Showing both majors over 1NT - 2!C
I think it is a bad idea but abstained because I have never played it and therefore haven't found it to be a bad ides.
Takeout Doubler’s Cue Bid after Minor Suit Advance
I think that double followed by 3 shows a better suit (usually 6) and that 2 followed by 3 shows this kind of suit. Both auctions are very strong and I have played that the latter is forcing.
Takeout Doubler’s Cue Bid after Minor Suit Advance
2 intending to bid 3. I play that sequence as forcing but would take it even if I didn't have that agreement. The lack of further bidding by opponents suggests that partner has length but necessarily strength in . It is possible that s/he is 5 ...

Eric Kehr's bidding problem: 74 AJT AKJ AJT98
The 2nd article in Jeff Rubens' series on The Useful-Space Principle (The Bridge World, December 1980) is mostly about Coping with a Jump Overcall. He suggests three different approaches all of which give up 2NT as natural. One is very similar to lebensohl; the other two are similar to transfer ...
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: AQ854 K AQ975 A9
Having bid 4 I would bid 5 if I wasn't going to pass 4. Add me to the list of people who think 4NT is natural. I might have responded 2 instead of 1,
Eric Kehr's bidding problem: 74 AJT AKJ AJT98
@Eric: Why couldn't 3 by opener show real and real ? @Richard: Playing 3 as new suit makes sense when 1 is opened with balanced hands out of range for natural NT opening. Here 1 is doubleton only if opener is 4=4=3 ...
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: 2 AJT954 KT986 3
Part of the ACBL Encyclopedia entry on Muiderberg Two-Bid: "Muiderberg Twos consist of an opening 2 as a Multi, weak in either major (6-10 HCP), optionally with various strong hand possibilities. 2 and 2♠ promise at least five cards in the bid major and a minor suit of ...
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: 2 AJT954 KT986 3
2 If I wasn't playing Muiderberg (or something else to show two-suiter and less than 1 opening) I would open 1 as opposed to whatever showed weak 2.
David Burn's bidding problem: AQT72 A3 Q93 J72
I suggest that you play whatever you play when partner opens 1NT and RHO overcalls 2 showing an undisclosed major. You have to adjust your ranges if you play strong NT. This may not be optimal but it reduces memory strain. I play transfer lebensohl so I would bid ...
