"you were too weak for 2s initially" This has always been a mystery to me. With a weak raise of the highest suit, people think it is a good idea to give the person in 4th chair the entire two-level to begin competition. But, it isn't a complaint; I ...
Conventions that work best (when they don't come up)

1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S

Bidding Problem in Real Time
Glad I could provide something to misdirect from the subject. Pretend it said 'effect' and 'probing'.
