Does this treatment have a name?

Depends on who I’m playing with. With most of my partner’s, this is not quite a limit raise.

Agree. Either pass or 3, not 2NT

Just a penalty double. No lead connotations.

Wouldn’t be surprised if we went down. Wouldn’t be surprised if we made six.

I think this depends on your negative double philosophy. If it is primarily to show the unbid major without regard to the unbid minor, 4. If it strongly tends to show support for the unbid suits, 4.

In fact, 4 and 4 will both work to differing degrees. One will get you to game, the other to slam. Partner held

When I vote in bidding polls, I always check how a few other people vote. I always check to see how Richard Fleet voted (and a few others). If he voted differently, I always wonder if I am missing something.

Agree with all of your points. Believe the Director was wrong.

I think it is a tough game to reach no matter what system you are playing.

I think it is close between responding 1 or 2 to the takeout double. But passing the raise to 2 is inconceivable.

Matter of perspective. When I overcalled 3, it was with the intent of rebidding 3 or 4 if possible.

I do not think rebidding 3 with a weak four-card suit is common. I couldn't come up with a reasonable path to 6 without some specialized bids. I was asked how the auction should go and I don't see any route to 6 for the average club player.

I don't think partner would make a negative double with 4-5
