Would you call for the director?
The honors appeared to be working [b]after[/b] the 3 call presumably announced where some of the honors were. N did not know that when he bid 2 . As many have suggested, N may have upgraded his constructive raise based on your call. That does not ...
Would you call for the director?

Would you call for the director?
A constructive raise can be invitational if opener has the right kind of hand.
