comment In Bridge, what are “proper” responses to a “strong” 2 club bid?
Let's say my hand is (s) AKJxxx (h)AQx (d) Ax (c) Ax (basically a "minimum" for 2c. Even if my partner has Kxxxx of hearts, we're probably better off in my suit than his, unless he DOESN'T have xx or better in spades. And if his Kxxxx or even Kxxxxx is opposite my two weaker suits, we're better off in two spades.

@KarlKnechtel:The BASIC requirement is at least 6 cards and 22 points (as I understand it). This can be modified to 5 cards and 25 HCPs, or 7 cards and 19 HCPs (trading potential "trumps" for HCPs at the ratio of 1 to 3).

What do you play/recommend?

OK, then following your suggestion, ANY bid other than 2d shows 9+ points, right? Are you worried about partner bidding "your" suit and exposing your hand? Or is 31 HCPs and 11 trumps a "dream" situation, regardless?

comment Should I Use A “Negative Double” Over a Possible “Short Club” Bid And Overcall in Bridge?
+1 for providing probability distributions. Now I can estimate the chances of getting a 3- or 4-card club suit from partner, times the likely "penalties," to compare a raise to 2C with other alternatives.
