Todd Holes's bidding problem: A642 A7 A862 Q76
2 with 5+. If partner has a major, she bids it. If I have support for the major, I support.
Todd Holes's bidding problem: A642 A7 A862 Q76
No. If partner bids 2NT I'll show delayed support for s. Partner should be able to figure out my 4243 (or possibly 4144) shape. Our methods specifically deny a 5th in this auction, with 2 not promising extras.

Todd Holes's bidding problem: KT8632 --- T65 A742
If playing "natural responding methods," with the requirement that a positive suit response includes say, 2 of the top 3 honors, then 2 is understandable. I agree that s are the agreed suit. With s, a simple 3 rebid would seem to be the simplest way to convey ...

Sorry, Phillip. I edited the OP to reflect that jump-shifts are weak while you were writing this.
Extras or Minimum
Ellis, so you are saying: 1) 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 3NT shows 18-19. 2) 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2NT shows a minimum. Presumably 12-14. What about: 3) 1 - 1 - 2NT? How does this differ from no.1 above? 4) How ...
Does "Fast Arrival" Apply Here?
Does 2 indicate extras? If not, why not?
General Principles
In other words, almost unanimous.
