Let $k$ be a field. Let's say that $k$ has property $(∗)$ iff for a scheme $X$ and morphisms $f_1,f_2:X\rightarrow \mathrm{Spec}\,k$, geometric irreducibility of $f_2$ is implied by geometric irreducibility of $f_1$. Does there exist a non-pseudo-algebraically closed field with property $(∗)$?

    $\begingroup$ As written, your question is unclear; are you asking whether this is true for any $X, f_1, f_2$, or whether there are two families $f_1, f_2$ depending on $X$ so that this is true, or something else? $\endgroup$ – user44191 Mar 13 at 10:12
  • $\begingroup$ @user44191 I thought that this was perfectly clear. In case it was not, the question is for any $X$, any $f_1$, any $f_2$ $\endgroup$ – rori Mar 13 at 10:41

There is a way for the administrators to merge your accounts if you ask them. $\endgroup$ – Jason Starr Mar 13 at 14:03
