What do you use 3-level overcalls of 1NT for?
13-15 v weak NT Weak but not mad vs strong NT 6+ suit. With a solid suit and 7 tricks i prefer penalty X if im on lead
Better Bidding of Potential Slam Hand
Yes MOSCA is the Italian that invented the system which was later refined and popularised by Fantunes. When they were caught cheating people change the name back to MOSCA. I dont know how any of these players treated this 20-21 balanced hand though, this is what we do, it would ...

Do you open all 12-counts?

Bidding philosophy
Lawrence’s statement applies to psyching 1. When you have short 1 and long you can almost guarantee that if you overcall 1 partner will raise aggressively. This sometimes works out quite well but only when are close to 1444 around the table.
