@ Richard
when i play 2/1 with variable NT, when SNT is on, 1m - 1 - 1 may be balanced, but otherwise implies an unbalanced hand - opener hiding the spades

now that you mention NT, one thing i dislike is when opener has 12-14, responder about 5-7 and she ends up declaring the NT hand: 1 - 1 - 1M - 1NT

“2N typically shows two side suits stopped, 3♣ shows one”
my sources say without or with a singleton :)
i guess mine are IMPs oriented, while yours are directed towards a 3NT matchpoint score

2: 12-14 4 cards in a major + 5+ clubs, or 6+ clubs
answers:
2: one-round forcing relay asking partner to show his 4-card major, if he has one
2 major: nonforcing with at least a 5-card suit (6-11 HCP)
2NT: either Transfer to 3♣ - weak hand (5-8 HCP) with a fit or
a suiter without ♣, GF
3♣ invitational (9-11)
3♦/♥/♠ = invitational natural

partner has AK, K and K
responder has only 11 tricks, so should stop in 5

i had noticed that they change the meaning of bids from one version to the next one

Thanks

PS: probably i'll end up buying either the PDF or the book

if i go to
“https://jassem.pl/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Polish_Club-2010.html#rr”
i find this: “The 2NT response shows 11-12 HCP with no 4-card major or (as a rule) 5-card minor”, so, when i say “should be” i'm referring to that version (the most updated i know) of PCI.

At the moment i have energy to study and systematize the main structure of the system; later on maybe i'll lean towards transfers world :)

As i said somewhere, i find PC not difficult but fascinating: reminds me of BIG BANG in the point that there are several ways to reach an objective, so there are lots of inferences, but as i state in my card, i'm just an advancing player

I agree and understand everything you just wrote

My doubt is if there is some systemic error in saying that 2 is invitational while 2NT is GF, that's all

One question, if you dont mind: why do you use your WJS a bit higher than usual, i mean, what's wrong with the 2-5 (6) frame?

Kerry: i went to investigate and in PCI pro i found the following sentence:
“after 1♣ opening the treatment makes it possible to distinguish between 2♠ - invite and 2NT – forcing”
but the 2NT answer to 1 is intended to be 11-12 H, non forcing,
so both 2 and 2NT should be invitational… do you agree?

i forgot to inform that the 2 opening means 11-14 with 6 clubs or 5 clubs and 4 of a major, NF, of course

“On the basis of your summary, the majority vote for 1♣ is difficult to understand: I see no justification for treating this hand as 15-17 with long clubs.”
agree 100%

“I think that, given the quality of the club suit, I would prefer to treat it as four diamonds and five clubs. However, I have never played the system and, for all I know, this might produce an insoluble problem in some later auctions.”
now you see the point of my posting

here the problem evolves around assuming a 4-5 or then treating the hand as a one suiter in clubs, i guess
if the former, open 1 , else 2 - that's my opinion (i misclicked in the poll)

opening 1 generates a problem: the cheapest rebid for NT promises 12-14: 4414 or a balanced hand; rebiding clubs implies 15-17 with clubs; finally rebiding diamonds at the 2 level means any GF hand

the above link is the most updated info i've about PC

English isnt my native language, so sometimes i have difficulties in understanding others, as just happened with your last post: if you are questioning whether i made an effort to give readers a change to answer my doubt properly, the result of the poll talks by itself. My only regret is that no one posted the rebid i asked for..
