Thanks Michal, I certainly won't bid 2 in this situation again.
Though 2NT with a void in an unbid suit didn't occur to me….

My favorite unopposed auction was 1 - 1NT - 2 - 2 - 2 all pass. The robot held something like 10xx, Ax, Jxx, QJxxx. Down 1 when 3NT was cold vs. expected robot defense (my hand AKx, Qxxxx, AKQxx, void). No matter how badly the robots are programmed it's hard to believe they would pass this auction

Playing 8-10 1NT response over our natural 1 opening I've always alerted 1

In the continuum from great constructive raise to crappy limit raise this is somewhere in the middle

I'm assuming the poll has E X 3? Otherwise bidding 3NT is really out there (insane?)…. My answer changes with the X being included. Since N/S were the ones who caused the problem, I don't know that E's initial response is particularly relevant. The failure to alert didn't give E a chance to think about his bid at the table.

ACBL affinity cards: Gold card gets you 1 gold point for every $100 you spend, platinum card gets you 1 platinum point. 1000 platinum points is automatic grand life master, 10000 automatic HOF.

I like 2NT as the GF slam try, with 3 being something else such as 6 solid with an outside A or whatever you agree on.

I'll send you my notes if you like, precision with 4 card majors, 10-12 NT, 10-15 canape major to minor, usual nebulous 1. PM your email.
We use highly modified Gazelli to sort out 5-5 from 4-5 patterns.

Karen and I were married way before the internet. I called the local tournament coordinator to check for weekends that didn't conflict with a local tournament.

You wonder why people are talking about GF (game forcing) food.

Me too, David, so take away jacks until you wouldn't. Not sure the new ACBL will allow that as a 1 opening however (kinda joking, or am I?)

I agree that this should show a 4-6 max or 4-7 player. Jim, would you really pass 3 holding KQJ10, AKJxxxx, void, xx?
The field played hearts because in most systems 2/3 is the normal bid over a forcing NT. BTW, I have played forcing club for decades.
In matchpoints I must confess I would bid a simple 2 over partner's forcing NT with the hand you held (I would not criticize your bidding sequence playing IMPs, I would certainly consider it, but don't think I would choose it.)

Possible? Is that a euphemism for absolute certainty?

Of the many committees I've sat on I would say that 1NT - X - bid has been the second most common (hesitations, of course, being #1 by a factor of many)

normally 18. But I have rebid 1NT with something like A, 1098, Qxx, AKQJ10x

IMHO not bidding 2 says you are so terrified of your partner's crappy opening bids that you need an extra A to force to game
