BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Indeed, Bob. Re the artificial 2 sequences. See my TBW article on CLOR for something along those lines. Lot's of upside and minimal downside. The first night we played it in anger, we got to a great slam after a 1 2 2 start showing ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Apologies, Richard. Got caught up with the construction and overlook the obvious - now corrected. Ian C
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Hi David. On that one, rightly or wrongly, I would have opened 1 (and rebid 1 over 1). A 65432 A2 A5432 is perhaps trickier due to the rebid issues. Ian C
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Indeed, Kevin. But one day I might hold (say) Jxxxx AKQ xx Kxx or similar and hear 1 2. Whilst 2 might tempt me (and 3 would certainly be possible, especially if a natural 2NT had been available to partner) 2 might be a pragmatic ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
In for a penny, in for a pound (dollar), Larry. I answered "not a terrible suit" as I can't remember needing to do it on that hand type in practise. However, I suppose it is possible to theoretically construct such a hand where I might. Hence, perhaps I should ...
Gazilli feedback from those who have played it
Hi Alexander. That sounds Kokish-like, which, on it's own, is a bit different (hard to tell without seeing most of the structure). If you're looking for something different but along those lines, consider Transfer Gazilli, i.e. 2 = or strong ... 2M-1 = 6+M, 2M = M+ ...
Gazilli feedback from those who have played it
Hi John et al. We play a method (as yet unpublished) called "Gazzevery" - i.e. "Gazzilli Everywhere". By this, we mean that we incorporate it over (our equivalent of) 1 and 1 openings, as well as 1 and 1. More on that in a minute. As ...
Gazilli feedback from those who have played it
continued ... "Gazzevery" Rule-set: After a (semi-)natural 1/1 response, opener rebids their cheaper unbid [b]minor[/b] either naturally or with a "strong" hand of specific types. For Gazzilli, this will always be 2. The "strong" types covered by opener's rebid are (A) Balanced hands, too strong ...
Gazilli feedback from those who have played it
Hi Yuan. I'm not a Flannery convert - I don't see sufficient utility in the opening (though many good North American players seem to). As an aside, I have always thought that I would play 2 as Flannery were I to play it. Still drafting the "Gazzevery" bit ...
After responderĀ“s double of Michaels
Hi Louis. It makes a difference. All other things being equal, the following assumptions are true (1) You are likely to need more space to investigate strain when wanting to force in the 4th (unbid) suit rather than raise partner, however (2) You don't want to go past the ...
