Phrase “semiforcing” exist. So non forcing should mean something more specific.

We can consider ourselves lucky then. My pd was either unfamiliar with that strictly rule or was brave enough to replace it with logical thinking. I did nothing. Just innocently bid 5s.

Nope, it was an IMP event for teams.

Lots above disagree with that rock proof captain role conception. They suggest that leap to seven hearts after the five spades bid and my Formidable Partner de facto did this way. It took him about 3,5 minutes to do so from what I got an UI about his extremely smart but remarkably low speed thinking.

You succesfully constracted a very unsuitable minimum hand. There was no way ti divide the heart queen to two jacks running out of jacks.
However even with the given hand five hearts woukd go down only a small fraction of time. PartlY because six will be bid and making it with an overtrick would be more probably then going down.

No he didnt because that 4hearts would have been a nonforcing invitational bid. His hand was far too strong for that. His bid definitely denied shortage, splintering would have offered his partner a hand evaluation still leaving the possibility to go forward even after a negative sign. This is possible after an artificial slam try but not possible a natural one (4h).
Btw if blackwooding is forbidden even grand slams are unable to reach with confidence if each player has two uncovered suits.

“If that true, then the case for allowing the 7♥ call is even stronger. I can't construct any hand where you wouldn't want to be in 7♥ except when responder has xxx in clubs, and he huddle doesn't give any indication about this.”
The argument of the AC was very close to that, almost word by word.

Well according to the here long time popular system transfer on the two level followed by a jump is a slam try or better auto splinter. Transfer and jump to four in the own major is a natural and nonforcing slam try, one suiter 6+ cards in length no shortness.

Advancer denied shortness.

I strongly agree. According to the rubber like rules (well I mean made of rubber) that I personaly hate so much plenty of cases can be decided one way or the opposite one without real violating the rules.

Not hiding myself also being the member of that AC let me ask something. At least temporary let us accept that the SLOW 6h was conveying some intention to play a grand. Now lets see the legal meaning:I was considering the grand but lacking that king of spades I am not douig it anymore. Reading that 6h this way isnt it completely logical to bid the grand?

What would be the hand for a non marginal 2nt bid here?

At certain horse races there are penalties of false steps. I guess it would be a wrong idea to adopt it to our beloved game tho.

Well the first two answers are not identical regarding to the length and strength and only length. I have to admit thet none of those talk about sequences and interior sequences.
I am getting sure that the name of this lead is very misleading/confusing quite similarly to the 3./5. Lots are saying they are playing the later but leading 3./lowest instead.

What about a fake cuebid? What about a fake trump queen ask after what we shall “stop” in small slam but probably escape of the dangerous trump lead?
Everything should be described as may or may not be otherwise prohibited to use it more than x times/year?

Yes IF you think that 5sp is bridge (not something else is) then best to bid it with or without UI and wait patiently the potentional but not necessary ruling.
If you changes your mind after the UI from “A” to “B” it is unethical regardless of the possible reasons of the delay.

I think noone was talking about cheating me surely not. I suggest to forget that 10 seconds story it was not 10 sec it was multiple 10 sec and I mentioned that the players agreed about the definite delay.
