Finding low HCP slams using 2/1 trump Asking Bids
Henry: Good point. In hand 1 if you had the K of hearts rather than the K of spades, would you still splinter? S-Axxxx H-K D-KJ C-Axxx 15 S-QJxx H-xxx D-AQ C-Kxxx 12 = 27

I like this a lot, but doesn't tell me what suit is short. I'll give some thought to it. Thanks for your input.

Marty I think you miss the point. Many hands having 25 or more HCP can make a slam. The Average is 28. But most people don’t look for these slams because the odds of making a slam with 25 or 26 are negative and the current methods require risking ...

When the Opener is able to limit his hand and generally describe his shape who else should be Captain other than the Responder, certainly the responder knows much more about the Opener than vice versa, seems to me that is the primary value of Big Club.

Thanks for your input. I too, use Precision Today as a primary resource. I don't like the way they handle the TABs and CABS to sequential takes too much bidding space. Using 2D as a trigger helps us conserve space and 3NT as Control asking insures that we will ...
