comment Can one use alternate evaluation methods, e.g. “K&R” to defend actions that appear to violate your convention card?
I just looked at the example hand and I'm fine with opening one spade with it. To me, AKxxxx is worth at least AKQxx. And I think most people would open 1S with something like AKQxx Kxxx T xxx. Yes it's only 10 hcp but AK, side K is better quality than Axxx Kxx Qxx Jxx. And the sixth spade and singleton easily make up the difference to 13.

comment Have recent changes in bidding priorities changed the value of finesses?
My theory is that players who bid lighter games have fewer chances of squeezes,endplays, and combination plays but I could be wrong of course. To a large extent, that's what the question is about; do light bidders need to rely on finesses, and do finesses give them a good fallback position by "averaging up" results? Thanks for answering, though.

comment In bridge, what are the proper followups to a Jacoby transfer?
@tsuma534:That's good enough for me. This was one person's "experience." Admittedly, it's an unusual bidding convention but it worked for them.

@SevenSidedDie: I think the OP knows that his bidding system is, shall we say, "unconventional" but was wondering if it might be appropriate or at least acceptable in an informal "home" game with players that shared his mind set.
