8hcp is more than enough to double on distribution if your overcalls show good hands

In Lawn Tennis one may be defaulted for not trying
David Corn's bidding problem: 954 T86432 J876 ---
In what universe does 1 get passed out? having passed originally you may bid hearts showing weakness with a long suit and no tolerance for clubs

with clubs my method is to bid 1NT with weakness and a diamond stop. and 2 with good clubs

2 or 2 according to methods

Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
I find the strength of precision is in the part scores where we get to stop earlier particularly in minor suits after a 1M FNT 2x sequence
