Thinking early in the play in various jurisdictions - and potential UI
I don't like this procedure. At trick one, think before you play. Subsequently, if you're genuinely not thinking about the current trick, play your card face up, and keep it face up at the end of the trick while you think.

What are the stakes when Bob partners Jane?
Legal, Illegal, Alert Needed or announce
Certainly. Suppose that you play 5-card majors and strong NT. Then your minimum lengths for a (non-psychic) suit opening might be 5533. You would open a 3-card minor only with 4432, 4423, 4333, or 3433. And you would have some agreement about which to open with 4333 or 3433, which ...
