That's Universal
From Wikipedia: "Lemmings have become the subject of a widely popular misconception that they are driven to commit mass suicide when they migrate by jumping off cliffs. It is not a deliberate mass suicide where the animal voluntarily chooses to die, but rather a result of their migratory behavior. Driven ...

Generally speaking, I like to have a full opening bid or near-perfect shape for a balancing double. Without either, I prefer to balance with a bid.
Art Korth's bidding problem: Kx JTx AQxx Kxxx
Thanks. Just checking. This was the subject of a misunderstanding and a break in tempo. There was a perceptible break in tempo by South over 1NT. His 2 bid was intended as artificial and game forcing. North, who believed that 2 was natural and not forcing, bid 2 ...

There you have it. A ...

So, if they run, you can bid 3NT later if you want to, or double them if you choose. They are not the only ones with options.

Ian: If the opps will let you play in 2xx, are you not willing to take advantage of that? I posted some time back about a one-of-a-kind result I obtained in a Swiss Teams match when my opponents allowed me to play in 2xx and I made 4 ...

The type of expert that has a different understanding about the pass of 2xx than you have. I have heard from players who I respect who do not have an agreement for this basic sequence. And there have been discussions on BW about what is meant by a pass ...
