The Fallacy of Restricted Choice

Wolfe Signoff versus CheckBack Stayman over 2NT rebid
Carol: Wolff signoff is a convention whereby responder's 3 bid forces opener to bid 3, after which responder can place the contract, either by passing 3 of rebidding their original suit. (There is a question as to whether: 1m - 1 2N - 3 3 ...
