What is an Expert in EBUland?
I dont think being an expert is the same as being a top player. Being an expert starts a fair bit lower. I was an expert chess player but would lose 1000 to nil to any of the worlds top 500 (even 1000) players.
Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: J53 2 AKQ42 AKT8
I play 3C as NF.
Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: J53 2 AKQ42 AKT8
Depends on agreements. I play 3M as short here so 3H a standout for me.
Hesitation Blackwood
I play 5M as a weaker trump queen ask, possible courtesy for grand when the other hand must have the higher number. So slow or not there is no reason for my partner to pass a forcing bid. When I bid rkcb I can make a slam facing 3+ key ...
Hesitation Blackwood
In the system file is enough.

I play rkcb slam forcing facing higher number so no ui issues for my partnerships.
Can we save our game?
Agree. It's thriving in london at any rate and many aspects of the game just with all sports/games have vastly improved over the years.
Can we save our game?
I dont mind investing a possible 800 (at worst) against their vul game if it might cause them to go wrong.
Can we save our game?
My point is that by your logic since asking shows values, not asking ergo denies them. Hence always ask, or ask randomly is best. Otherwise a failiure to ask is unethical too.
Can we save our game?
If asking a question shows values then by the same argument not asking shows weakness (and by your logic would mean partner of the non-asker MUST bid on a marginal hand). When a bid is alerted-just ask what it means whatever your hand and avoid this problem.
