Fair point but I couldn't be sure other than no T or 9 of diamonds

2C was 1RF. I wish I could have abstained and not guess but the rules didn't let me. :)

5. 4+
6. I think 4 as it is hard to think of a hand that would only have 3

My belief is that Wignall as the Zone 7 representative was given the job of making it practically impossible to play HUMs. This was pretty disappointing given the style of systems in Australia and NZ. Who “gave” him the job I dont know but I believe it came out of the US. By way of contrast in a local NZ teams tournament HUMs are restricted against junior/intermediate players for the first 3 rounds of the 7 round qualifying stage.

As we dont play kickback or minorwood we also play responder is required not to show 0/3 when clubs are the trump suit rather 5C shows 0 only. Similar for diamonds where 5D would show 1 only. Would this suffice as evidence that it is expected that keycarder has at least one keycatd (although maybe under the standards for documented evidence requirements that would only apply for the minors????).

As you can probably tell we mainly cuebid vs blackwood.

Steve - I am interested in this as I have a documented agreement with partner in a 0/3 (or 1/4 situation) that responder must bid slam with 3 (or 4). Does that affect the responses to scenarios 1 & 2?

If we go down this path I think every suit bid should be at least 4 unless Backwood or stayman (and their responses)

How about ask the participants to pay an amount that they choose for each game/event? Ie pay what you want

What does “approximately balanced” cover? If there is no specific definition the what would you expect it to cover?

Would 4 over 2NT shown a void, therefore 4 after 3 shows a singleton A? or perhaps a singleton K?
