I live in Hua Hin on the Gulf of Thailand. The only real bridge I play is when a bridge player visits, otherwise it is with randoms on bbo. Don't underrate that, it is a great way to check out theories, albeit unilaterally. I open all tens, unilaterally, and it is rarely wrong. Never wrong when done bilaterally. I do not make a negative double on hands below game-going strength when no natural bid is available, simply pass. This works too.\n
On my occasional trips to Australia I will play a llittle real bridge. I have often played at the now infamous Pattaya-Jomtien BC.\n

I am always working in my mind on the optimum bidding system. My Jorj Club as posted on BW is as far as I have got and I am very happy with it. It is the result of years of evolution. The big step was taking out all 4-5s, three-suiters and club single-suiters from my minimum range opening one-bids, 10-14 points, and opening them with a two-bid. This means my 1C is only ever balanced, or strong with a club suit. Very helpful in competition.
