Hi,

It would be nice if you could see a bid explanation for a pass. Sometimes you want to know whether a pass is forcing or not, and/or you'd like to know what a pass specifically denies. For example: in a support double situation: does a pass explitely deny a 3-card support, etc.

Just a suggestion. Thanks!

I think you can click on Pass to ask the opponent to explain it, just like clicking on any other bid.

I suspect they might be referring to passes with GIB. While you can hover over your own passes, you don't know what others mean (and the descriptions of your own often don't say much). But that's probably more to do with pass being a catch-all that can't be described in most situations.
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

Right. There are some situations where pass has a specific meaning, and then there will be an explanation. Most of the time, though, it's just "nothing more to say". I don't think GIB has any explicit "forcing pass" agreements.
