How do you differentiate between 1 and 2?
Suit Agreement and Slam Move after 2NT Open
Make it any flavor of Stayman you wish, Ed.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: Q6 A9 AK863 A653
Greg, I think Bob was confused because you chose 1NT (in the poll) as opener's rebid, which shows 12-14. 2, of course, has a far wider range than 12-14. More like an upper range of about 17 or so, even a bad 18, whatever your jump-shift threshold is.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Chris, your threshold for "strange" needs to be recalibrated.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
There is always an "other."
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
"My issue is that partner's pass over 2♦ has a much higher minimum than 1♣-(P)-P does." Craig, would you pass over 2 with Kieran's example? xxxx,xxx,xxxxx,x? That looks like the same minimum. I see nothing "much higher" about it.

"Often the term “psyche” is shortened to “psych” - indeed the relevant article on Wikipedia seems to imply that this latter usage is the correct one." "Psych" is a shortened version of "psychic." "Psyche" has two syllables. It is a common misspelling for psych.
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Well done, Phil. Nice way to kick off the holiday season!
Forcing or not?
Undiscussed, forcing. (New suit, unpassed responder, blah-blah-blah.) But it can be played either way with discussion.
