Beating the world champions in the New England Knockouts.

Light takeouts. A direct 1NT overcall is an 8-13 HCP takeout with two or three spades. A direct cue-bid over 1C, 1D, or 1H is an 8-13 HCP takeout with four or five spades. Double is 14+ HCP and can be offshape.

When you post hands in here, you have to expect them to get picked apart regardless of your intent.
Is there an expert standard here?
Bergen raises are based on the LOTT, which is believed to be right more often than not so it's reasonable to play that a four-card constructive raise is forcing to 3M unless one of us wants to double them. You are talking about a constructive raise, right? In this ...
College Spirit
Don't look to the membership for help. You have a marketing staff. Use it wisely. Start by getting rid of Tricks of the Trade and any other useless money sinks and personnel that can't think beyond preaching to the choir. Use the money you save to: 1. Identify ...
