Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
Yes, 1 is always 15+ hcp or a 4-loser hand.
slip of the tongue ?
The J is played. Not a slip of the tongue. Edited 2/24/17 17:20 hrs EST: After reading the comments, I change my vote to allow declarer to win the trick with the K!
slip of the tongue ?
No it is not the same, clearly the Q is played.
Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
Yes, I like intermediate twos, 10-14 hcp. We have found them to be a good fit for Strong Club systems.
Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
OK, but this is not a Precision type of system. It is designed for Match Pont Pairs with emphasis on partials and minimizing interference problems as hands with a 5-cd major and 15-19 hcp and 4 1/2 losers or more are opened naturally, not with 1,
Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
That hand would be a 1 response, no 4M and 0-9 hcp. I don't think Richard is advocating bidding 1NT or 2 with such a hand.
Strong Club: Upgrading Nightmare System for ACBL Summer NABC in Toronto
Yes, in many of my systems I use the 1NT response as majors, 5-4 or 4441 with a minor suit singleton. Thus, 1 is available for balanced and primary.
Feedback for Convention Chart, Part 2
Weak hands currently can open 2M with an unknown 4-cd minor per GCC. I would like to do the same with a 10-15 hcp hand. It would solve an issue when playing Canape in a Strong Club System.
Feedback for Convention Chart, Part 2
Not allowed GCC or Mid Chart, current charts. Was removed (4-4 in the majors) from GCC a year or so ago. 2 Suited Openings or Overcalls must be 5-4 or better. Whoops, you are problaly asking about proposed new chart(s).
Inverted Majors
Yes, this is correct. But you cannot play the Power System where both minors (2/1) are artificial and one is GF and the other is GI.
