We bid 1-1N;2 with those hands. Responder will not have 4 in unless strong enough to invite with 1-1N;2-2;2-2. After 1-1 we play Zirconia with 1N either 4 in or strong like the Gazzilli 2.

My line is 14+ hcp and 3+ QTs. N has psyched of course but that's okay.

Good enough for 2, but I‘m glad that I can bid 1N (raptor aka polish nt) with my regular partner.
As for your question, in my book X is t/o of as others have mentioned.

3 is asking for a penalty double, X is complying.

If openers 1M-range is 11-15 responder needs 12-13 to continue with 2N and a game force needs 14+.

At least P/S have admitted that they are wrong. W/E show a complete lack of understanding that they acted unethical and unlawful. Unfortunately they had better lawyers then did DBV and a judge who probably doesn‘t even know what bridge is. I‘m afraid that there is not much that DBV can do about it in general. I hope that what can be done will be done: The German Bridge Trophy has become an invitational tournament and they simply weren‘t invited. In another tournament there were some procedural penalties which dropped them from the top class after which they withdraw voluntarily.

Sorry, somehow I thought B was 1♥ - 1♠ - 2♦ - 3♣ - 3♦ - 3♠.

Craig, I agree that it is not necessary to jump to show the strong variant, but that doesn‘t mean you‘re not allowed to jump. The jump emphasizes suit quality.

Assuming EW play Roth-Stone you cannot blame W for passing in 1st. 2 says I wouldn‘t have opened in 1st/2nd. Pass and pull is strong.

With one sometime partner I play WJ2000. 1-2;3-? I‘d expect that one can insist upon responders suit with 4. As opener I‘d then bid 6. Not very scientific, but I can't imagine stopping below slam.

Can‘t find my choice: with a pick-up partner I play whatever s/he wants, with my regular partner I play Woolsey always. Strength requirements and suit quality vary of course, but these are also vulnerability dependent.
