Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
That's my point. You can do 2/1 with single raise as NF, jump raise as limit. Inverted minors is independent of 2/1. In fact when Larry Cohen teaches 2/1 to beginners, he doesn't include inverted minors, just have same simple raise for both 1m and ...
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
You can definitely play 2/1 system without using inverted minors. There is really no difference between SAYC and 2/1 after minor suit opening (or NT opening), except 1D-2C, but that being game forcing or not doesn't have impact on whether one can simple raise 1m. The main ...

Nice structure. Thank you.
4NT After a Negative Double Over a 3S Preempt

Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
Actually, if you have same pause on every trick, you will not be accused of deliberate deception. You may get slow play penalty however, but that is a separate issue.
Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
Not necessarily. For common situations which I expect an alert (e.g. new minor forcing), I sometimes just take a look at their convention card regardless of whether it affects my bid or not, just to confirm it is what I expected. The main point is, we want to minimize ...
Law 16, alerts, and ethical considerations
In theory, consistently asking about every alert is best, for the purpose of not giving any UI to partner. In practice, this will probably cause unnecessary delay to the game. I think it is more practical to ask only if the meaning of alerted bid would affect your action. For ...
