Vintage Precision Opening Bid Question
1+3 seems the way to go. I lean towards 2 bid rather than 3 as my 2nd option...
Sometimes declaring isn't fun
The only way to invite with 3c support is to go thru "longer" minor. Nothing to discuss here actually, added bidding for those who prefer to know if opponents have possibility to enter the bidding.
Sometimes declaring isn't fun
This was the full hand: ........... A J 6 ........... A 6 4 ........... 8 7 5 3 ........... Q 10 4 52...................Q87 Q109752....... KJ3 K102................ Q94 J6 .................. K753 ........... K 10 9 4 3 ........... 8 ........... A J 6 ........... ...

What are the benefits of UD Attitude, Standard Count?
After messing up a signal, they can differ which one of those two were in use in particular situation. ;)
