Law on Bidding after Pause
Wait, What? "I was even more annoyed since I felt I should have just bid X without waiting. 2SX would have gone down just 1, so we went from a near-top 200 to average- 110. " Are you saying that if you had doubled quickly your partner would have passed? Are ...
A bad start

Responder has 2 in partner's major and 5 in partner's minor
Pairs - 2M Teams - pass (you are guaranteed an 8 card minor fit over a 1 opener and almost always an 8 card minor fit over a 1 opener)
