What is a Bloomer?
Another "Bluhmer": after low level trump agreement next bid is shortness (or no shortness). Then a raise of the short suit is "no wasted values" but else normal strength in actual context. You will find some super fits this way.
2H as weak both majors (2 good examples!)
Maybe you would be better off increasing strenght to 8-11.
Polish Club question
I like 5 or 6s plus 4Ms to be the ONLY alternative for a 2 opening. I know this goes against Meckwell and others but have you considered the advantages in constructive bidding? I.e. light reverses OK now, quick definition of exact distribution, better resistance versus interference ...
ofc Gazzilli 2 and not 2nt be used
Bidding 2/1 in SAYC, K-S or French style bidding systems with light opening bids
I skip Bergen and use 3m as invitational with a decent suit
Why play a Big !C or Precision?
Make a thorough study of Bill Jacobs book "Fantunes Reveaked" and consider the advantages of transfer bids, one of a suit forcing, weak no trump, unbalanced diamonds etc. Surely most of this is simple to apply in a 2/1 system and it is great fun to play!
The Price of Information
Play weak Nt and 1 from 15+ with transfer bids. Then you can arrange to conceal the strong hand and have a system to show the responder´s hand. Also to split ranges of the opener´s hand. (15-18, 19-21 and 22+). Why tell opposition about the declarer´s ...
A new (?) idea for 2N
Agree with Phil 1NT - 2NT as a major 2-suiter with plenty of playing tricks. No misch-masch with double meanings like Crash and similar.
Jacoby 2NT, my way
I am not in agreement at all. To strip opener´s hand and later have him as declarer cannot be right. Must be better to strip the probable dummy instead. I suggest 2NT to be a limited hand say 6-8 unbalanced and 3-fit or 9-11 balanced 4-fit or 9-11 pattern ...
