The New Three-card Limit Raise in 2/1
Jason - That's a good question and I don't know the answer. But to me, it looks like the same problem playing 2/1: Does one bid 1nt forcing and then jump to 3 or does one bid 1 and then jump to 3? (although 1 ...
4NT in Competition
Ed, now you’ve gone too far!
4NT in Competition
Seems a little vague...
4NT in Competition
Don’t forget about double and 5! And what would 5 mean here?
4NT in Competition
Playing Bad-Good Better Minor Lebensohl then the highest suit that you can show without jumping is diamonds. So for me, 4nt would both minors or slamish in diamonds, 4, 5 or 5 would be to play and double would be takeout with 4 spades and one or ...
For mini-NT players
Oh dear, a third comment... Assuming 1nt = 10-12 or 10-13 and could have a 5-card major only if 10-11 hcp, 1M - 1NT ? is a problem with three ranges to untangle: 12-14, 15-17 and 18-19. Enter a little help from Gazzilli (Note that is is not exactly Gazzilli but it's ...

Can I wake up after partner fails to alert Kokish Relay?
If the opponents were to look at your convention card then they would both know that that partner forgot Kokish and the auction has gone off the rails. Your obligation is to not make a bid with the intention to wake partner up (not that there is one here) but ...
Who is Einar?
Who and WHAT is Einar? ;) Raptor also uses the cuebid for a more creative purpose: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/raptor-1nt-explained/ I’m grabbing the book!
For mini-NT players
I have a suggestion: 2 = 18-19 or 24+ if bal. 2nt = 23-24 bal. — Responding to 2: - 2 = 5+ (potentially to play opposite 18-19 bal.) or waiting - 2 = 5+ (potentially to play opposite 18-19 bal.) Opener’s rebids after 2 - 2: - 2 ...
