Rebid Problem with good hand
About as well as I like them after 1.
Rebid Problem with good hand
Even better reason to play 17hcp notrump showing 2254. I don't know what the point is behind such comments unless backed up with a coherent theory of why such a range solves similar problems without creating new ones.
Rebid Problem with good hand
I am in the 1N opening camp. Yes, the hand is too strong for it. But I don't like the options after it goes 1-1. If partner transfers to and then invites game in NT I will bid 4

I believe quite strongly that the big hand should open 1. As a famous player once said: "If I can just get by this round..". Especially when playing two card openers, partners always seem to dredge up some response. Harder, perhaps, would be if the suits were ...
ATB - missed grand
Certainly, first bidding a solid six card suit seems better than a moth eaten five carder. But, perhaps the methods did not allow that. And I am wonderering how Frances later diagnoses the magic doubleton A (not to mention the four low s opposite, not three low)
