Forcing or Non Forcing
In "Tournament Acol" they use 2 as Bourke Relay here, an artificial game force. My partnership is using that currently in KS too.
How do we get to 6!C?
Paulo, it looks like the weaker 3 doesn't deny a stopper in your method. So would responder then need to follow this with a punt of 3 if still interested in 3N?
Defence to openings showing shortness
Ian, could you provide a list of your other opening bids, so we can see what the inferences of the 1 opening are. Thanks.
The Price of Information
If the best choice of opening lead would be affected by opponents' tendency to blast, this tendency would require partnership disclosure along the lines of: with 4M-3-3-3 use Stayman: [always/frequent/seldom/never] with 4M-4-3-2 use Stayman: [always/frequent/seldom/never] Even if you never discuss this area in terms ...

Kantar even mentions this (p. 20, 3rd para). This poll http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/when-is-specific-king-ask-allowed-after-rkb/ found 82 ...
Kings inquiry activation following RKCB and Dynamic meaning to Kings Inquiry
Ronald, if both partners have shown side suits, say 1-2; 2-2; 4NT, are both side K's in play and if so which has priority?
Rusty
You are correct. I didn't consider east's holding off to prevent rectifying the count.
