Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
My default-bid is 2, unless I have a really lousy suit, or perhaps quacks in the side-suits. But I particularly like 2 when I have really good spot-cards, ideally something like QT98x or better.

Suit handling question

Is that acbl rule? Never heard of it here.
What do you play against multi 2!D?
@Ian I'm talking abt the 2 opener's tempo, not the next player. It's important that you open 2 in the same tempo when you have a weak-2, as when you have, say, a 25+NT or a GF -hand, if your pd has a habit ...

What do you play against multi 2!D?
Depends on whether 2 also contains a strong option (=forcing) or not (=non-forcing).
What do you play against multi 2!D?
Yeah, as I wrote above, if 2 has no strong option and is non-forcing, it is a different animal. Much trickier to defend against. Most players in my area, though, seem to include either a strong NT-range or Acol-2 or other strong option in 2 Multi. So ...
What do you play against multi 2!D?
On a related note, when started to play Multi-2 longtime ago, we used the approach, that if they overcalled in any suit it was penalty-X. Then, on some hand, I had an impossible decision with a disastrous result, because LHO overcalled pd's 2 with 3M, and it ...
