Easier than Ten
Hi Kit What do you use non-step relays for after an initial positive response (e.g. in the auction above, what would 2 and higher bids have shown)? I've tried lots of alternatives over the past 40 years but have yet to find one (or more) that is ...
BBO Dealer scripts
Re Richard and Paul on identifiers: I've obviously made some other syntactic error when I've tried using scripts with identifiers. Thanks for alerting me to this. Will make future writing of scripts easier!
BBO Dealer scripts
(I'm not a programmer so my terminology may be inaccurate . . . ) Don't try including anything other than the expression that specifies your chosen constraints. Instructions such as "condition", "action", "print" etc are not recognised by BBO. Nor are identifiers such as "Burn". Nor are comments, which in Dealer are ...
Book recommendation please (or other material)

Strong clubs and unnecessary information, Part One: Improving Meck-Lite
We played a Meckwell-type structure: 1 = 5+S or 11+BAL 1 = 5+H 1NT = 5+D 2 = 5+C 2 = 8-10 BAL 2M/2N = GF three-suiters 3+ = transfers to 5-7HCP semi-solid 7-card suit or GF solid 7-card suit After 1-1-1 1N ...
Does Meckwell ever sleep on the couch?
Bidding 2 instead of 1NT would be a gross error. If David had done so then supported spades (imagine Annie with length in clubs or diamonds) she would have thought Qx of hearts a great holding, making David's suit a source of tricks, while a small singleton would ...
What's in a Name?
"Bridge, think twice" is an excellent suggestion.
