about me
I've been addicted to bridge since I was first introduced to it in high school. Over the years, I've come up with a number of bidding ideas, some of which have been published in The Bridge World.

An awkward hand type
I prefer 2 - 2/ ; 2, followed by 3 (inv.) if pard bids 2NT
Advancing a Nebulous 2!C Response
With club length, responder may continue with 2, 3 or 3 if he'd rather show than ask (updated above).
Problem hands after 1!c - 2!s - X (Part 1)
That seems like a good answer to me, except that it probably wrong-sides 3NT when pard holds a spade stopper. Is this worth worrying about?
Problem hands after 1!c - 2!s - X (Part 2)
This poll was for people who didn't vote for 2NT in the first poll.

David has it correctly -- sorry for the confusion.
Problem hands after 1!c - 2!s - X (Part 2)
But would there be a minimum hand where you wouldn't bid 3 at this point with 4?

Sorry if I made the auction seem confusing -- it's opener's rebid after pard's negative double.

I wouldn't argue with you, but some of my partners have complained that Qxx was insufficient.
Ed Herstein's bidding problem: Axx 98xx Q AKJTx
Responder can be have 4 hearts and 5+ diamonds if invitational or better.
Another approach with balanced 18-19 HCP hands
We open 1, but it isn't a "short club" since we'll then have at least 3 of them.
