What logical alternative do you choose?
What logical alternative, if any, is unLawful?
A director (or failing that a committee) is quite likely to allow 3N but a
masochistic player would still choose the law-abiding 3D. You make a limit 2N
bid, giving partner the choice between 2N and 3N. He makes the final decision
even if it is a peculiar 3D. Without the UI, this could be a weak correction to
what partner deems a safer contract.
Again, the peer-sample must be restricted to those players who, over partner's
one notrump opener, would invite with 2N rather than commit with 3N.
