BW 2/1: Splinters Into Opener's Suit
I'm with Gary. Logically, in context of system agreements, I would consider it a splinter. I suppose it could be anything you want if agreed. It is not, I don't believe, a defined sequence in BWS.
Stayman over 2NT?
I would bid 3C and pass any response. If my simulation doesn't support this at matchpoints (which I have yet to do) then something is probably wrong with my software.
Bidding Problem Follow-Up
Perhaps the circumstance is that the original post/thread is somehow embedded in my computer but inaccessible to others since it now appears to have been totally removed.

Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
Gary, yep -- 160,070. I guess what we don't know is how this number is defined and at what specific time. Thanks for following up.
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
"Current Membership is 160,070, apparently down from the 165,000+ of recent years?" Hmmmn. I had been seduced into thinking that membership numbers were holding their own in recent years (about 165,000). Former CEO made a practice of reporting membership numbers in exhibits accompanying board member reports. Current ...
