What is the weaker call?
If 3M is the weakest call, then the pass could be used to show a maximum minimum (invitational opposite a maximum) and keep partner from bidding game with extra strength over the 3M signoff.
No Drury in 4th seat?
What is the best meaning for the double of a cue bid?
In this hypercompetitive environment I think it is more important to show a hand that has some values willing to compete to the 3 level versus the 3 preemptive raise. Now opener will be better placed to bid on or double. The defensive hands without a fit can double ...
Scrambling or GOSH
If you play equal level conversion, the cheapest new suit bid would be a scramble (here 2) and other bids are GOSH. To show a GOSH in the cheapest suit you must jump (if your suit here was spades you would have to jump to 3S, the downside of ...
Opening 10 HCP 6m331 hands playing Matchpoints
I open 1m with both (7 losers, 2 quick tricks, rebid, lead director, major suit support with a singleton). So what's not to like!?
No Drury in 4th seat?
I play a different form of Drury by a passed hand. 2 show 4+ trumps and ANY strength. 2 shows a limit raise with 3 trumps and 2M shows a single raise with only 3 trumps. If opener has no game interest opposite any limit raise, he closes ...

Problems with Lebensohl
Using Larry's example auction but playing Lipensohl, partner would also bid 3D as a transfer with an invitational or stronger hand while denying a spade stop. With a minimum, opener would bid 3H. Responder would pass with a minimum, but with a stronger hand, he could rebid 3S to ...
Problems with Lebensohl
Regarding stoppers, it is true that you can find stoppers later with a 3S ask. However, what do you do over a 2H overcall after a 3H transfer and partner bids 3S. There is no room for a stopper ask. Lipensohl starts with an over transfer to 3N showing game ...
Problems with Lebensohl
some play a double is penalty. If played as negative, the double would work
