Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)

4SF question
Agree with one above; in my youth, I did this often with Axx and found partner with Qx, so "other". One available answer, Alan, was "denies the ability to make a more descriptive call", and in all forthrightness, that box should be checked for every bid we ever make! :)
