Technical question: is this 3!h bid forcing
Playing 15-17 NT, are you content to open 1NT on xx KQJxx Axx AJx? If not, you might want to be able to rebid 2 here invitational.
Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids
Under online alerting regulations, a player is entitled to an alert on the basis of what his opponent understood his call to mean at the time he made it, even if that understanding was wrong. East has committed an infraction by not alerting his double of 1NT - at the time ...

TD please
