Necessary Shift
In the bidding, would it be completely reckless at these colours to try 3NT over 3 suggesting values just shy of a game force with at least 5-5 in the minors?
How good a 1651 hand needs to be to do 2 over 1 game force?
A good hand for playing (uncontested) 1 - 3 as natural invitational. If not playing that method, I’m sure I would stretch and respond 2 rather than 1NT as game could easily be cold opposite a suitable weak NT.
Range Stayman after a Protective 1NT?
David Gold recently wrote an article in English Bridge recommending 1NT as 11-16 after 1 any - pass - pass. Advancer’s 2 acts as a shape and range enquiry. After which, the rebids are as follows:- 2 = any 11-12, no 4-card major; 2M = 11-12, natural; 2NT = any 13-14 (now ...

Leaping Michaels over a Multi
Indeed! Now corrected.
What should the selectors do?
What is the time interval between the European Championships just concluded and the Bermuda Bowl? A good performance by a given pair in the former should certainly be strongly taken into account in determining selection for the latter. However, the longer the gap between the 2 events, the more discretion ...
Forcing/Not?
I agree with the above comments. With a stronger 5-5 shape, opener may bid fourth suit forcing (3 in this case).
