Oops. You are right!

Yes, I don't doubt that BWS2017 states what you say Paul. It's just that's not what we play (and what the two references state) and the original post was intended to ask about it as we play it. I'll amend the post to state that the ...

To the 4 bidders -- do you expect your partner to go on to explore slam with the minimum opening hand and five spades he promised? Do you feel the posted hand is not strong enough to explore slam opposite that minimum?

Jordan, my note about the "majority NYC style" was in response to your comment "I thought everyone played this in 2/1," which comment appeared to not be oriented towards BWS. I have no idea what BWS meant about "invitational" but I can't imagine it's invitational to game ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: Q5 AKJ8653 KT4 6
Yes, 3 is invitational.

The large majority of players in NYC (that is where you and I both live, I see) play Bergen raises.
David Parsons's bidding problem: J7 Q2 AKT762 J98
I would think that the BWS description is that of a "fit-showing jump," indicating a game invitational hand, with at least a three-card fit, and five+ diamonds. Some might play that such a jump would require four hearts. Does anyone know the "number" of cards for the major-suit support ...

Richard, that "unlikely to exceed 40%" comment is a good one, and something I should have considered. Thanks!
