO vote would mean you weren't aware until at least the present controversy but confirmed that it applied at some time afterwards.

Except when he (correctly) interprets it as offering a 5-2 fit for game in the absence of a stopper in the 4th suit.

10 opposite 14 is better than 9 opposite 15 which gives you another slight plus.

Vandy or Spingold final some years ago and can't remember who after Meckwell opened, invited and then sold out to undoubled Opps at the 4 level (correctly). “How could they have a partnership if they respected each other's bids?”

The weak hand proposed should surely just bid 1N.

Playing in a low level KO at the Pittsburgh Nationals some years ago. The auction went P(Sherryl then GF, now wife)-(1S)-4S (me). 4th seat “What does that show?”. Sherryl, looking at her void “He wants to play 4”. I did, just making. I had 8 solid to the 9 and an outside trick. She came up with one as well.

That does make the 24 HCP more likely.

For the folks bidding 4NT, are you settling for game or does it depend on doubler's bid?

What am I missing here? What structure are you playing that this is anything but a 2 response?

Maybe he fell ill when he realized he had passed initially.

As intriguing as I find the invitation to join your venture of extor… uh that is restitution, I must point out that the fault lies not with Mr. Hammond but with yourself. He clearly showed you the way and yet you failed to understand or appreciate it. Hieing myself down to the Phoenix zoo with IPad in hand (typewriters are SO last century), I engaged my new opening lead coach for a mere 2 dozen bananas per week with a bonus of a pound of peanuts for every session I come in above average. While he has yet to earn any bonuses, the dramatic improvement in my opening leads is the talk of the club.

I'm betting the monkey against the field in the next Vandy prediction.

Why didn't I bid 2 the first time if it wasn't a GF?

Three points in favor of choosing instead of showing two suits. You aren't good enough to insist on the 5 level. Your are longer. If partner has made an ELC X, you will end up where you want to be anyway.
