Sure, I wish I were not vulnerable. But if I am not going to open this 1NT, then I need to give up the weak notrump when vul.

A huge difference between bridge and go is that bridge is a game of Incomplete Information.

With the North hand, I would rebid 3.

Do we have to bid on every hand?

Puppet used to be alertable. Pairs frequently forgot they were playing Puppet. The alert or failure to alert tended to wake them up when they forgot. Hence the change.

At matchpoints, for better or worse, I would not be in 5.

I have actually played Precision with at least two people who had never played it before with about 10 minutes discussion. Did not have any system problems. Did almost exactly what Jim has in his post. Used 1NT as 12-14 though.

I voted neither. However, I would have responded 2 instead of 1NT. Then we might reach 6. So if I had to appoint blame, I would give most to North.

I think it depends on how good a hand you require for 2. Playing with my favorite partner, this is a clear pass.

Well, maybe not a formal warning. Especially if she is inexperienced. But someone needs to explain to her why you can’t do this.

The ethics problem is with partner’s 3 bid. She has UI from your alert. She must not use this information. She bid 2 showing s and a minor. You did not ask for the minor and you did not want to play hearts. You wanted to play spades. She has no semblance of a 3 bid. Roll the contract back to 2. And give her a warning about using UI.

Pass. If this occurred in ACBLand and partner failed to announce the transfer then I ABSOLUTELY must pass.

Whatever you bid, you need to plan ahead so your re I’d is in reasonable tempo.

Thanks Jan. I did not think include that as an option.

Is one of the “strong notrumps” supposed to be “weak notrump”?
