Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Crunch Time
This may be a long shot but ... since so many world class players are staying away from Turkey, is it too late to organise a counter tournament in the US on the same dates? I would have thought that would send a very powerful message and nobody would have to ...
2!C as 5-card Major Stayman

Wrong Alert of a Bid
Ed, Would you say that it would be obvious that the bidding had gone off the rails if I had alerted 3 and then had to explain 3 was Puppet Stayman? A Big Thank You for all your very helpful comments - very much appreciated! You can see that ...
