When explaining to my students what they should respond to a preemptive type bid (Weak Two Bid, Preempt, Michaels, Unusual 2NT), I tell them...

“You should start with this mindset. If you have a good fit, think, “I wonder how high I should bid”. If you do not have a fit, think, “I bet I should pass”. Beginning to think from that stance will often lead you to making a good decision in the bidding.”
