Proposing a Simple Rule for Good-Bad 2NT
My usual approach with these things is to start with a complete blanket rule, play a lot with it and then add exceptions later. In this case I would start with the rule "2NT is always G/B in competition". Then as situations occur where this clearly makes no sense ...

This depends heavily on the partner. My usual approach is to say nothing at the time and to talk about it after the game, assuming this is with a regular partner. With a pick-up partner there is little point saying anything. I have one partner who is very actively trying ...
Memphis Natl Fast Pairs win taken away by Directors
The line has to be somewhere...
