Transfers after Transfers or Transfer Extensions
For me, the big advantage of second-round transfers is the ability to agree the minor below 3NT. I would play natural continuations.
Two-suited Overcalls
... and some people prefer a natural 2 opening. I'm not one of them
Two-suited Overcalls
Ian Thanks for the detailed response. Whilst I could accept that your scheme of two-suited overcalls may be superior to Multi-Landy, that wasn't the thrust of my original question.

600k boards from Vugraph: lies, damned lies, and statistics
Given that points held doesn't follow a normal distribution, how many hands do I need to hold for +0.07 to be statistically significant?
