Depends on system. 2H bid for me also.

“The subject is MOTBs and that uses overcall hands as a pre-emptive opening bid.” As these 2 things are totally different your comment is meaningless.

Avon is not talking about overcalls. The last transfer incarnation of Moscito had 1D = S and 1S = S as openings. This had nothing to do with pre emption, but rather to allow room for relays. eg 1D - 1H = relay and now 1S = both Majors.

That is what I mean, Ian. Your wife and your student would not be surprised to see the strength of this 1 bid, however most other players would find it too strong.

This hand might not be a surprise for David or Ian's partner.I think the way to approach this problem is to ask if you bid one heart opposite a good pick up partner, would that partner expect this? I guarantee that 90 percent of good pick ups would be very surprised to see this hand.

This hand is FAR too good for 1. To say there is nothing wrong with 1 is really a “way out there” comment.

If 3 agrees , what on earth is North doing bidding 4?

“well above average.” Talk about damning with faint praise. The “Three Ws” were great players.

You could make a case for anything, but why would you? I agree with Richard and David.

What about the Austrian town of “Fucking”? Seriously, I have even driven through it.

“BBO is fantastic. Awesome.” It used to be. I agree with Cornelia's post above. The current version is awful.

Use English spelling rather than American and Australian slang and you will be fine. I always get highly amused when Americans root for their team.

“1♣ - 1♥ (where 1♥ shows an unbalanced hand with 4+Spades would be a prototypical example)

In this case, 1♠ would be a relay
Bids from 1N on up are relay breaks”

We used the relay breaks quite differently. For example
"1♣ - 1♥ 1NT+ actually showed a heart suit and a minimum 1C opener and went into shape showing. That way you could continue relaying with a good hand or just bid an appropriate game. We found this far more effective.

We play 4 as Michaels and 4 as clubs and a Major.

How can you ask for a stopper if the next hand raises or if partner bids 3M over your double?
