LTC 2!D bid
> "Tournament hands tend to favor this bidding method as they are pre-dealt to have interesting features." Where did you get that idea from? It's illegal to deal anything but random-deals in tournament-play.
1NT defence
> I would expect Partner to continue with the ♠T upon gaining the lead. Why? From his viewpoint, u cud have AKx and he has JTx.

> "We found that we almost never needed a negative double." You never need a neg-X after 1M-(2m) ? That sounds questionable...
Transfers after intervention
We recently started playing transfers after opps' takeout-double, and also after their tangent-bid overcall. Examples: 1D-(X)- XX = 4+hearts. -1H = 4+spades. -1S = Denies 4card M.

Putting together a Strong Club (Precision) - any insights into why and how these issues matter?
Of course, you can always explore it, but if it turns out there is no fit, (say opener is 4-1-3-5 and responder 2-4-4-3 or similar) where are you going? You often end up scrambling into a lousy higher partial than the majority, who open 1, and then play in ...
Putting together a Strong Club (Precision) - any insights into why and how these issues matter?
> 5. 2♣ opening bids - including the 4 card major or not No, you don't want 4card majors in 2. Esp at matchpoints, it's downright terrible. Unless responder has GF values, it's an insoluble dilemma whether to explore 4-4 major fit or not. And it keeps coming ...
