What is a "world class player"?
Let's just say that winning a World Championship is a sufficient but not necessary condition for world-classness. One of the delights of the game (and pointlessness of this thread) is the partnership aspect. That makes it difficult in any legitimate way to rate individuals. How many millions of us ...
What is a "world class player"?
According to BBO statistics, about 50 thousand.
Not to mention East, who should have doubled 2 to show opening strength.
Ruling please
Well, fair enough, Michael. If one believes that declarer's claim should be accepted, or denied, for every class of player in the world, then one may legitimately respond to the poll. Still, it seems to me that wilfully ignoring the 'class of player' clause is tantamount to saying: "The ...

Many choices, many levels
Kieran is channeling Terence Reese here. It's one of those powerful pieces of logic that make anything other than pass absurd.
What is 4NT
Definitely a pet of Edgar's. I note that if you do have both minors, and don't have a 4NT UNT available, then you are right royally ... Whereas if you have the huge balanced hand, you can double and at least hope to survive thereafter.
