I don't think its obvious at all. Further 3 is the sort of bid to torture partner, so I think mosty South.

I think a slight improvement is cash h ace before eliminating minors.

Yes Mark and you are quoting information that is designed to be read by beginning players until they have experience in the real bridge world, in the same way that an opening bid is 13 points.

Quote Mark: “Because weak in most partnerships is likely 4-10.”
In your opinion, but 1) you are not a controlling authority, 2) how did you arrive at 4-10? Why not 3 to 9 etc etc? A good 10 is an opening for some of us.

“(ME: I don't think we open weak 2 bids with zero points, do we?)” In third seat NV, sure! You might not, but “we” do.

“No one is talking about bidding 2NT to play, we're talking about bidding 2NT so doubler can bid 3NT.” So Mike, are you saying 2NT is forcing on opener to bid 3NT? (Sarc off.)

Richard, you keep on posting this. Let me ask you, how often are you going to make exactly 8 tricks? That is what you are betting on. I really think 2NT as natural is a poor treatment here.

“So guess who’ll be rooting hard for India on Sunday?” In the Australian or American sense of the word?

“Sachin Tendulkar, the second-greatest batsman, ever.” Wow, a major overbid Khokan. Double.

Ron the lesser, what are the limits? We are kept in darkness. Most of us find Avon's tales amusing.

Avon is a good raconteur. We have swapped many stories over dinner in Vientiane.
