Either implied suit (game)To play.
Other suit17+ points and game-forcing, no longer promising takeout shape.
No-trumpsNatural and too strong for an immediate no-trump overcall, i.e. 18-20 (ish).
No-trumps from a passed handA 5-5 hand with the wrong suits for either Michaels or the Unusual No-Trump.
New suit from a passed handFlawed takeout double, showing a 5-card suit and a second suit that partner can usually infer from the auction. Doubled to increase the chances of finding a fit with partner, able to correct to long suit if necessary because you've already denied a 17-count by passing earlier.
Jump in no-trumpsNatural, 21+.
Jump to 4NTTwo-Suited Blackwood.
