Believe that an opening bid opposite an opening bid should have some play for 1NT.

Wish I could play more bridge.

Transfers After 1m-(1!S)
I think it also matters what 1 is. For instance if it is any balance hand, then it makes a lot more sense to give up the natural 2 bid. For my earlier comment, 1NT is definitely a contact you want to be able to bid and play ...
Transfers After 1m-(1!S)
I'm not convinced transfers are necessary here. 1m (2) is another beast.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: KT865 J3 AJT32 J
Just forcing 1 round.
6S & 4H rebids.
I think 1 - 2 and 1 - 2 are different (related to what Frances said above). I prefer 1 - 2 ; 2 to show 6 (since 2 defaults), and then 2NT can usually ask for more information. But 1 - 2 ; 2 ...
Flannery and the New Convention Chart
Why shouldn't the spread be more than 5 points? I've never understood the reasoning.
Flannery and the New Convention Chart
Gazzilli works very well with Flannery. 1H 1N 2C = 16+ (exactly 4-5 if spades and hearts) 1H 1N 2S = regular reverse but promises at least 4-6.
Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: QJ74 7 AJ4 A8652
I just have to hope it's the same auction at the other table (i.e. our teammates didn't bid just 3 allowing a 4 cuebid).
Countering interference over a 2C Opening Bid (Strong Bal 23+ or GF)
I guess I've never understood why people like Dbl as the bust bid. What's opener supposed to do over it, since 2NT should be natural. With the bust, responder can instead pass, and later pull if necessary (sometimes bust is the same as penalty pass, as in nowhere ...
How do you play 5!h in this sequence?
From a slightly different world, if Turbo is common to the partnership: 2 Dbl P 4 P ? 4 = spade cue, then Turbo starts at 4N (4N is even, 5m is odd KCs) 4N = even # keycards missing spade control (really in context, it has to be 4KC) 5m ...
