Current Rumours for World Bridge Games 2020
Given that we will most likely have to pay the expenses of the tournament it would be nice to know before we hold the trials.

I know this is not what you asked but I recomend this: 3 = transfer to 3 3 = transfer to 3 3 = trasnfer to 3 3 = transfer to 4 one of those transfers is impossible (to opponent's suit), use that one as ...
Bidding philosophy
