Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: KJ74 AK763 K42 5
In my view, the totality of the auction creates the forcing pass because advancer forced to game on power and you were not sacrificing over their own game. Following my forcing pass, overcaller will double, and we'll get what we get. If the result is unsatisfactory, then perhaps the ...

@Richard, the conversation inevitably goes south when one individual's pet treatment is taken as standard bidding...
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: KJ74 AK763 K42 5
Assuming that 4 shows a GF hand in support of spades with club shortness, I take a double here to express a negative view towards our prospects in 5. Since I am optimistic of those prospects, I will pass, which I consider forcing. In other words, my splinter ...
Followups after shape resolution
That's David Morgan's view on "The Balanced Hand Principle," which was that wherever feasible, the balanced hand should ask and the potentially unbalanced hand should tell. In his view, that is what makes Jacoby transfers superior to, say, 2-way Stayman.
Normand Houle's bidding problem: A T865432 754 AT
I'm passing although by system I would not be in this position, because one of my metarules is that advances in competition as a passed hand are fit showing, not poor + long suit showing, so I'd have been forced to pass 3.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: AQ2 AK8543 --- AT97
Without knowing system specifics (e.g., does this partnership have a short suit game try sequence available), it is difficult to know what is best. If I can show diamond shortness (3) and follow that up with a slam try, that would be my preference. Assuming that is not ...
Followups after shape resolution
When I played methods like these I almost always wanted an end signal (the Power-System 4 call, e.g.) that would beget a one-step response and the end-signaller's next bid would be to play. In that context, then, bids other than the end-signal were trump setting by length ...
Is this forcing?
I've been following BWS since its incarnation in 1968, and the insinuation that the BWS style, as correctly described by RichardF, is a consequence of its adoption of Reverse Fallnery by Responder is simply untrue from an historical perspective.
Is this forcing?
I play 1.3 as forcing, therefore 1.2.3 is invitational. If I were to play 1.3 as a splinter raise of clubs, then I would treat 1.2.3 as a forcing bid that could include 5 ...
Practice with "Relay Doubles"--our new toy
If my memory is correct, Jeff Rubens authored quite a good piece on the two basic competitive bidding philosophies, which were (1) to separate strength (good/bad 2nt versus an immediate bid at the 3-level) and (2) to indicate shape (rubensohl-like transfers starting with 2nt), and I believe Rubens came ...
