2!C as weak majors 5+4+

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Awkward responding hand
4th suit 3 after 2 would solve this hand (Erik Klems post above). Why bother with 3? Visions of slam in on the horizon?
1M-3NT: What Do You Play This as Showing?
I play 1 - 3NT as splinter and 1 - 3NT as splinter (decent hands). In natural approach, these splinters are awkward in further bidding, requiring an instant decision from the opener. As far as I know, (C) Martens.
Does a 2!c response to 1!d opening deny a 4+ card major?
In Polish Club, holding 4M 5+m, you bid 1M below GF and 2m with GF.
“Virtually Every Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
Simple replacement for Smolen (popular at least in Poland): 1NT - 2; 2 - 3 = asking for 3M.
1!c-2!d: What do you play it as (in 2/1)?
Me too... Surprisingly, not very frequent sequence.
(1!S) - X - (2!S) - X
Right you are. But there's also some tradeoff. Quod libet.
(1!S) - X - (2!S) - X
- Responsive double for minors or GF with 4 (with or without stop); - 2nt, 3, 3 - transfers (better than 13 cards and a willingness to play); - 3 = regular invite with 4.
2!d Opening to Show a Balanced 18-19 HCP?
Recently I started to play such 2 after three passes. In this position I do not need Multi any more. From my (modest) experience, the natural 2 alternative does not bring anything extremely useful, while removing strong balanced hands from other openings is quite valuable IMHO. Positive factor ...
How do you play redouble here?
I play it as a transfer to . In such situations, redouble starts a chain of transfers, ending at a simple raise of the partner's suit (the weakest option). The idea is following the Useful Space Principle methods. This particular sequence is very effective for transfer approach, allowing to ...
Double after game force has been set
I'll be probably a lone fool here, but here's the treatment advocated by a book "Modern relay systems" (D.Kowalski, in Polish): Direct double after first GF relay (2 here) and intervention = shortness in the enemy's suit. May come handy if bidding gets turbulent; Double from ...
