Does Anybody Play This Any More
If responder was willing to bid 5 over 5, a better choice of action would have been a direct 5 bid.
A Deal of Interest

Official Version of New Convention Charts
Thank you. So at what point does the 3rd seat opening become a pysch? Since there is no clear defined 3rd seat bid, could I open a yarborough and it not be considered a psych?

Michael Seamon Junior USBC (Part 3)
A simple raise to 4 should surely suffice. North is almost always marked with heart shortness, and the Q98x can definitely present some finessable positions. Given that however, the three low diamonds are definitely a problem, but I don't think a direct raise to 5 is ...
Michael Seamon Junior USBC (Part 2)
5 may have been intended as exclusion, and through that, the 2 missing aces can easily be found. In a vacuum, NS should not be in slam. 4NT in this context should just be "I can take 10 tricks, and my vulnerable game is worth than I expect to ...
