Your question depends strongly on partnership agreements about 2C openings and followups. Evaluation as the weaker hand in the auction depends strongly on the types of hands partner might have. A reasonably common 2C agreement in the US follows these lines: 2C shows most hands with 22+ HCP, and shapely hands with 8.5+ top tricks (though e.g. AKQJxxxxx x x ...

I find only 2 disadvantages of precision. Opponents frequently interfere & sometimes psych with the only the desire to interfere.

Finding a Precision partner even in a very large club is a challenge. Most ...
