Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
XY NT by a passed hand
The poll needs at least 2 more options: Revert to all bids natural, and Other.
The second card in a suit
The 50-50 split in votes on the following/discarding part (as of 18 hours after OP) suggests this one needs partnership discussion.
Is there a PROVEN best carding method?
This HML problem can also create a tempo/UI issue. A break in tempo in an obvious count situation could suggest holding 3 cards and making this decision of whether H can be afforded.
You play Gazzilli but not Flannery
With 4 great open 1, else with 5 bad and minor values open 1NT, else with great rebid 2, else 2. This is part of the reason we adopted Flannery not long after Gazzilli.

What does this 3!D bid mean?
