I play reverses at the 2-level (e.g. 1 - 2 - 2) as not promising extras, but at the 3-level (e.g. 1 - 2 - 3) promising extras.

Sorry, should have been clearer about the second. 2 is FSF/XYZ-like in these auctions (invitational with spades or FG no clear direction) this makes 3 nat. FG.

This makes the first auction similar enough for me to comment, but not the second.

1) 4 FG
2) Not discussed, but 2 is nat and 2 is FSF so a bit more difficult to construct the relevant auction
