comment When might a Standard American bidder “bend” the five card major rule?
Definitely with you on the overcalling front. One concern in competitive play is that unless you are alerting your bids as 4-card majors, it may be considered unethical to repeatedly open 4 card majors without disclosing that it's something you do.

comment Would this potential Saint Petersburg house rule work?
Pat, wow. I haven't had a chance to play, but not for lack of effort or desire. There's a presumption that people who would try it out would, well, want to try it out! The implication of your statement is that I should withhold the idea until I've tried it, because I am somehow doing damage by presenting it untested. If you are someone who doesn't like testing house rules, then obviously that addendum is not for you.
