Furthermore, partner can have as many as 17 points on this auction. Passing is too unilateral, 2 keeps the bidding open.

It could, depends on your agreements about how much partner needs for 3. If game is not going to be on, pass is not unreasonable.

AKxxx AKxxx Kx x: is this a jumpshift in your methods? Itís not, in mine, but give me the major suit 10ís and Iím tempted.

AKxxxx AKxx Kx x. Same issue.

So 2S is mandatory at imps, in order to allow partner another call. Heck, Iíve seen hands where his next bid, over 2S, is 3C. Not that Iím expecting that, lol. But AJxxx AKxx x KQx? How do you think that hand should be bid?

Almost, I could hardly criticize partner if did JS and of course I have a great hand if he does.
