Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Three card limit+ raise over 1M - (X)
The points you make support the exact opposite conclusion. "with a constructive 3-card raise, 8-10, you have already bid out your hand with 2, so why should you bid again over further competition?" It can, of course, be correct to compete at the three-level after making a simple raise ...
