Keycard Responses to 2NT
Baron is by a long way the weakest of the conventional 3 responses to 2NT. It wrong-sides many contracts, and misses 5-3 fits.
Raising an invitational bid
Doug as it happens, I've just been re-reading your Bridge World articles on transfer doubles. I think the use of a double as a constructive raise, with or without the addition of transfers, is an important theoretical advance. For instance, the standard use of a negative double by advancer ...
When does a "Takeout Double" of 1!C become Ineffective?
I disagree that the holders of the 19-count did anything stupid. There is no suitable bid in the defensive bidding lexicon for that hand, so they took the only sensible action and passed. Just as they (and you and I) would have done with a 2=6=3=2 19-point ...

Does it matter how many points the opponents show?

Does it matter how many points the opponents show?
Agree with Steve. Until very recently, I would have passed over both 10-12 and 12-14. But a simulation I ran strongly suggests that passing with 13-14 over a mini-NT allows them to steal far too often.
