Strong club, 4c major system
@Steve: The book I meant was "The Italian Blue Team Bridge Book" by Garozzo & Forquet. It is the one that Sergio Polini's link to Amazon points to. "The Blue Club" by Garozzo & Yallouze is less complete but is reasonably good. "Bridge with The Blue Team" by Forguet is not ...
Strong club, 4c major system
Blue Team Club fits those parameters and also includes canape in some sequences that begin with 1, 1 or 1. There is a very good book by Forquet & Garozzo which is probably out of print that give a fair amout of detail on the system. You should ...
Strong club, 4c major system
i do not recommend Schenken although it will less culture shock than Blue Team or Neapolitan since it doesn't include canape.
Questions for people who play 12-14 1NT
The pamphlet, "Kaplan-Sheinwold Updated" by Edgar Kaplan, was published in 1973 by The Bridge World. It has been available on their web-site for several years [url=]Kaplan-Sheinwold Updated[/url]

Questions for people who play 12-14 1NT
@Steve: [b]Anti-deluvian KS had 1♣ - 1N as 8-10 ..,.[/b] 1m-1NT was 5-8 in KS, so opener passed with 15-17 and raised to 2NT with 18-19. Hands with 9-11 and no 4-card major either made an inverted raise or responded in the other minor (1-2 wasn't GF ...
Is Pass Forcing?
If pass is forcing then I can't afford to bid 2 with hands that have lots of playing strength and little, if any, defense.
Bud Hinckley's bidding problem: AJ2 K Q987654 AK
Maybe we should have anticipated this problem and opened 1NT ;).
Francisco Montes de Oca's bidding problem: AKx KQ9xx QJx Jx
I'm not worried about bypassing 3NT; if opener has Kx we could easily belong in 6NT which is a lot safer from his side. Given opener's 4 over 3 the auction over 4 might have gone 1-1 3-4 4-4 ...
Francisco Montes de Oca's bidding problem: AKx KQ9xx QJx Jx
Why didn't I bid 4 instead of 3?
