Richard Granville's bidding problem: Q 7532 4 AKT8743
In my regular partnerships, an opening 2nt is a transfer to 3; 3nt would be a transfer to 4.
Best defense against Big Club?
MAR: "Whatever your strong 1NT defense is, it is likely to work against strong 1 (or 1)" This is exactly what I do with my two main partners using MultiLandy (when we have any reasonable excuse) to get the bidding up to at least the 2-level as soon ...

Wrong Alert of a Bid

Double dummy, EW can make 4NT or 5. Two pairs were in 3NT, one just making and the other +2. Three pairs were in 5, one just making and the other two were down 1. Another pair was in 4 making +1.
Wrong Alert of a Bid
Yu, While I didn't alert my partner's 3 (I was somewhat shocked!), in our system it is Puppet Stayman. My 3NT bid was in even tempo and was the right reply.
