I don't think you fully understand the Polish 1NT overcall, or Raptor as you call it.

Much more sensible to play 2 as a game force relay.

It is much harder to accuse teammates and much easier to point the finger at those in other teams. Do you know of the 3 wise Monkeys - hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil, but speak when it affects you.

Hamish, I didnt say it was a suggestion to play;I said it asked a question and does not show strength.

It is clear that neither John nor Marty understand what a psyche is. We had a similar discussion a long time ago when talking about 3x 3nt.This is also not a psyche, just a suggestion to play here at this stage of the auction. Similarly 2x 2nt asks about the 2x bid. If your lack of experience leads you to think that 2nt shows strength, that is your problem.

If you had a 2nt overcall of 2S, I am very curious why you did not overcall. It seems you committed felo de se. Btw it clearly is not a psyche, just as 3?3nt on a fit and nothing is not a psyche. P

What is good for one is good for all. Can you honestly say you knew nothing like the 3 wise monkeys? To act after the fact is easy.

Christopher that is an extremely nasty comment. You must be unbelievably naive if you think the teammates did not know.

Why is this a discussion for a different thread? The principles are similar.

I find that difficult to believe Nedju. So many people say there were rumours and innuendos about F-N. No doubt these reached the teammates ears. It is very easy to create revisionist history.

To be totally consistent, the boycott should also extend to the former teammates of F-N. It seems difficult to believe that the teammates were not aware of what was going on after playing together for years. Let us see how honourably people act.

How can the opponents spring something for which you are not prepared? Do you not ask what system they play when you sit down or ask to see their system card? If you don't more fool you.

Ok electricity is back on. Not really on topic, but a funny story nevertheless. The last rd of the open pairs and we played Seamus and??. Can't remember but a top player nevertheless. They were in contention and David King and I were running about 7th. I picked up a big hand and David showed a 2 suiter. After bout 6 relays I noticed a crowd gathering around the table. So we hit 10 relays ad David finally showed a vital jxx in his 3 card suit. That dded up to 13 tricks and I claimed on the lead. Seamus thre down his cards and said we should not be able to play this in a pairs event. It knicked Seamus to 5th and we finished 4th. After we put the cards back Burgess, who had been watching, said why do you use 2H to show lower suit is longer? I recocnised him and said “That is how M-B do it”. He shook his head and walked away.
