I play it as fit showing.

Splinter. I don't know anyone that plays it as weak.

Fitjump for me, 4 card support and very good side suit.

Choose between a splinter (ITD) and fit-showing (jump in competition). Perhaps the choice of meaning might depend on whether the opponents are playing ELC.

Help me out on the shorthand:

ITD = ?

ELC = ?

Sorry! ITD = ignore the double; ELC = equal level conversion.

For those who say a fit-showing-jump, what would a single-jump mean :

1S - ( X ) - 3C = ??

To me would be splinter.

I like 3OM to be undefined splinter, and thus 4 level is void splinter, but absent that agreement, 4 is just a routine splinter.

While I use a modified bergen wo competition, I prefer to use fit showing jumps to 3 minor.

I can see pros and cons for splinter or fit-showing for 4, if your partnership feels that 3 level jumps are better used for other purposes.

Thus I think the answer is: it means whatever you and partner agree, and that such agreement has to include a coherent 2 and 3 and 4 level structure.

In a casual expert partnership, I would assume splinter

I normally play both 3 and 4 as fit jumps. 4 says that you want to bid to the four-level; 3 says that you don't.

I normally play both 3 and 4 as fit jumps. 4 says you want to pre-empt to the four level with a club suit on the side (you can double next round with extra offence). 3 either says you don't want to drive the 4-level or has sound limit raise values and will double/bid game next round to show defence.

On reflection, I think I play what Frances said. 4 will always be fairly distributional, so there must be some more balanced hands that bid 3 and then have another go.
