Opening Precision 2C
You understand correctly.
Opening Precision 2C
I think the 2C-2D-2S auction would need to be enhanced but the probability of a 5-6 hand is less than 1/10 of the total 2C openings so the probabilities in the suit asked wouldn't change much.
Active Ethics; System Pre-Alerts
We pre-alert whenever anything is unusual. 1-1H/1S 8-11HCP 4 card suit, canapé' 1NT Forcing new suits NF 1D forcing artificial 15+, 1NT and above GF artificial 1C 11-14HCP 0+ Clubs, may have 5 card major, 1D artificial GF, 1H/1S NF all 2 level bids natural and 10-14HCP This ...
2!C natural and limited, and then . . . .
never one to step away from a challenge, I ran 10,000 hands. 4H still makes 21% of the time and the bidding debt (2C vs 3C) is 20% (92%-72%) and 3C make more often than 2H (72%-63%) So I conclude that, understanding double-dummy analysis for what it ...

@Jim Here is a DealMasterPro 1000 hand simulation where opener has 11-15HCP and 6 clubs and responder had 8-10HCP, 5-6 Hearts and 2-3 clubs. 1-2C makes 92% and 3C makes 73%. Therefore, when responder bids he is incurring a set 19% of the time. 2-4H makes 21% gaining a game ...

Jim- Yep. What the simulations showed that when responder has 8-10HCP (8WP) a 5 card suit and 2-3 Clubs a trial bid of 2 of the major is indicated. If opener has 12+WP and 3 card support the safety level is raised to 3M. If opener has 4 card ...

Dave- Having just finished extensive simulations on 2C and 2D I will say that 2H, 2S need to be forcing to a safety level of 3C at least at IMPS. In fact we use the transfer structure I showed earlier but the simulations showed the instance of a game in ...

Jim I have attached the complete transfer structure Lance and I play over 2C. (WP=working points meaning minor honors in the short suits are discounted, splinter/keycard swiss=is a relay system allowing bidder to indicate an undisclosed singleton or the lowest control) This structure is based on simulations ...

If 2C is 6 Clubs catering to a 6-4 hand seems illogical. A 6-3-2-2 or 6-3-3-1 is twice as likely as 6-4-2-1 and 3 time as likely to have 3 card support for a 5 card suit.
2!C natural and limited, and then . . . .
We also play conditional transfers in the majors with opener accepting with a doubleton. My simulations show very few slams but many light games. The transfer requires only 8+ HCP with an 8 HCP hand having 8 working points. I agree that starting at 2S as opposed to 2D really ...
