Rich Newell's bidding problem: AQJ 53 Q5 AT8753
"Some kind of 3 heart raise" is insufficient information. How is it different from 3?
Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
I didn't understand that this was a UI problem. If I think partner has misconstrued my bid as forcing, pass becomes 100%.
Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
So this opponent is going to come in over 3 but pass over 2?
Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
If this is a game try asking "how good is your 2 bid", your 2 bid is flat minimum. If he wanted to force, he could bid -- well, anything but 2 or 3. With my luck, if I bid game, my unknown partner would intend 3 ...

To Show or Not To Show?
If someone is going to have a learning experience from instant feedback, that only aggravates the time factor. This means -- or SHOULD mean -- that the director adds at least two or three minutes per round. If someone is going to give players a "show/no show" ballot, the "show" option ...
To Show or Not To Show?
I don't think anybody has discussed the last "CON" much, and to me, it's the most important aspect: People will change their game depending on how they think they are doing. Is it fair to the other players to have a pair playing normally for 3/4 of ...
To Show or Not To Show?
Just get the people who previously played it to fix it.
