Low-level Penalty
Those problems surely exist after a 1 overcall. But are you then really in a worse position than after your 1NT bid?
How to find the diamond fit?
That depends where you play. For me 1SA ist the standard response in this situation. 1SA isn't perfect, but all other bids are far worse. For the 2 bid, the hand is far too weak if played as forcing an the s are far too weak if ...
How would you rule?
"Easily. All you need to do is consider the hands that wouldn't need to think over 4♠ and would X. In this case the hands that double with little thought are the ones where 5♣ has little chance and 4♠ is likely going down. " That would indeed be a ...

Michael, I cannot speak for Mike M, but I disagree on my part slightly. From my side it looks more: I want our game to played by the rules and if that means I can succesfully pull a slow double than that it ok with me. You dont want that ...
What are your preferred methods: priority to count or to attitude?
"I am happy to play what my partner wants." I have found out, thats it is not the case with me. I've played with partners who insist on giving count in a lot situations, and I have discovered I could not stand this to the point I ceased playing ...
Confession Is Good For The Goal
I strongly believe that your capacity of analysing bridge hands far exceeds mine or Mr Yates. But it seems you have not understand my point. My point was not that your analysis is flawed or wrong, and I hoped I have avoided to say that. I just gave a third ...
