We play “system on” after 1 - (1/), except for dbl, which is transfer. In our system 1NT would show 14-16 balanced with lack of a M stopper or GF hand with clubs

It depends on the agreement how aggressive 2 can be in this situation …

Could pass over 2 not have been a “trap pass” ?

Apologies if I missed such iniciative, but does this situation not call for the pro community, to organise in some kind of an union? Then you could give guidelines to all others and those guidelines could not be ignored by event organizers.

As for Sabine's stand point - I think it is better than not participating at all. My partner and I attended the Venice tournament, where FF appeared and I can tell you that almost nobody noticed, that the Harris team members refused to play. If they would just refuse to play against FF and his partner, that would be much more “public” imo. I am sure also many amateur pairs would follow.

I prefer 3 instead of 2. We play it as 4+ card fit, 9+ pts.

We play T-Walsh and have accepted the fact, that we often can't find optimal diamond part score contract. It is a negative side of the system. We would bid 1NT with 1st hand and 2 with the 2nd.

We play supp X/XX, but not compulsory. We follow these rules:
Supp X/XX apply when the opening bid was 1 level, responder bids 1M, RHO bids below 2M. Even if these conditions are met, opener does NOT bid supp X/XX if:
- RHO bid 1NT
- another bid by opener would better describe the hand
- opener has defensive hand (points in Opp's suits, lack of A and K)
- opener can't risk responder's bids beyond 2NT

Any agreement on “pass” and “rdbl” instead of 2?
