How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
I am in the camp that prefers that bidding past 2 of one's original suit shows extras (could be shape extras, e.g. 5=6), but I play it both ways with different partners. I would propose an auction such as 1H-2D-2H-3C-3S-4C-4S-6C. While there is ambiguity about opener's ...
Improve my Guess
Go up queen. Otherwise, awful lot of bidding at these colors by LHO on only QJ,QJ,J(?), plus RHO might have opened with a 3=3=2=5 11 count (albeit 8 losers). Awful lot of bidding by South, too, given a willingness to pass 5D.
2 parter
Michael: Thanks so much for your explanation! Very helpful.
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
My partners and I alert that opener has an unbalanced hand.
2 parter
Michael: you have exposed a(nother) gap in my bridge knowledge. I was unaware that "scramble" was a thing different from (and apparently the opposite of) a lebensohl-type approach where bidding directly showed constructive values, and going through 2NT showed the weak hand. Obviously, the assumption behind my comments was ...

It is possible that the director at the time got it wrong, but as you can tell, all these years later, I am not bitter.
2 parter
I believe this is a slam try, else 4NT as COG. I might have bid 2S after the double. Partner would know I have very few points, since I didn't make a negative double. I disagree with those who say that I "promise" 4+ spades. If I had a ...

Mike: It is possible that either the rules have changed since this happened to me (it was a number of years ago) or that the director was simply wrong in the ruling. Before posting, I should have checked the current rules to see if that is still the case. What ...

Actually, as I noted upthread, you can get into trouble by over-alerting. "Trouble" may be too strong a word, since I don't believe he was threatened with a procedural penalty, but my friend was told not to alert things that were not alertable. I suppose the theory is that ...

Having gone for a number a couple months back after balancing 2S into a 1H-(P)-1NT-(P)-2X-(P)-P auction, and finding my RHO with four spades, I tend to favor having a 1H opening by a Flannery pair alerted. Contrary to its professed wish for full disclosure ...
