Richard: Do you think that Larry's method meets the requirement for events in England held under EBU rules? On page 27 of the current EBU Blue Book ( it says: 7F3 Dual meaning signals Dual meaning signals (when following suit ...
Can you bid this safely to 3NT?
John: That was what I usually did - bid to 3NT anyway. Looking at my results, I had come to the conclusion I was being too agressive in the bidding and that I would do better to tone it down. My results have improved but maybe I have swung to far ...
Can you bid this safely to 3NT?

David: Yes. My partner won't play any form of Drury.
