It's more likely that you want opponents to play their doubled contract when Blackwood responder has 0 keycards.

GN: “Vicious overbidders get lucky in 7.”

Bidding a 84% 7NT is vicious overbidding?

No. I never intend to play in hearts. We can easily have 13 top tricks with only 3 heart tricks.

You think West would bid 1NT with a singleton club king, or a void?

I don't know if there is any standard regarding 2m or 2om bids over 2.

Isn't 4 pointless if you're going to pass 4? You really expected partner to bid anything but 4 over 4?

I don't understand 3. Are you willing to stop in 3?

2 typically shows two spades, not three.

I'm 100% sure the redouble is not a support double.

I think it is useful to be able to bid 5 when you want to be declarer in 5.

Why is 2 forward-going over a forcing 2?

This is the first time I've heard of anyone playing 3 asking for a club stop.

Why is pass the winning call? On the normal diamond lead 3 makes with an overtrick.

Why can't the diamond lead be a passive lead from three or four small diamonds?

Quote from the back of “Preempts From A to Z”:

“In North America her accomplishments have been legendary - she won the first North American Championship event she entered; she smashed Jeremy Flint's record by becoming an ACBL Life master in 8 weeks.”

A six-card heart suit with values in the suit would've opened 2 or 3 already.

“… most decent players do require six.”

I went through all the boards played in the Spingold semifinals. I found 20 natural two-level overcalls. Of these 12 were on five-card suits.

So, the players in the Spingold semifinals are not decent, or your claim is wrong.
