comment Should “100 or 150 honors” allow you to open light?
@PieterGeerkens: The point of the question (as revised), is "Do the honors (including 1 T) signal that the holding is stronger than its nominal value? (That is, "10" is really worth 11?) In your other example, you convinced me that your "11 hcp" holding with tens and nines was actually worth 12.

comment If you are fourth seat after a third seat raise, can you make a takeout double with “intermediate” values?
@PieterGeerkens: I did say 12 with 4-4-4-1. The "intermediates" work well with the J's so I would evaluate the hand as 12. Replace the T and two 9s with lower cards and I would NOT double with that hand in second seat because those intermediates are probably on the other side.

comment Are there viable alternatives to a “three level pre-empt” with a good seven card suit?
Yes, vulnerability is an important factor, more, perhaps, than I suspected.

@PieterGeerkens: You mean xxx-xx-x "or better" in the side suits, right? Because you'd be happy with xxx-xxx-0 or xxxx-x-x?
