Improve my analysis!
Given partner has requested a switch I'm ruling out holdings like Qxxx or QTx with partner. I don't think that is enough to request a switch. Given partner has requested a switch one lead will be enough. Partner needs at least ATx. I suppose it does give up ...
Multi Opening Two-Bids
My point is that a lot of defenses to a multi 2 rely somewhat on being able to pass initially with some class of hands that might otherwise want to bid. To make those defenses less effective you should maximise the chance partner passes, so it is more effective ...
Multi Opening Two-Bids
I play a trash multi 2 (bad weak two in either major only) and normal weak twos in the majors. The idea being to maximise the chances that partner can just pass the 2 bid.

Stuart King's bidding problem: QJ87 72 T72 AJ93
As I expected. My partner and I passed out 3 and got a terrible core as the room was playing in spades somehow... https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-yj4vn9zxx2/
Play this hand
Indeed. Even more reason to drive out the before using the entry to dummy, if you are playing for that rather than the finesse.

I agree completely Alan. The chapters on takeout doubles are damning, and in my opinion removes all reasonable doubt. But that said, I have found that the case is oversold in other areas.
