BW 2/1 SHAPE and STRENGTH System Summaries
Thanks for your efforts and putting this KISS together. If I prefer a mixed (Shape & Strength) approach, will it be conflicting (or creating major system problems) somewhere? Such as: - Rebid of 2M is the default (can be a so-so 5-card suit). - Reverses (and “high reverses”) don’t show extras. - Rebid ...
BW 2/1: Serious 3NT
This article is a part of BW 2/1 series, but not included in its index currently.
Mastery of the Fundamentals
Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
The Best Bridge Writer Poll
It is not easy (or possible) to select only one, imo. Bird, Kantar, Kelsey, Lawrence, Mollo, Stewart (listed) are among my favorites. Klinger, Larry Cohen, Danny Roth, Marty Bergen (not listed) are also among my favorites. (And lots of others I have not read yet.) Some of them are very ...
Mastery of the Fundamentals
Everything that blocks me to play in an advanced player level (consistently).

What's an Intermediate?
What could be the most effective way to check our mastery of the fundamentals? Not aiming for perfection, but good enough.
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
In December 2017, just after the end of their ban period, there was a mixed team championship in Istanbul. Yılankıran formed a team (probably sponsored, with a turkish player and 2 foreign ladies) and participated, his permanent kibitzer was not there at this time. I was not there, but I ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Thanks for the clarification Rosalind. Perhaps it is time to give them an abbreviation, like YT or SK (sponsor and kibitzer) or something else. (I think abbreviations are better than mentioning them as Germans, Israelis, Italians or Turks.) Yes, Yılankıran and Tigan got a serious reduction in their ban period ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
@ John Adams, I can understand BZ, FN, Drs and FS, but what do you mean by Turks?
