Rajah club - A complete 1-level major fit tool
We always tell the opponents that we play a short-club short-diamond system as we (they) come in and only 2 pairs so far have gone out to agree on a defense. On this particular deal, the intervention was indeed 3. However, it worked out particularly well, because my partner ...

I’m not sure how the colour coding of the systems work. Is precion a red system. 1 can be void in too. We have never had problems being accepted at any level level of tournaments. There were a few tournaments with strict bidding rules and our system ...

I wish to underline the advantage of T-Walsh and Montreal relay in finding a 5-3 fit from the other side (along with the regular 4-4 fit). I was indeed motivated by them. The greatest advantage of those systems is that it frees up 1 as an opening bid to ...

When we started, the 1 response represented a variety of hands: all unbalanced hands in minors, 5 card major, or bust. 1NT represented the balanced medium strength hand. The opener does not know what it is at this moment and would respond by describing his major holding (by 1M ...

As I mentioned before, I am indeed grateful for all the comments. I really don’t take it in a negative sense. Nor am I expecting it to revolutionize the bidding world. My approach to bidding is that every individual/pair should work out a system that they are comfortable ...

Clearly, I have not mentioned the follow ups for the minors. I sincerely believe that we are not disadvantaged in minors that much. We have bid enough minor part game/game/slam with this. Note that we our 1 bid guarantees at least 7 minor cards. So, the minute ...

Now that you bring up T-Walsh or Montreal relay (which I am more familiar with), you definitely need to consider the fixes with minors there too. Thus, the issues you are raising has nothing to do with the system I just presented, but to do with some of the short-club ...

Thanks
Rajah club - A complete 1-level major fit tool
Thanks for the comments and we had the exactly same arguments with one of my partners (who has 30 years more experience than me). Clearly not all details were presented in the above space and it has created some confusion. One main thing he suggested and we follow systematically is ...
Rajah club - A complete 1-level major fit tool
Do you have any more details of the Midmac. I am curious to know how they handled 5 cards major with the responder against a opener showing a 4 card major. As you will see, under interference, there is lot more information exchange that just 4 card major. I will ...
