It is so-called "pretty standard" that if a partnership
has an explicit understanding that 1C - (Pass) - 1H
- (1S) - X = Support Double, then that partnership
so-called "must" have an implicit understanding
that 1C - (Pass) - 1H - (X) - XX = Support

But that ain't so. Pretty expert player Larry Cohen
has correctly observed that secondary implications
of conventions often have zero partnership

No, professional ACBL Directors professionally
use the same official and authorised interpretation
of the Laws on partnership understandings as
professional EBU Directors professionally follow,
no matter what a heterodox blmler may happen to
dogmatically believe.
