Ever notice that people watch poker tournaments on TV? If want to revive interest in bridge start a big $$$ event following the poker format. Small entries at local clubs to win big entries to big events.

S Garton Churchill “Style” players have an easy time with this hand. South passed West opened 2H North bids 3S showing 9 tricks in his own hand and forcing for one round, South bids 4H (first round control) North bids 6C (a picture bid showing a suit with 2 of the top 3 honors) South raps it up with 7S piece of cake. As Edgar Kaplan said “it is undeniable that over the years many partnerships using Churchill's methods have been outstanding at slam bidding”

5N was called “Josephine” named after Jo Culbertson it asked partner to bid 7 in an agreed suit if you have 2 of the top 3 honors in that suit.

In what galaxy is a new suit by an unpassed responder not forcing?

Seems to me that your system creates problems than it solves.

This problem was solved in the 1930s it's called a picture bid. 3D game force showing a solid suit. Partner should cue bid a first round control

This subject has been around for 50+ years. I believe it was Dorothy Hayden-Truscott who gave the best answers. We are all different physically and mentally and that's the way it is. If you want to read about sex and bridge read “Husbands and other men I've played with” by Pat Scheinwold.

I'd be willing to bet that if you keep track of your results after this situation occurs about ten times that you will be negative at IMPs and below average at match points.

Perhaps you are not old enough to know that this is precisely why Drury created his convention. Murray psyched so often that he needed to put on the brakes. Using any method to discover partner's psych is illegal.

ACBL general convention chart clearly prohibits any convention used to expose a psyche. It is legal to psyche, it is not legal to use conventional methods to field a psyche.

The word “extraneous” means not pertinant to the matter at hand. Misuse of the language creates confusion.

I must be playing different team games. The ones I play in are about getting plus scores. Increasing the size of the set is asking for trouble when your partners come to compare and say we were in game or slam going down.

If playing a top seed slam may be your best shot at beating them is they are inexperienced be glad you did not bid it.
