There's another name for it at matchpoints.

Richrd, the fit is not guaranteed by any means. We are living in a world where all kinds of undisciplined 6 card preempts are occuring. Doubles are being used more and more frequently. The accent is almost always on majors. And the 7hcp was not random, but 7 useful hcp ...
