Favorite Conventions
I named a cat after Namyats, but it's not actually my favorite convention.

Strong Notrump 2/1

How to continue?
A club to the 7 might have been interesting. :) Anyone bad enough to double might not think to split.
Systems after (weak two) - 2N - (P)
Thanks everyone for your responses!
I have to wait 90 minutes between posting bidding problems. Why?
For the second time this week I wanted to post exactly two bidding problems. I can see rate limiting to prevent 10 or more consecutive posts, but maybe it could start after two or three posts, not one?
Johan Karlsson's bidding problem: KJ8 A9 KQJ83 KT8
Partner could also stare at your 3 and say "oh, what a dummkopf I am, 2N is natural." The opponents may not be so pleased with your active ethics. :) Also the clubs are full of partners (fortunately not yours or mine) who supinely pass 3 in this auction ...
Johan Karlsson's bidding problem: KJ8 A9 KQJ83 KT8
I was unduly influenced by reading Bruce's comment before voting. My Flannery defense (which I think is BWS) includes 2 natural, so it seems reasonable for Stayman to exist over natural notrump to find the 4-4 fit.
Johan Karlsson's bidding problem: KJ8 A9 KQJ83 KT8
How is passing taking advantage of the UI? I would expect to play in a 3-3 or 4-3 fit with trumps breaking badly.
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: xx A9xx AQJT9 xx
I'm surprised no one voted for my second choice of 3N. Logically this should show a 4 raise suitable for notrump. (A la Pavlicek this sequence shows 12-14 balanced with 1N absolutely forcing, but my impression is most 2/1 players don't do that.)
David Parsons's bidding problem: J98 K97 AKJ9 A53
I wonder how the passers would describe how the clubs are distributed in the four hands.
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: J876 T QJ52 K987
"Two not-hearts"
Is this agreement announced or alerted or not mentioned
"Hand valuation is not a system, a convention." Well, in this case it is a system: "with 11 HCP, we must have either 3 quick tricks or 2 QT and a 5 card minor." and the opponents deserve to know that.
