Right, I forgot about the 21-23 case.

That only loses when you have a non-invitational hand with a long minor of your own, probably not a frequent holding.

At the very least I won't defend 1X. My next bid will be 6 unless something strange happens. (Some might say that my 2 bid qualifies as something strange :) )

I would tend to pass 1NT with a minimum 4144 but might bid again with 4054 and min.

Depends on whether this is an opener for your partnership. It isn't for mine but that doesn't matter.

3, so I don't forget what to lead.

Play some other method over weak NT. It may well be your hand and you have no idea where to play or how high. Your opponents are on much more solid ground than you.

4, make it difficult for opps to come in while right-siding hearts for us.

There was no mention of Bergen or any other preemptive jump raises of opening 1M bid. Anyway, playing Bergen I would probably use mixed raise as I think this is slightly too good for a preemptive raise.

“S were on my left, not on my right
Only if you sit with your back to the table. That would maybe explain quite a lot, though.”

In the lead so far for best comment of the year! Bev and I are still laughing.

“Good” is just Kentucky for, well, GOOD.

Double implies cards in diamonds as well as spades and clubs, and partner may decide to leave it in since he probably has hearts. Also, they have not found a fit and the bidding may not be over if I pass.

Partner should take a preference with 3+ in either, or both, suit(s) so anything you run to will be just as bad.

Doesn't everyone? It comes up all the time.

Marshall, lamenting here on BW may prepare us to bid in tempo when it counts. Just like playing double dummy hands seems stupid at first but helps us to recognize situations at the table.

Don't get in a battle of obscure words with Marshall.
