There has been some debate on the 'Strong' 2 thread about how to regulate such hands. Many have said that 'judgment' would be better than HCP+whatever. The problem is "whose judgement?" 

This is a true story.

2 was 'Benji', 2 a positive response showing a good hand with 5 decent spades.

4NT was RKCB for hearts, 5 was 3/0.

South was a Venice Cup winner, North was a client.

I was on lead to 7NT holding AK and A; my partner had K

North was adamant that Qxxxxxxx QJxxx  qualified as 8 playing tricks...

 

OK, so this time they shot themselves in the foot (and mouth); but next time the 2 opening might keep the opps out of a making slam.

 

Where do YOU draw the line?
