Should Michaels require an alert?
its very simple. Whenever, the opponents make a direct cuebid always ask. If you always ask, then there can't be unauthorized information between you and your partner. Cuebids are self-alerting bids. I'm consistent because I ask the meaning of most early alerts so I can follow the auction ...
1!s vs 2!s after Neg X
After 1Minor - (1heart) - double - (Pass) 2spades shows 11-14 with four spades and 1spade shows three spades It's as if the auction went 1minor - (1heart) - 1spade - (pass) - 2spades Same after 1club (1diamond) - double (Pass) 1major shows three 2major shows 11-14 with four. Bidding this way makes overcaller have to continue ...
Overcalling 1NT with a singleton
I'd overcall 1NT every time. There's a rule that says you can't open 1NT with nine HCP. There's no rule that says you can't overcall 1NT with a singleton nine. There is no way that partner could ever make a bid that would show knowledge ...
Appeal from Kansas City
Are you supposed to ask about every bid just to make sure that it's what you expect and not some artificial bid that wasn't alerted?

After double of 2nt, next double is penalty. If you bid a major you have the other major
How do we avoid this disaster?

How do we avoid this disaster?
South should return the six of clubs. Leading back original 4th best is not correct and is often unreadable. You should lead back an attitude card. If South had only four clubs, he would know that declarer also had four clubs and should lead back a highish club. When the ...
Defense against 1N-(2N)
assuming minors Double = penalties of 1or both minors or one 4-card major 3clubs = 4-4 or 4-5 in majors (use smolen over 3diamonds) 3diamonds = 5+-5+ in majors 3hearts = five spades 3spades = five hearts Texas
Who in ACBL land is in charge of "Alert Procedures" on the web page? There are two versions on when to alert Puppet Stayman This is on the alert chart no alert Next higher level of clubs asking for a four-card or longer major This is on alert procedures chapter ...
In my experience, when partner alerts that there has been a misbid, at least 80% of players try to take advantage of the alert either thru ignorance, small dishonesty, or very dishonest. Very few would go out of there way to hang themselves. If somehow you can persuade the mis-alerter ...
