Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Apparently it was written on the system card, so it seems to have moved past your interim period.
A Developoment of 4th suit GF after 1x-1y
There were some discussions about this on here a couple of years back, where I mentioned a convention that I learnt as "Fifth Suit Forcing" (and found out that Americans use that name for something completely different). In any event, in the context of this auction, it works exceptionally well ...
Responder Shows responses to strong 2!C - symmetric style
That's the traditional weakness of pure relay systems - the person being interrogated has very limited options available to use judgement and convey texture. Having said that, after a 2 opening, the limited space means that standard response structures can struggle with that kind of thing as well.
How do you handle the bad breaks?
I think on Page 6 you need to replace the 10 with a small spade.
Settle A Bet
It's not a limit raise for me, because we open flat 11 counts and we have a "good" raise to 2H available. I feel that your opening style indicates what you should call this.
A bad start
One thing is clear to me: I would never judge a person for taking either action. Call me a legal realist, but perhaps it depends on what I had for breakfast as to what I would do. I think I'd wait a couple of extra seconds to see if ...
ATB - first time partner
I think I'd try 4NT, ostensibly takeout for the minors. When I then convert to 5S, I'm hoping that will be read as a slam try.
T-Walsh Continuation after a One NT Rebid
I have played a variant of Leong Transfers for years and it works really well.
A Third Bidding Approach
Unfortunately I was too young to play against it. The fact that I am the same age as Keiran probably says something about our relative abilities.
2H as weak both majors (2 good examples!)
I really play the double as "penalty interest of hearts". After that, I think either "next double by either hand is takeout" or "next double by either hand is penalties" are sensible ways to continue.
