ATB - missed slam
(1) 3 shows 3 card heart suit, S hand is unlimited (2) No, he could have 4 spades. 3 was intended as a cue bid. Bypassing 3 would deny a spade control. N has neither shown nor denied a 4 card spade suit. (3) S could have ...
ATB - missed game
Bidding Spades then Diamonds systematically showed 5 spades, with 4=4=4=1 South would have opened 1. With a balanced hand South would have either opened NT or rebid NT unless 8 card fit hand been found. Systematically 2 shows either 2 or 3 Spades.
ATB - missed slam
2C is 10+ with a 4 card club suit. 3S is an cue bid, hearts are agreed 4C/4D would be further cue bids Souths immediate responses showing 4 card fit are 2S,2N,3C and 3D. 2N show no singleton or void, other show shortage in suit.
Poll taken, what next?
'"South asks about 4♦ without any intention to bid, which is UI for North. " What, exactly, is the information here that is unauthorized?' Unless South asks about EVERY bid that is not alerted he is showing that in some way this one is special. If he bids he shows a ...
Poll taken, what next?
South should not ask because asking creates UI. South is showing interest, almost certainly some values. North uses the UI when doubling 5. As West has not alerted 4 so the meaning of 4 is clear East want to play in 4. Does anyone play a ...

Alertable or not?
Thank you Steve, Jay, Dave and everyone else who has tried to improve my understanding of the ACBL regulations. I have now found both the chart and the pamphlet and I think I now understand your arguments. The time has come for me to pipe down even though I am ...
Alertable or not?
The ACBL Alert Chart notes are interesting ________________________________________________________________ Natural Call 4. "Doubles and Redoubles are natural if, by agreement, partner is requested to pass" Treatment A natural call that, by partnership agreement, carries a specific message about the suit bid or the general strength of the hand. Such bids are ...
Alertable or not?
Which brings us back to the hand being discussed. Is North indicating a willingness to play 1HXX? If he is, why should the redouble be alertable? It is after all the basic meaning of the bid. If he is not, who is he expecting to pull the contract? Hearts are ...
Alertable or not?
In EBUland the standard system card asks for the range of the XX, in ACBLland it does not. I wonder if that is why some of us have no problem with 6+ while other do have a problem.
