David Caprera's bidding problem: A9xx AQ AKJxx Ax

Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
I have lost the thread. In Bryan's example, the call out of rotation was a Pass. So 2/1 in any suit (in response to 1S) will not be comparable - the only comparable calls will be weak spade raises and 1NT (if that is limited to less than opening ...
