Maybe doubling 2NT, even though it looks absurd at first glance, might help solve the problem here.

Pass is for penalties in my book, so 2 and hope for the best.

If I doubled and partner bids 4, I would happily pass. The real problem is if partner bids THREE spades.

Or at least after failing to double 1 like a normal person, surely we can double 1NT for t/o of diamonds?

I'm shocked anyone is even considering passing what's clearly a forcing bid, let alone it being a majority vote.

Partner should have something like a 3=3=1=6 in a hand too strong to rebid 3 on the second round. Having said that, it's still not at all clear what to do.

No and no. Also, playing 3 over 1 as wjo is probably not a good method even though just about everyone plays it.

2 over 2 is plenty.

From the way the problem is written, it sounds like you already knew what the bid meant, just forgot that it had to be alerted.

I play this as a forcing pass auction, where double by opener is t/o (usually something extra) and double by advancer is DSI.

Not if it's systemic, surely.

No, 3 isn't specifically a punt, just a preference. What responder does after that is up to him.

Playing that 3 promises a fit leaves you high and dry with this sort of hand.

Isn't this just a 2 opener?

I don't see why this wouldn't be a more multi-directional hand that doesn't want to defend 4x, such as KQ9xxx Axx Kxxx.

4 seems questionable tbh. Now it's nearly impossible to catch up.

I actually liked the even older version of BBO better than the main one. As is it now, I'd have to say the new version is a major step backwards.
