BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
Well, the wholly inadequate acbl CC at least has something: "...except when suit reid." Presumably, other non GF auctions beginning with 2C should be somehow flagged if so playing. Would it help if 2C required an alert if not GF or vice-versa?

??? My most recent comment was to an earlier comment from a reader: "On the other hand, you are definitely permitted to see an opponent's hand after the play of the hand is completed. I can't imagine where you read that your opponent may decline to show you his ...

John: Circa 1990, I was enjoying my usual unhealthy breakfast at an Orange County CA "Bob's Big Boy" prior to a late morning game. My reading material was a copy of Hardy's "yellow book" boldly titled: TWO OVER ONE GAME FORCE My young female server stopped by to ...

GR: I didn't say I expected the Encyclos to be currently correct -- which I why I indirectly specified the dates.

Steve, admirable. But sometimes circumstances matter, it may not be a matter of delay of the game or a postmortem.
Your Legal/Etiquette View
Ed R. (and CM.) I see why you believe CM is technically correct. To think otherwise is because 7B is a separate item preceding 7C. I wonder if the law makers have inadvertently erred in expressing what they didn't mean to express. If not, perhaps they should repeat themselves!

Kit, in due course, I'll look up this inane "directive" from an ACBL publication. For now, trust me on the quotes from the Encyclos.
BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
Ian, quite true. It came about in ACBLand as a simple, off-hand, provincial way to differentiate game-forcing from invitational+ bids in N.A. based systems. It goes with the territory -- like it or leave it :)
BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
Technically correct I'm sure (of course, I haven't tried to count all 25) -- but, in context of a one-of-a-suit bid and two of a lower suit bid -- the generic meaning of 2/1 -- there are only 6 or possibly 5.
