Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
The big advantage of it is that it is not ubiquitous - do you really mean that or do you mean universal? - which means that when someone plays Puppet or 5-card Stayman as we do, we alert. In the ACBL we should not do anything and when players assume 1N - 2C ...
David Stevenson's bidding problem: AQJ3 Q3 KT62 QJ8
Thanks for the answers. The basic problem here is that 3N was cold but only played from this hand. Partner held 9xx Ax A9xxx Axx If you pass you may reach it since partner may decide to bid again. If he doubles perhaps you can bid 3N presuming partner will ...

What's a "Comparable Call"?
It is unfortunate that people confuse the terms ‘call’ and ‘bid’ just as people confuse ‘evidence’ and ‘proof’ and many other well defined terms. A bid is a number of tricks followed by a denomination so pass is not a bid, as Jim says.
Bid spades or double?
I think both pairs I know of who had difficulties on this sequence had methods to show 4s and a game force over 2N.

Is it alertable? It depends on the jurisdiction, ie where it is. I see some responses have assumed ACBL but not everyone on BW is in the ACBL. It is certainly alertable throughout the British Isles and in the ACBL.

If you are going to change the law completely there are better solutions.
