@hkBst: You're reading my answer correctly. From what I understand, the "law" was established a long time (over 100 years) ago. So it may or may not be supported by recent results or tournament play.

I have removed the "opinion based" part of the question and suggest that it NOT be closed. What's left can be answered by reference to the chess literature.

comment Do most good pre-empters do so within “tight” point ranges?
With regard to Pieter's comment, given 6 of 13 cards in a suit, you also want your pro rata share (or better) of high cards, say KJT (4.5 out of 10.5, counting the T as 0.5).

@PieterGeerkens: I amended the question to most "good" pre-empters in the title and "expert" pre=empters in the body. That rules out the weak ones. The last sentence also refers to "systems or experts."

comment What is the “En passant” rule in chess?
@Rainbolt: I added "by one side." If all eight of Black's pawns were on the fifth rank, none of White's would make it to the fourth. I'll grant you that Black could have four fifth rank captures, and then White could move four pawns to the fifth rank and make four captures of the remaining Black pawns.
