What is a good grand slam?
An example of how people sometimes erroneously believe the other table must be in at least 6. You have a great hand, partner opens 1H and next person bids 2S. You think there is no way that anyone could stop short of slam with your hand. The auction at the ...
ACBL (poor) response on conflicting alert rules
When I learned support doubles I learned that all the negative inferences were alertable. A revision got rid of these alerts, about 10? yearts ago.

Some very good players bid 4C suggesting that it is forcing. This makes sense to me but I am not certain how rules would encompass that.
William Watson's bidding problem: A95 94 A9765 K98
Thanks to all who have answered. I am afraid that this was a director problem where 2D was not alerted, an aggressive double in the direct seat of 3D was made and this hand carried on to 3S, getting to 4S. All of 3N, 4S and 5D made opposite KQTx ...
