No Drury in 4th seat?
Also, "Tips on Bidding", which is as recent as 2015, and Lawrence is still recommending Drury after 4th seat openings there. IOW, your partner would appear to be wrong.

How light can your 1M responses to 1D be?
I would like to see a companion poll with the pointed suits reversed. Does more of a misfit increase or decrease the threshold for responding?
