Control-Showing Responses to Strong 2!c Openings: General Thoughts?
I get what you mean, Adam. So just curious—do you always bid 2 in response regardless? Or what?
Control-Showing Responses to Strong 2!c Openings: General Thoughts?

I assume some of the abstentions are due to not liking how I bid this hand. Apologies, but given the situation, what would you do?
Christopher Donnelly's bidding problem: J5 5 --- AKQJ987653
To bid what?
Emanuel Evacic's bidding problem: KJ AJ975 86 T543
Right. 5 would take up bidding space, too. ;-) I’m being cheeky but you get my point. :)
