Do You Count Your Cards?
I count by flicking the cards one hand to the other and counting the clicks takes less than 2 sec
Five card diamond.
I have opened a 5 card for 10 or so years. We pair it with a weak NT that contains all the 4441 hands. 1 can be 4 if it is 16+ and 4441 with a singleton . Our structure is based on 13+ forcing opening. We play ...
Discuss this convention
Thx Bryan it would be good to know the additonal benifits you mention. Also interesting that you dont appear to attempt to link the top of the range of this two bid with the bottom of your NT range?

Thanks for spotting the typo Richard. As to the question. You would have play the kaplin inversion to avoid the 45 trap. After a 2/1 response i would favor 2 as showing the shape but not promising extras.

Your Opinion on This Director Call and Possible Re-call?
I find this attitude very strange. Yes he called the director at the wrong time, But: and its a big but, the attutude that we beter not call the director for fear of upsetting someone is the most destructive attitude. Its as bad as directors fudging the rules so that ...
Your Opinion on This Director Call and Possible Re-call?
I am not a director It is appropriate to ask after the hesitation: do you agree you partner hesitated? If they agree then you can decide to call the director at the end of the hand if 6 makes. If they dont agree then you can call the director ...
