What hand type is 2!d?
For what it's worth, Mike Lawrence appears to go with #1. On an auction identical to Phil's (through opener's 2nd round pass), he suggests bidding 2 with A82 7 QJ94 AQT74 and says it shouldn't promise a big hand. (_Takeout Doubles_, p. 114)
Mean .vs. Geomean
As an illustration: Meckwell (about 160,000 mps) and 4 I/N pairs (say 100 each). Mean: (160,000 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 100)/5 = 32,080 Geometric mean: (160,000 x 100 x 100 x 100 x 100) ^ (1/5) = about 437

Perhaps when Monaco has world-class universities that will attract top young talent for non-bridge reasons? It seems like this is something the US should be proud of. More generally, US bridge has certainly been helped by the Rosenbergs, Wolperts, Pepsi, to name just a few.
Michael Seamon Junior USBC Begins Today
2 members of that team have been among China's most talented young bridge players, equivalent to the US' top home-grown talent. No fluke here; more like a revelation.
A Great Read
3 of the 6 members of the Wei team finished 4th in Lyon in 2017 in the U26 category, losing to the winning US team in the semifinals (with 4/6 common members with the Kaplan team here). 1 of the members finished 2nd in Salsomaggiore in 2016 in the ...
