What do you play at trick three? The rest of the story
Deleted (misread) with apologies
2 parter
Michael R: LOL ..... thank you for stating my case so effectively .... after all, even you will find it a tall task to successfully reconcile your two following statements: (A) "(...) the PRESUMPTION should be that 3 says nothing about values" (emphasis mine) (B) "(...) I don't see how my conclusion ...
2 parter
Michael R: "If 2N is defined as a scramble, then 3 shows zero values." In the absence of OP elaborating on his partnership's agreed distinction (usually about strength) if any between (A) 3 directly over X versus (B) scrambling 2N followed by a 3 correction, your ...

Your call
RR - multiple: see my remarks upthread
Your call
RR, The only argument in favour of a 4 in lieu of 5 rebid by the 2NT overcaller is uncertainty (aka lack of trust?) over the intended meaning of the 3 advance. I have already argued downthread that anything other than the "what's in front of ...
Your call
RR - certainly Advancer can have your example hand IF his partnership style precludes a 1st/2nd seat preempt without hand pattern and value location (FWIW, I confess that I subscribe to such a style, and so facing myself the example you lay out would be a possibility). Having said that ...
Your call
RR - my remarks were predicated on what I believed to be a near certainty that a passed hand 3 advance must be based on support and adequate values - yet the remarks of the preponderance of posters to date suggest that in holding so I am in a distinct ...
