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?

Natural, invitational, the same as 4 would be. With a GF you bid 3 first then support whichever minor you have fit in.
If you played 4 as forcing, you'd have to give up the invitation for no good reason.

Of course you are right. I was assuming natural continuations.

I hate to repeat this again but my answer is dependent upon the definition of previous rounds. If some previous bid has limited my strength, my 3NT would be to play. If not, my 3NT would be unserious.

Mollo and Reese are entertaining and instructive at the same time. None of the rest qualifies.

We are not going to stop below game after announcing a combined minimum of 24 HCP's.
To play 3 as a sign-off is a waste. What are you going to bid with the 7-11 point diamond hands?

With one partner I play both 2NT and 3 as invitational, non-forcing. Not that it is necessary, just for the sake of simplicity. With a sophisticated structure you can handle all hands from invitational up with 2.
