Well some went down and when I said headache I was more thinking about bid over 4 in pass out position.

It is, 4 was opening bid that brought headache to opponents.

We do play 2 in other minor as 8-11hcp and 3-card support but not after double. Do you think it should be the same after double?

My options would not be good raise or pass, but 2 and 1NT.

Remembering tricks, 13 is far less than 52

We also play Multi-Landy but I found it easier to write it this way because it doesn't really matter if the bid is 2 or 2.

I know that most of the people will pass, I just wanted to show my partner that mostly people don't even consider bidding 2.

I couldn't agree more.

I agree with you. Let's say that my partner's style is with a two-suiter bid two-suiter but as I said, I suppose that points can't be distributed worse than in a hand you mentioned above.

Yes, it can be even weaker if that was your point, but I suppose that points can't be distributed worse.

Talking about that 2 can be passed I like to know that partner will never pass in pass-out position.

As for leaping michaels, I like to show my hand as quick as possible but I guess as most people play 2 as spades (over multi), 4 in given auction must be spades and a minor.

How do you act then when bidding goes 1-(2)-x-(3/4) or similar with strong hands including one major? I play that double suggests both majors, though not necessarily 4+4+.

So it can be taken as points except when you can bid 2NT (not feeling too embarrassed about your stoppers)?

And how do you show 15-17 balanced without stopper(s)?

I am interested to know how strong is 2-p-2-p-p-x in your system and how often do you miss to penalize them?

I think that problem with double is that it gives too much space to opponents.

Actually I have played in irregular partnership and bid 3♦ followed by 3♠ over 3♥ (by RHO) and by double over 4♥ (aggressive, I know, but I felt like neither -100 nor +620 would be good scores) which my partner corrected to 4♠ with 3 spades.

4♠ doubled was down one against cold 4♥, but, however, bridgemate showed one-digit number for us. Most of the tables didn't go further than 3♦, 3♠ or even 1NT on our line, and my partner has 3-3 in minors which I suppose most of the pairs open with 1♣.

I definitely agree with 2♠ in IMPs but I found a hand interesting for matchpoints.

I am not sure if I like more “solid 7+ major” or “a hand that didn't open 1NT just because of six majors (but if it was a minor it would be 1NT)”. I voted never bid it as well.

You include fact they are from same suit when you divide it by (26 choose 6). That way you can say that in first example there is nothing in formulation that says they have to be from a specific hand, but there is that (26 choose 13).

I agree it is more intuitive to create one whole hand than one whole suit if there is one suit taken into consideration :)
