BW 2/1: 1!D-2!C-2M
Were I do define this sequence... 2 could be 11 balanced. 2M or 3 would show unbalanced hands and enough to game force opposite 11. 3 would show 4 card support unbalanced. If shortness somewhere, would be minimum hand else splinter. 2M would be 4-5 2D would ...
Best way to handle this situation?
No. Never the term "interpreting" Opps are entitled your agreements, or lack thereof The are not entitled interpretations, nor is your partner. See Kit's response the difference is subtle, but important.
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
true. Undiscussed, I would not promise or deny anything at this point. There might be an advantage to having an agreement here, not sure, but can play whatever.
John Miller's lead problem: Q53 KJT932 64 65
The Ten lead might force partner to play declarer for Jx. I'd think about what could go wrong.
BW 2/1: 1!D-2!C-2M
I just show a 4 card major that wants to bid the major.
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
It seems to me we have already exceeded the level of discussion that I typically have for a casual partnership playing 2/1.
John Miller's lead problem: Q53 KJT932 64 65
You are being too kind to your partner.

Expanding on Gary's mentor idea.... How about pyramid points? They could be sandstone color. You need x number sandstone points for each ranking. Sandstone point are earned when a member you recruited attains various milestones.. Getting a new member all the way to national master should be enough sandstone ...
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: 64 QJT3 K97 AJ96
You can balance with this kind of hand if you want. The problem with bidding directly is that partner is allowed to have a real 2-suiter, and we have support!
Settle A Bet
so swap the N/S hands and we make 5. If you were +200 in a part score, maybe you would be having the opposite argument.
