The more moral game
“Don’t call a man honest just because he had no opportunity to steal” - Yiddish proverb There are way more opportunities to cheat at cards than at chess, so fewer opportunities for chess players with low ethical standards to reveal themselves.

What does this 1NT rebid show?
If you play support doubles, and that the rebid shows 12-14 aren’t you left with an occasional 3244 18-19 point hand with no good rebid? At least if you play the rebid shows 18-19 you can rebid it even without a stopper as there is plenty of room to ...
