Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What does this bid mean?
At a guess, some may play 5C as exclusion 1430 in support of H, in which case 5D shows one keycard
Best methods after our weak (12-14) 1NT is doubled?
I've also used Jeff's Twisted Swine for about 4 years now with very good success. I have found no downside in not getting to play 1NTX, and 1NTXX has been a winning spot about 75% of the time. You can find his notes here: http://www.jeff-goldsmith.org/

Neil Swanson's bidding problem: Jx Jxx AKx JT987
I honestly did not want to bias the results in any way. I thought 2NT was a 10 on this auction. All the honors are working. Both minors are double stopped, we have two entries. 2S is very wide ranging, so I tend to use it as a weak bid ...
