Off the rails again
I am all for rules, Barry. Part of why I play a more simplistic system than some others. Easier to remember and not have mega disasters when you don't have 387+ pages in your notes :)
Off the rails again
Barry, if you had the diamond control, then why couldn't you simply keycard to find out about partner's trump holding? OR..... you could cue bid 5 yourself - no?
Off the rails again
And if responder had blasted, and opener had the same hand with one fewer heart and the Jx of diamonds - then we'd all be discussing how they should have stayed out of the hopeless slam!

About that demographic cliff...
Steve - I'm not sure what you mean. I personally think that the USBF does a superb job of helping to select our best representatives for international competition. I do not see why the effort and cost to do this is useless.
4-3-2-4
Steve - IF that is what it means! Is it that - or - "I don't have a heart stopper; do you?" :)
About that demographic cliff...
"Playing in the USBF?" Perhaps people should read their charter: The UNITED STATES BRIDGE FEDERATION was formed in 2001, for the primary purposes of selecting and supporting United States teams in International Competition and supporting the World Bridge Federation in its efforts to obtain Olympic recognition for bridge.
