How many Diamonds does opener guarantee?
A succinct way of summarizing my various points regarding which minor to open.

Steve, Thanks for the comment which made me understand why you and others are confused. Please see my new comment which I just added below.

I apologize for the confusion. I saw that there was confusion, but didn't understand why until it suddenly hit me. The Y and Y answers were not intended to be choices available, but rather my answers to the question. The actual choices are 4 (my preference) or 5 (the ...

Inverted minors by passed hand
I think the expert approach is that inverted minors are off in competition. I wasn't so sure about by passed hand which is why I created this poll. Your comment about expert approach made me go to my library and see what the ACBL Encyclopedia of Bridge says. They ...
Inverted minors by passed hand
I have no problem with criss-cross (3C as invitational D raise) and even play it with some of my non-Precision partners. But I have some 2/1 partners who disagree about what a passed hand minor suit raise means, hence the poll. Thanks!
