Artificial sandwich 1N
5-4 either way and in between a double and a 2nt bid. Double with 4-4 and an opening hand (or very close to it). Bid 2nt with a weak hand and at least 5-5.
12-14 nt, rebid with 15-17

The Best Convention Ever
You're probably right. My source was my faulty memory although I did try to find the source but failed.
The Best Convention Ever
Peg - You are so right! Rodwell-Meckstroth play support doubles only over their nebulous and limited Precision 1 (11-15, 3+ s) openings in which (a) They don't have to worry about strong hands and (b) It's much harder for them to find their minor suit fits so scrambling ...
The Best Convention Ever
Bill - Best laugh I've had in a while! Thanks!
