Precision 1!C opener’s 1N Rebid - What’s Legal
acbl alert chart not alertable Natural 1NT or 2NT rebids that may or may not bypass four-card major(s) alertable openers 1NT rebid if strong. (edit: which does technically applies to precision as strong even if natural) so not explicit about non-natural but the chart has lots of holes Part ...
Precision 1!C opener’s 1N Rebid - What’s Legal
There is nothing in ACBL regulations putting a restriction on 1NT rebids. So I do see where there is a debate. Even playing Standard America it is common to rebid 1NT on an unbalanced hand.

New ACBL Convention Charts - general club impact
For basic+ 2 has to be very strong to be artificial under GCC it only had to be strong 15+. Your allowed strong 3-suiters for other reasons. But strong artificial bids that don't meet very strong are out. "Any 2-level or higher opening bid that is Very Strong ...
Director question
How long would it have taken declarer to play A if nothing happens play K. This sort pf sloppy claim saves no time and causes delays and hard feelings.
