Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Tell me why I'm wrong
I agree with Nigel and I guess with you Richard. I much prefer an immediate x to passing and then bidding a nothing 2S later. With QTxx of hearts I would prefer to pass and pass a takeout x.
Learn Precision in 15 minutes
Acol? No. There are far too many nuances in Acol to claim the system has ease of understanding. I agree that Precision is easier for newbies.
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
Simple. This is a 1h opening.
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
So 3514 shapes are disallowed in your games.

Do you play high stakes rubber Marshall? I would love to play agaist you.
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
So you have xxxxx Qxx Axxx x. Do you have to bid 3♥ over 2♣? If not that, then what? Well, yes you do. Not optimal, I agree. Wouldn't this hand be much better just bidding 2♦ and splintering over partner's 2♥ call? Maybe, but at least I ...
I still don't get this whole ethics thing

2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
As the responding hand shows shape as well as values in the suit bid, I hardly think it is "point count steps." 2S - semi pos bal. Semi pos = 6-8 2NT semi pos 3 suited, maybe some 5440 3C/D/H/S semi pos transfer into the next higher suit 3NT ...
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
Interesting thread. 2D waiting is one of the worst conventions I have ever come across. I have played 2D as all positives, 2H as all negatives, and 2S+ as semi positives, say about 5-8. This has worked far better than the omnibus 2D waiting that some here seem to like ...
sometimes your system just works
6NT on board 2 deserves a zero. This is a dreadful contract compared to 6C. I agree with Kieran's comment regarding 3C or 3Cx on board 3.
