Does multi go for more numbers?
I play multi 2 with a few partners on bbo, but all of them are non-N.Americans. I think that multi is excellent, as long as you have actually learned it completely, and not just "2 shows a weak 2 major". You do have to know the rest ...

West is not at fault, his hand is not an opening hand in any seat, and certainly not biddable later at the two or three level.
Pass, Pass, Pass, ?

"Playing Up" - An open letter to Jay Whipple
I don't see why this should be limited to juniors. I believe ANYONE should be able to play up, if they wish to play against the strongest opponents.
Asking a question as declarer behind screens
Is there any reason why you can't ask each of them -- separately in writing?
He may have forgotten
I would call the director, take him/her away from the table and reserve the right to redress should I assume and bid as though they have used their official agreement, and then it turns out to be wrong. I would explain both options and let the director guide me.
