Opening 1 NT point range on convention card
Yes. See below.
Opening 1 NT point range on convention card
If we pass 99% of 11-counts and open 1% including that one, does saying "11+" disclose or obfuscate? (99.78% / .22%, according to Craig Biddle just above me.) I didn't keep the hand records from Saturday, but on that same day (maybe even the same session) I passed something ...
[ACBL] Open Chart Allows These Bids?
I think you are reading the regulation much too narrowly. My interpretation, which I think is the common-sense one, is: "Disallowed if the only known suit in which length is shown is not the suit bid." So for your first example, the fact that there is length shown in an ...
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K42 T754 Q542 74
Probably all the people who have voted won't see this, but: how on earth can you pass? West passed her partner's 3 bid. She didn't think she could make a game. Now when partner is showing [i]more[/i] strength, you think West's first judgment ...

Can you play in a different suit after a Texas transfer??
Instead of trying to mastermind the bidding so that [i]you[/i] find out about the cards, have you considered, y'know, showing your hand? After 2NT-3D; 3H-4D and then a continuation to the 5-level, partner might get the idea that red suit top honors are useful.
A Modest Proposal
Great bridge bragging name, and a direct reference to Mollo's Hideous Hog.
Harry Polunsky?
I'm acquainted with a fellow who lives in Houston named Richard Polunsky. Might well be a relative. I've sent him an email about your inquiry, so perhaps he'll answer.
