thanks Kate

looked up knr and think that it may be superior but it doesn't look like something that's very practical for the average player to use other than as a reference post match

KnR=5.2? don't know this. I will respond with an Ace and most 5s. Lucky for all declarers to get away undoubled.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
sure, I'll do the first one #17
Brd 22 5 July Bermuda Bowl 2007 Norway V Netherlands
Well done to you both :)
Which is weaker?
Good question Sue. I hear a lot of discussion about X saying "partner, I'm trying to stop you bidding 5". Kate, your explanation of PIWA makes more sense to me but it raises another. If you X for blood and partner pulls, I would think this is an invitation?
WHAT IS THIS DOUBLE?
yes, systemically this would be so for us. In the presence of so much bidding, I think penalty should be a possibility. If South passes 3D, is reopening X mandatory from North? Does 3H from South suggest enough to play there so that North can re-evaluate their hand for game ...

Thank you Kate. I like "When pass is one of your options, DON'T PASS". You hit the nail on the head with it as I've been letting the oppos get away with murder way too often... look out world! :)

Well done Liz and Ruth. Thanks Andy, all good advice.

Thanks Lori, these are great rules. I think that I should have doubled regardless on this hand but it would have made it much easier for me with this rule.
