Moving to Bay area (Foster city)
The BA economy can be gauged by the traffic. The economy is good. Traffic is a nightmare. Judge your commute, if you want to see your dog and child.
What is your ruling?
I'm one of the weaker players here, but did you really think that hand should bid Texas? On a weak 5-card suit? I'm wondering if my partners would read 4 as a splinter, and I will probably raise the reply to 6. I might try 5 ...
Thinking - About what?
An understatement. World class players, tyro ethics.

Convention Chart Revisions
Basic+ says "6. An Artificial NT overcall at any level for 2-suited takeout. A 1NT bid in this category must show at least Near-Average Strength. Below the 4-level at least one suit must be known."
