Sandwich NT versus X
I've been playing Raptor Sandwich for several years and find it to be very effective. 1NT is for 4-5 or 4-6 patterns and weaker than the double. Double is for 4-4 shapes with stronger values. 9-card patterns come up more frequently than 5-5 so you are able to compete ...
Treatment Name 1m - 2H
Can we move this thread to the general forum? Many players who might use this convention may not look at the intermediate forum.
Treatment Name 1m - 2H
David, this doesn't seem to square with Andrew's method which is also the method I use. If the opener wants to play notrump and doesn't want to accept the invite he bids 2NT. This doesn't show 18 points. If opener wants to be in 3 notrump ...
Treatment Name 1m - 2H

Ken Gamble's bidding problem: AKQJ9754 AT85 --- 9
I actually opened 4D as NAMYATS, but many would not as it contained 9 tricks. I didn't like 2C as partner may have a lot of wasted points in the short suits and go overboard if he thinks I'm sitting with a 22 point hand, not a 9 ...
Namyats In Duplicate
Both examples fit my profile for NAMYATS so the bid can be used more frequently. I have used it for many years and have many positive results from it. I play NAMYATS with an added treatment OKSAV. Slamish partner transfers opener then bids a worrisome suit that needs to be ...
Invite with 8 points?
Thanks! This is excellent. I wonder how it improves with a 4342 pattern?
Invite with 8 points?
To simplify things lets keep it 4333
