Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
Don't think I've ever had a 10 card suit in live play ever. I've held an 8-5-0-0 twice. That's as extreme as I've had. One or two 9 baggers but not with double voids.
minorwood - what are your rules if 4m is minorwood?
Well, it's a bid lower, so you can bale out in 4N on more auctions.
How to deal with a problem at the local club
EHAA is the absolute best for tilting people like this. The idea that one could open 2[sp] on 65432 Kxxx Qxx x will just deeply offend them. Let's not even mention the 10-12 NT or 4 card majors. The best part is: It's ALL natural, really natural ...

I strongly disagree, I think BOTH hands are limited - responder via not making a positive response (assuming 2[cl]-2NT would have been something like 8-11 balanced or something like that), and opener by bidding 3N, which is non-forcing.
After Their Nebulous 1!D...
My preference is that over a 2+ 1[di], treat it as natural (e.g. direct 2[di] is majors), over a 0+ or 1+ 1[di] treat it as artifical, so, 1[di]-(2[di]) is diamonds. On the example sequence given I'd treat it as offer to ...

I expect to gain a lot more from being in 3N instead of a 5m than from missing the occasional slam. But then - this is part of why I think 2D waiting is bad. I much prefer 2[di] promises an A or K... often makes these decisions much easier ...

I'm a simpleton. It's RKC. For me on this auction removing 3N is practically a slam force, especially at matchpoints.

Simplest is rarely best.

What I would be ok with is the *partnership* death penalty. Any time both partners conspire (either both actually cheating, or one cheating at the other knowing and staying silent) bar them from playing a pair forever.

So, should any novice who took advantage of partner's alert be banned for life? In general I have zero tolerance for zero tolerance. The real world is shades of gray, not black and white.
