Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
CAS Ruling on Fantunes
Under the heading of "Any other suggestions," how about spelling "poll" correctly? Unless, of course, if you think that having our administrators swim would help the situation.
The standard meaning of this bid
I will add my voice to the puppet to 3NT camp. But I will concede that splinter is standard.
Can I pass? or not?
As Paul Gipson said a few posts up, it is not possible that partner is now looking for a grand slam as partner passed 5. This is AI to you. And, if this could be any more clear, partner has another bid. If partner does anything other than pass ...

Play problem
Yes, we were playing XYZ. I don't see any reason why 4 would not be a splinter (pardon the double negative). Having said that, I suspect the utility of splintering in opener's first bid suit may be limited, but it is not out of the question. As ...
The cue bid as a limit raise
If the support double is available, then the cue bid denies 3 card support. Hands with 4+ card support have other bids available to show those holdings. So, the cue bid denies heart support.
Team League Structure in ACBL
As I mentioned earlier, we used to have a team competition in the Philadelphia area, but it died for lack of interest.
