A thought much would it be worth to see dummy before the lead?
You can't draw conclusions just by looking at the % votes. Players who are competitive in national events will vote differently from merely good players.
Modify style with vulnerability?
I don't like methods that cause me to bid 1x-1y-2N light where the 1y response also might be light.

Rajendra Sirohia's bidding problem: T KQ9842 86 A432
I think 2nd seat doesn't necessarily mean you should have a stronger hand to open a preempt; it means you should have a normal hand - whatever that is for you. For example, I'd be reluctant to open 3 2nd seat favorable with Kx / x / xxx / KQJxxxx because ...
David Genne's bidding problem: 8 AK2 A75 AT8432

I believe many play that after 1-(1), X shows both majors, hence 1 shows only 4.
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
"Winter is coming."
Kevin Cline's bidding problem: KQJ742 AQ4 6 932
I say 5. Let's start by showing first-round control of - at least that's what it'll mean when I bid 6 next. Note that I want to declare in case lefty has a void.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: QJ6 A92 Q942 Q74
I'd bid 2 the first time. This isn't a limit raise, but Axx / QJx / Qxxx / Qxx is.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 963 K8762 Q7 J53
3rd seat favorable might be xx / QJTxxx / Qxxx / x.
