I don't get the idea of running zillion parallel events every day on regionals/sectionals. There should be at every tournament some ‘landmark’ team events with some concurrent pairs only for ‘less sophisticated types of experts’ as the HH once gracefully described the RR

It might be a bigger problem that the hesitation brings it to near certainty that bidding anything by E won't harvest -300

It's not a question of opinion but probability calculation

Richard, do you claim either of the two: i. when in doubt, alerting should be prohibited and penalized, ii. you are never in doubt as far as alerts go?

Your answer not only skips the most substantial part of my argument but also resorts to a personal remark

I suggest that asking Tony Forrester about his plan after X may be useful to many

John, personally I trust you'd alway reopen with this hand. You may even write in on your CC. So what? Partner informed you that doing something is 100% right. Say, you've got 15HCP same shape with AJ/AQ. Now we are in perfectly gray area. Partner tanks - reopening is right. Partner passes in tempo - reopening is most likely wrong, and in this case you always have an excuse - I had too much in their suit to reopen. Your various solemn declarations have to be adjusted by self serving purposes.

2 = stiff asking with fit, 2N = hands without fit and second suit to bid. Both either 1RF or GF, up to you

Requiring games to be Toucan proof is not a bidding philosophy generally supported by experts. Your probabilistic grounds are also quite shaky since there are quite a few other weak holdings that make the game playable

Since it's impossible to find out if partner has ‘perfect’ 4HCP, W has to ‘overvalue’ this hand just in case a game makes

I guess with xx,Qxx,AJxx,Kxxx W would bid positive 3/

I'm not so sure about it given the level of intervention. With K instead of x, is it still 4?

I don't think any carding agreements should influence N's play. Overruffing from N position is just a bad play since no extra tricks may be gained
