6M-(3-2-2) & “Mild Slam Interest” over 1NT
(continuing) ... (and Yuan Shen's) comments about hand and fit assessment, but I think that these concerns can be taken into consideration somewhat, both by responder (in deciding whether to invoke Size Ask) and by opener (in judging whether to show max/min or to apply a more conservative or ...
6M-(3-2-2) & “Mild Slam Interest” over 1NT
The 75% figure may indeed be high and might have been suggested to me (as a non-expert) to give a little buffer. But that was mainly included in the post as a point of reference; partnerships are clearly entitled to pick their own poison regarding risks for slam exploration. I ...
6M-(3-2-2) & “Mild Slam Interest” over 1NT
Mary: As noted in the original post, the "75% rule" is not hard and fast. But committing to the 5-level is perhaps not as much of a problem as you suggest. In the simulations that I ran, the denominator of the SSR is overwhelmingly comprised of bid slams that failed ...

1NT – 3♥/♠: Splinters, Fragments, and Slam Exploration
Gil: In your methods, how does opener show ♥-fit and potential slam interest (minimal/no wasted ♠ values) after responder's splinter? Norman
1NT – 3♥/♠: Splinters, Fragments, and Slam Exploration
Helene: Please advise: what does GIB stand for?
1NT – 3♥/♠: Splinters, Fragments, and Slam Exploration
Helene: In your methods, after 1N-3♠ (1444), how does opener show interest in a possible ♥ slam when he has no wasted ♠ values (e.g., Ax(x-x), xxx(x)? Norman
