Roger Lee has some good stuff on Wolffie for 1C-1D, but I can't find the link. It was easy to integrate with our (fairly complicated) 1m-1M Wolff stuff.

EDIT: It may have been posted on BBO in some thread on Wolffie–search for “Lee Transfers.”

I think there is absolutely no reason not to play 2N as GB/Lebish. Gives more definition to all calls R might make.

I have a SNT partner and a WNT partner who prefer what I use a radical KISS approach with them – they champion “judgment” and cite memory burden. I like structure, as many useful conventions as I can integrate, and don't have a problem remembering them. Faced with scorn and condescension, what else is left but to gently remind that it also takes “judgment” to decide when and how to employ a conventional structure – all situations are not created equal.

Curious what was the Drury responder's hand?

I'm curious about follow-ups after the 1N-splinters b/c I'm sure they will be sensible and practical. But either my browser won't get to the content, or the content has not been posted, and I don't find it on LC's site either. Care to expound?

Can't help it. Have K-S gene.

EDIT: oops, thought it was a 4H-5C thingie. Now that I see the pattern, I don't want to bid unless I'm playing weak NT, and I'm not; if the director makes me, I guess I'm for 2N, hating it.

Another question: Is this a strong C system–probably not, since 2S is not an option?

When partner bid 2N Leb, s/he intends either to pass 3C, bid 3D or 3H to play or bid 3S (Stayman) or 3N showing or asking (which version are we playing? If Leb then 3S/3N is showing, 3D seems to makes no sense unless partner has a pure psych, so we must be playing asking). I have no interest in hearing any of this, so I'm not interested in playing 3C, 3H or 3N, so I have D like xx(x)-2-6-(2 or 3), probably xxx-2-6-2. Pass.
