Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Sometimes I don’t believe the results on a board.
I have also seen the auction 2-2-P. The 2 response showed no Ace or King, so opener passed. Maybe that really wasn’t a 2 opener.
1Nt---(2M)---X as penalties
None of the options quite fit. I prefer negative doubles with Phillip Martin’s approach. I have gotten more penalties this way than I ever did with penalty doubles. However, if partner really prefers penalty doubles, I will play that.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AQ9743 7 J85 964
Would have bid either 3 or 4 last round.
What does 4 clubs show in this auction?
The 2!D F/NF f2f poll
If you play 2 non-forcing it is essential that you raise to 3.

Paul Hightower's bidding problem: KQ2 KQ42 KQ6 KT5
Clear downgrade for me.
Chris Gibson's bidding problem: AT8652 9 8 A8753
I agree also that it a 1 bid even in a standard system. Certainly a more comfortable opening if playing a Big Club.
Whats the ethical thing to do?
I don’t see that the hesitation causes any problem at all. How does partner know whether I was considering passing as opposed to considering bidding 3NT?
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: Q8764 J873 T2 K3
Easy pass at matchpoints. Harder at IMPs.
