Just play bridge robot. Human South.



New suit at the three level by an unpassed responder should be forcing, no?

Not totally clear. Majority would probably think it's forcing, but the main exception to the 'new suit forcing' principle is often responder bidding spades then hearts at the lowest possible level.
Please let me know about any questions or interest or bug reports about GIB.

"
Totally clear where I come from; 100% forcing..."New suit at the three level by an unpassed responder". In what world other than GIB World would that not be forcing?

I think the bot had second thoughts about opening that 3 club preempt with a one bid and then decided to pass a forcing bid to keep out of trouble.

If it isn't forcing then 4 is a standout with that undisclosed 7 bagger.
