Forcing or non-forcing?
I imagine 2 is new-minor-forcing (or 3rd suit forcing)
Best way to handle this situation?
Playing 2-way NMF, is 2 (by a passed hand) natural? e.g. P-1/1-1NT/2?
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
Unless you play 1-2NT as natural with 11/12?
More Legal Eagles (push poll)
Partner's failure to alert is UI to you. I do not see any AI here. In deciding your bid, you should assume that Partner alerted your 3 transfer and you should now bid accordingly over 5.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: Q73 4 A5 AQJT654
Given that 2 was not GF, it seems reasonable to assume that 4 is non-forcing. On that basis, 4 seems like an underbid.
Revoke
Director's ruling was based on "us" winning the revoked trick. He did not see a difference between me (the offender) winning the trick and my partner winning the revoke trick.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AKQT92 --- 7432 T54
The majority got this right by bidding 4. I did not :( Partner held 76543 42 AQ KQ96 I polled partners hand and 55% voted for pass https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-07nyr3nfrb/ 6 was cold at the table (west held K and A)
Pass Out of Rotation
The converse is also true. I open 1 out of turn. The bidding reverts to RHO who opens 1. I am allowed to overcall 1. Partner now knows that I have a full strenght opening bid for my 1 overcall.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: K5 T 43 AKQ86543
which is why I followed up with 3 :)
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: QJTxx x xx AKTxx
I would have bid 3 last time, instead of X
