Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How do you play this bidding sequence.
44 inv. NF, but 2 could be bid on 3

Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
I play reverses at the 2-level (e.g. 1 - 2 - 2) as not promising extras, but at the 3-level (e.g. 1 - 2 - 3) promising extras.
And the 1!C - 2!D Jump Shift
1 - 2: 54 4-9 1 - 2M: Weak
Fit Showing Jumps or Weak Jump Shifts in Competition
1 (1) 2: Weak 1 (1) 3: Fit i.e. jumps at 2-level are weak, 3-level fit
2!c With an Unbalanced Hand
One I've tried is: "If partner has only a King, can I make game?" If yes: open 2.
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
4M4m32 15/poor 16: open 1M and pass 1N response 4M4m32 good 16/17 open 1m, jump raise 1M to 3M
2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?
I've agreed this as 5422 15-17
XYZ players - what meaning do you give for those sequences
Sorry, should have been clearer about the second. 2 is FSF/XYZ-like in these auctions (invitational with spades or FG no clear direction) this makes 3 nat. FG. This makes the first auction similar enough for me to comment, but not the second.
