BW 2/1: Jumps to 3NT
While it is important to agree if these jumps to 3NT show or deny extras , it is as much important to agree how many cards in opener's major are shown by bidding 3NT. 2 exactly ? less than 2? I think 3nt should not be bid with both 2 cards ...
BW 2/1: Splinters Into Opener's Suit
We play that responder rebidding 2M shows 2 card support (often Hx). This helps to sort out a difficult hand type , and play 4M on the 5-2 , when it is better than 3NT. It also makes opener's life easier when he has a 6 card M , by locating the ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
if , as you suggest , "lack of preparation by the lawyers" drastically affects the outcome of the procedure , this (to me) suggests "an example of wrong procedure".
Who Will Win the English Open Trials?

Is your 1NT structured altered if (1) partner is a passed-hand; (2) your 1NT call is an overcall?
It's funny that these days the objection to assigning "Natural" meaning to a bid, is that partner might forget what it means..

How about playing (1♥) 1NT (p) 2♦? As ... Diamonds ? (signoff)
Pop Quiz: Which one is Michaels?
Once in a national tournament , LHO opened 1D , pd overcalled 1H , and RHO bid 1C... I decided to accept to be able to support cheaply by bidding 1H. LHO , without apparent difficulty doubled , and RHO alerted and explained that this is a support double showing 3 clubs...
Scrambling 2NT, direct show values or denies them ?
I think the terminology in the header might be wrong. The term "Scrambling" 2NT is used for a 2NT bid which suggests several strains to play in without particular reference to strength. THe term that is imo , more suitable for the contents of the article is "Good/Bad 2NT" or ...
