A Gazzilli question
F1N and Gazilli are not a very good combination IMHO, essentially because you will too often have to guess which part score to play. But assuming you do play the combination, 1M 1N//2 3M: 3card limit raise 1M 1N//2 2//2M 3M: top honor doubleton ...

Two jacks in a 2533 is not what people generally understand as a weak 2 bid, that can include a 5-card suit. If this is a normal partnership bid, the explanations should contain more body, such as: very weak hands are possible. You will probably not get a score adjustment ...
