David Parsons's bidding problem: AQT K A973 KQ762
Paul, my interpretation of your BW quote is different -- I'd say that 2 or 2 were forcing...only "the next level of opener's suit (2)" or "opener's raise of responder's () suit is nonforcing."

Why not, Ben?
David Parsons's bidding problem: AK93 T8 JT86 754

After bidding 2 here, what do you follow up with when LHO bids 4 and partner passes?
Sandwich Cue-bid of Opener by Unpassed Hand
That's not actually the Bridge World Standard. BWS goes with the 20% who voted that a cuebid of opener's suit is natural over a 1/1 auction, but two-suited over a 2/1 auction. Seems harder to remember than your way, Ben, which is what I play.
Sandwich Cue-bid of Opener by Unpassed Hand
It is interesting that Bridge World Standard indicates that BOTH 2 and 2NT are for the other two suits in this auction. Perhaps 2 is for when you'd like partner to bid spades with equal suits and 2NT is for when you'd like partner to bid ...
