Super-accepting after 1NT opener
1N - 2R: 2M+1 (same as 2R+2) : Max, 4-card support, either a trick source in oM or no trick source 3M: Min. 4-card support Else: Max. 4-card support, trick source here Retransfers for all of the above 3M-1: does not exist so we can always retransfer 1N - 2 ...
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: 8 96 QJ762 AQT63
Thanks all. This was actually a UI situation, as I thought, PASS is not a clear LA!
GF relays in Transfer Walsh
1) Never played a relay here but after 1 - 1 - 2, 2M is GF semi-natural (and FG hands having gone through 1 are similar to Frances's above) 1 - 1, 2 plus are all artificial 2) 1 - 1R - 1M has a variety ...

Bidding systems without forcing opening bid
We play a system where no opening bid is forcing, I guess you'd define them as semi-forcing. Yet to have a major problem. There is a fair amount of kit to stop us getting too high. 2-2 are pre-emptive, 2N: 21-23 bal. 3N: Good 4M opening.
Responder's rebids after 2N and a red suit transfer
Depends. If 2N - 3R - 3M shows a fit (and therefore 3R was FG), I play new suit as a shortage. If 2N - 3R - 3M is practically forced, then Frances's suggestion
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: A9xxxx Ax AQTxx ---
Maybe the blurb is not clear enough. You have not agreed explicitly this is a FP auction (3rd time this partnership has played), but you're pretty sure partner knows it should be.
