2nt taking up too much space? Not really, here's a solution.
lol, I agree, great solution. I would even say make 2nt show 5-5 minor weak. I won't argue a big club auction 1c - 1d - 1h(artificial relay to 1s, or nat) - 1s - 1nt (19-21) is a much better start than opening 2nt. Here precision is clearly stronger , and I ...

oh I'm sorry I didn't notice your spade holding changed. Should sign off in 5c off two keys obviously. KQ10 AQxx Kxx AQx x, Kxx, AQxx, xxxxx You may go down a little over half the time, but here Opener had the near worst possible hand with maximum ...

I think it's very bad not to open both 1nt and 2nt with balanced 5 card major. I will often open 5-4 in the majors if I have say kx kx in the minors.

2nt - 3c - 3d(no 5M) - 3h(no hearts) - 3nt(no spades) - 4d (minor smolen) - 4h (key card clubs) - 4s (1 or 4 key) - 6c (5c if you're in a pessemistic mood)

How would u open AQJxx AQx Kxx Ax then?

Oh that works too. Now I can lose my 2 spades whenever or if I get in now I can draw 2 rounds of trumps and cross rough the last 3 trumps and get 3 diamonds. 1 club + 4 diamonds + 5 hearts = 10. Your line is also safer and better.

sorry typed an extra diamond for east Do tell me how to use hand editor to make a hand. I couldn't find it on this site.

A good partnership *almost* never forgets something like that. Focus is important. You are right if auction goes 2nt - 3s - (double) could be awkward and you might need to re-consider 3nt but now you are allowed to pass without 1 1/2 spade stops and let responder re-evaluate.

Interesting Paul that's a cute treatment. One problem is if responder is broke and wants to just transfer and pass.

lets see... 2nt - 3c - 3d - 3h - 3nt - 4d - 4s - 4nt - 5c - 5h - 5s - 6d - 7d This would be the auction I would have with a good partner. explanation of bids: 2nt - 3c (responder checking for 5c hearts from opener) - 3d (opener denying 5c major) - 3h (responder denying hearts) - 3nt (opener ...
