“How often have you had the auction:
2M-3x-? and:
1. you had a penalty double
2. it was worth more than anything you could make
3. they didn't have a runout
4. you could double any runout if they did”

Quite frequently actually.

I cant understand why bridge players do not want to play against the best opposition.

David, what you are posting was not played by Noah, but certainly was the system his sons used.

Quote John Adams: “I can't recall ever having this auction. Further, I can't recall ever discussing it with anyone in the world.”
Are you serious? I have definitely had this auction a number of times. I also cannot imagine not discussing this in a serious partnership.

If you think 2C is a “very unusual bidding action” then god help us!

Why on earth would you record this? Nth is entitled to bid 2 on this hand if he wants. Had Nth gone for 1100 against a game would you still want to record it. Sorry to say, but this really sounds like sour grapes.

Over a transfer overcall:
X to show the suit bid
Bid the suit shown to show a takeout of that suit.
With a penalty x pass and then double when overcaller's partner accepts the transfer

Really nice hand - simple but very elegant play. Thanks for posting this Harald. This is a theme I have seen before, but I doubt I would have the nous to think of this at the table.

I think no one made a mistake. Do you really want to be in this slam?

For me forcing with 3 or even 4 if the
suit is very good.

10-14 with a good 6 card suit.

Plus how can you find secondary fits? This seems like a really clumsy method. You are better off playing a full relay system.

I am puzzled as to why you seem to think the bid shows . Is that how you play it?

Surely 2 is 4th suit forcing.
“Some might quarrel with South's opening of 1D rather than 1C.” Many would not.

6NT bypasses 6S, which may well have been your best spot.

I assume you mean third 3rd D control. Now how do you distinguish between xx and Qx?
