John Brown's books always seem to get forgotten in these discussions - well worth a look!
What's a sensible defence against short-diamond Mini-Roman?
One defence to the Precision 2 opening is to use 3 as majors, 4 as diamonds and hearts, 4 as diamonds and spades. You can play X as if they opened a multi - something like 13-15 balanced or any 19+ hand. 2NT is 16-18 (I like ...
How scientific you think that should be (Big Bang 2NT opening)
The link to the system notes no longer works - is anybody able to post an updated link, or email the notes to me?
BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
If the standard of women's events is lower than the standard of open events, why show women's events on vugraph? But if the standard of women's events is not lower than the standard of open events, why hold women's events at all?
Systems On Over 1NT Overcall -- How about Lebensohl?
A bit off topic, but even if you do play 'system on', it makes sense to play that where the oppo opened 1M promising a five-card suit, Stayman asks only about the other major. (1) - 1NT - (Pass) - 2 - Pass, Overcaller bids 2 with four spades and 2 ...

Songs (sort of) about Bridge
And who can forget that Tom Jones classic, 'It's not Unusual (because I am in fourth seat)'.
The 3NT Opening
You are not the only one who thinks that Namyats is pants. Letting your opponents overcall a conventional 4 opening with 4 doesn't seem to be especially clever. It also lets them double the artificial opening. In my experience, the costs of this outweigh the advantage of ...
Openers rebid after 1NT opening and a 4-suit transfer response for the minors
After 1NT - 2NT, it seems to me that 3 should show a poor hand for diamonds and 3 should show a fit. That way, responder can transfer into diamonds with a weak hand and both minors, planning to pass opener's rebid. You play in 3 when ...
