Strongly agree with everything you wrote.

How shocking, the countries where English is the dominant language come up with the best English names for the categories (the US names are very similar to the ones Andy lists above). I don't think the WBF officials were attempting to be offensive with their names, but it does ...
A Deal for All Your Sides
Debbie, you're correct, and I clarified it with Kevin today. I'll edit the article to reflect that.
What a play by Maksymilian Chodacki
Very nice. Reminiscent of Helgemo's finesse in this position: 97x AK6x low to the 7, then when East returned one from QJ10x he ran it to the 9. Good to be playing from the South. Might get a read on the spades when West plays a no-problem low spade ...

1 Diamond - 2 Clubs in 2/1

Would you roll this back?
(1) might be a useful question, but it's tainted by the fact that at this point South knows North thinks the double shows 5-7, so it's in his interest to agree with that, or at least hedge. (2) is certainly useful, but you should not tell the pollees ...
Would you roll this back?
Probably they are, but it would likely have a specialized meaning. My point is not that Grue-Moss would have this auction, but that an average player might not know what standard bidding theory is, particularly about Precision or other strong-club systems. My example meant to show that someone with "the ...
Would you roll this back?
Exactly, Max. If you poll (who I imagine to be, based on the information in this thread) South's peers and confront them with an undiscussed auction to 3NT, a significant number will pass because that's what they do when partner bids 3NT in undiscussed auctions. Far fewer of ...
