I don‘t understand Drury
I'm with David. I wish it were possible just to use 2 as Drury but the responses really don't work well. Maybe playing 2 Drury over a 1 opener would work but memory strain...
John Manning: Statistician, Bridge movement theorist
Re the intro; an example of a mirror movement?
I don‘t understand Drury
Use passed hand 2NT as 4-card raise with a singleton and jumps to four-level as voids. If you have a drury hand where you weren't going to pass 2M by opener you might as well paint the picture at once and not miss your slams.
Opinion on a director's ruling.
Mike. Before comment is possible it would be helpful to know what calls if any were alerted during the auction and what the E/W agreements were. I assume no tempo issues. Could you also comment on whether E/W were 1) experts 2) a regular partnership And 3) Had ...

Lall and Dwyer Lead Platinum Pairs
Actually Mike Roberts (who was TD) looked at the deal because the result was somewhat unusual but not truly absurd. There WERE ways for the opponents (West not East admittedly) to reach 1NT and while making 150 was odd it wasn't completely impossible. Our auction was 1-P-1-P-1NT ...
Lall and Dwyer Lead Platinum Pairs
1NT by North entered as by East. that was not an impossible result alas; unlikely but not much more unlikely than my +150.
