Sad but true. A question for David C, How many years do we have to protect the novices?

Responder uses checkback Stayman after 1NT. We show a 4 card major before 3 card support if responder bid a major.

Five of six directors asked in the last six months say legal and no alert. That along with all the discussion above shows the
ambiguity that exists.

Distribution has always been 3325. Point count tops out at 7.
3 partners have made this bid about 5 times in the last 15 years.

It is my opinion that since p p 1 p 1 results in a bid that could be the final contract, bidding a 3 card suit here is legal,

Is it improper to break tempo when your right hand opponent leads from the wrong hand for the purpose of letting partner make the decision to accept the lead?

6 I accept your slam try. I have a great 1 opener. I know little about hearts and nothing about clubs. Partner pick 6 or 7.

I would open 2. 2 requests 2. Then bid 2NT. The hand is too strong for 2, 2, 2NT. Hopefully the room over 2NT gives the partnership room to get to the proper contract.

First, what does the convention card say? Are systems on? Is Stayman checked? It is for the majors but does not promise both. Second, East can count. Partner can not have much, thus all pass says is 2 is an ok place to play. I do not have a 4 card major.

Either 2 or 4 never 3. He said if u like your hand bid 4. Works sometime.

I do not see all the comments attempting to explain what the bidding means as relevant to the post. What is important is what did it mean to the pair bidding it. I have no where near the expertise at this level but would have a definite purpose to this set of bids with my partnerships. Hearing no agreement from any expert pair does not suffice and is not believable.

If 2 is a game force this bid does not overstate my values except for club length. I know we will get to 4s. If partner shows minimum it should be easy to sign off at 4. If he has extras he has lots of room to show them in.

Reversing with 2 allows for a slow down bid of 2. Any other bid by responder is forcing. After hearing 2. a 3jump says bid four with the bestter bad hand.

We use them against weak two bids and in some sequences where you hope partner knows you are competing but may not have a strong hand.

1 instead of 2 followed by 6 if bidding space is cramped. Only confusion is missing 7.

2NT asks partner to bid 3C which can be passed. If partner feels he is to strong to be passed he chooses another bid. 3C direct is a strong bid. Partner needs to be very weak to pass. 3C is a club suit when bid directly. These are bids for North.

BIT's are a problem. Arguments here suggest a bit at greater than 3 seconds to a minute. For me thinking through all that is happening is thus going to create a BIT. There are questions to consider that require time. Take that time away from me and I am not playing bridge but I am trying to be legal. This makes me wonder what legal is? I have watched many hands played on BBO when a player takes a lot of time to proceed. Like time enough to go to the bathroom or get a glass of wine, get the idea? There are so many bad examples set that one knows why people have strong opinions about tempo of play. To me what counts is a partner that does not take advantage of a BIT but has his own reason for his action. Amen

I have recently switched from a one bid on this type of hand to a 2 bid. I like limiting my point count immediately as many of these hands do not have many defensive tricks. I also think it depends on how partner can investigate your 2 bid. Ogust would be very helpful in describing this hand.

Thanks for the comments. I have played a range described as any 4-5 hand that is not strong enough to reverse with when asked. This puts the range at 10- 17. Any comments?
