My wording may have been faulty. I meant that if you open light and bid 2m over 1NT, now if partner bids 2NT you have to be 5-5 so that you can bid 3m which is a sign-off.
If you are not 55 you must pass 2NT which is not going to be a success on a 20-point misfit.

The partner of the 2NT bidder/doubler passes invariably.

2NT-er has only two options: pass or double for penalties. It is his partner who can double for take-out to suggest a 5-level contract.

You have to anticipate your rebidding problem when opening light facing a passed partner. If you don't pass his response but thereby giving him another chance, be prepared to be at least 5-5 so that you can bail out in your second suit if partner bids 2NT. If you have a one-suiter you'd better had opened a weak two.

Taken from BBO official site.

Of course I can see now that there are others as well, e.g. Kit, Timo, Al Hollander, Phil Clayton. I'm at the Meck table.

Steve,

The commentators are almost always worse players than those being commentated. That is so in all sports and games. Maybe if you refrained from the finals…

My late mother-in-law always tried to take offence whenever the opportunity lent itself. Now I can see it was not an individual trait.

In theory yes but where are the opps with their 11 clubs and 20+ HCP's?

I am sure it was intended to be humorous although it did not succeed at that.

A case can be made for an immediate 4 over 2. I for one would have probably chosen that route to overbidding.

Natural, an ace belatedly discovered. No other hand qualifies.

No agreement - of course. I have played with a couple of partners agreeing to 4th suit forcing to game. When I suggested continuations they said I was too meticulous.

Have the 28 non-invited Russian athletes filed a suit?

In my experience, invitational jumps do not exist by a passed hand because those hands would have already been opened on the 1 or 3 level.

I still cannot imagine a hand which is a 3NT rebid but did not qualify for an 1NT opening.
Does it show 6M?

I would ask EW what double of 3 would have have meant for them.
If it encouraged a diamond lead then the hesitation conveyed nothing new to East: West might have doubled with A109x.

Shall I also share my experience level?

What I say in these circumstances is: ‘No agreement but I have an idea.’

After I said ‘no agreement’, are the opponents entitled to ask me about what my guess is?
