Bidding without Lebensohl
Your daughter is 16? Ugh. I remember her when she was five.
Remembering My Dad
You were born in the convention center where many tournaments were held? No wonder you went on to become a pro player.
UDCA and Smith
At any rate, my main point is that we needed at least one more poll option.
UDCA and Smith
I play UDCA and Smith Echo. I play Smith Echo the way Smith originally suggested: opening leader plays high-low to say that she doesn't want her suit returned (that's upside-down, right?) and third hand plays high-low to say that she has something good in the suit: an honor ...

I followed the link, and found that in fact he is on it.
Definition of double, if it is not a support double?
I play a weak NT (12-14, although Joe Quinn thinks my partner and I should announce 11+-14), and one thing I've invented is to use X for 15+ balanced with or without a stop. That frees up 2NT to show a hand that wanted to rebid 3m (16-18 ...
