Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do you open this hand in 1st seat Love All at IMPs?
Out of interest, how has the 5-5 shape usually brought about the bad result when the 5431 hasn't?
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: K64 A6 KQ52 K832
I like double as "optional" (or whatever terminology you prefer) and 3 as mandating p to bid 3N with a stop (something like this hand but with the A elsewhere).

Well, in practice when the players do agree a draw, it is an extremely likely result. Perhaps they have seen a repetition or a simplification to a drawn endgame. Or a draw might be offered when there is no real play in the position. There are usually time increments so ...

David, I would say that agreeing a draw where it is clear to both players that a draw is the only likely result is the same principle as a resignation where it is clear to the resigning player that they are going to lose. Although I take your point.
1!S X 2!S X - Minors or can it have hearts?
Any two suits (could be 4-4) with 2N as leb is very good imo
