How do you know it is forcing? If he has no agreement on what the X is no doubt they have no agreements on whether 4 is forcing.

It would be nice to know how you and your partner play X. If it is penlty, I pass of course. If it is takeout I bid 4D. As you have no agreement I will pass.

As, Ambrose Mackie, is your attribution of a personal attack offensive to Ethan.

“Umm, the person was not a bridge player, knew that my wife was, wanted to do something nice and would not read the book as she would not understand it. Is that OK with you?”
If this person knew your wife would not understand the book, why did he give it to her?
I know this is not the meaning you intended, but it is exactly what you wrote. Perhaps you should look at how your own words can be misinterpreted.

Much Ado About Nothing.
Are you also not going to read Nabokov's “Lolita”, Mark Twain's “Huckleberry Finn”, most of Shakespeare's plays, Chaucer, Enid Blyton's Noddy books etc etc. This is political correctness gone mad.

Nedju, I suspect if you read all of Marten's books you would be a significantly better player.

"Yet Bird's treatment of the natives of Upper Bhumpopo would pass most tests for racial stereotyping.
Really? Do you not want to play like the witchdoctor? I do.

If anyone does not buy his books because of this, well bad luck for them.

1 was a good bid, the X was crass - something you might see from a BBO eggspurt. 1NT? Why? Does your partner not figure to have long ? 2 is ok but I prefer 2 3 is an overbid and 4 was ridiculous. What on earth was 4H? Was this the Saturday afternoon duplicate?

The purpose of a pre empt is to take away bidding space from the opponents when you have a weak hand. If they pre empt first, they have a weak hand as well. You do not want to take space away from your partner. Also bidding over a pre empt shows a good hand.

“Yes, requiring extra values to rebid 2♠ (opener) oftens (sic) causes all sorts of awkwardness.”
What awkwardness? Simply rebid 2 of the opened M as a catchall. It only causes difficulties if you see them in your own mind.

“I also play reverses are off after 2/1 GF established.” So Rich, you never bid the sequence 1 (P) 2m (P) 2 ?
This sequence does not exist for you? I ask this, because this sequence is a reverse. Whether it shows extra values or not is another argument.
