LTC is useful AFTER at fit is found. The process I go through

1) Note the shape of the hand
2) Count the HCP
3) Look at the distribution (not the same as shape)
4) Look at vulnerability and position
5) Take in to account the opponents
6) At last I am ready to misbid my hand

The hand Eric has posted at the top of this thread looks like a 3 bid to me. The hand in my post is too strong. If I didn't have anything else available I would just bid 4 in the other problem. However my partner found a clearly invitational call.

Well on the similar hand that posted I thought 3 was a clear underbid. In that one I thought advancer needed to make an invitation.

So for the people bidding 3, what does it mean?

Nor would I. Assuming I just now noticed the 7 was really the 7, I would pass.

You are correct, the hand was extremely easy to play. All the cards could be placed after opening lead.

Penalty too hard to spell. Kapuhletme much easier.

You're worried about bidding 2 and Phillip Martin is bidding 3.

Non-issue. If they reject, just play it out. I never make non-obvious claims.

Nope. The hand you would double and then bid a non-forcing 2 is the hand I would bid a non-forcing but constructive 2 immediately.

Constructive non-forcing. But 1 (x) 1M is forcing.

I don’t care if it’s forcing or non-forcing.

A non-forcing 2 is a carryover from the days when people redoubled with every 10 count.

2 is forcing to suit agreement.

Why does 4 have lower upper limit than 3 given that 3 is a mini-splinter?

Yes, because it's the cheaper bid.
