about me

I often work in cellular sales/customer service I love bridge and crosswords (french, nyt and cryptics) . I'm a bidding systems expert/geek I've been a pro player and director on/off for many years, but I now mostly play for enjoyment of this very frustrating passion. I'm a recovering alcoholic for 10+ years and will help anyone I can in that department

I bid 3NT to aviod wrong siding
opening a weak NT my way, jacques Faure Le Havre
What Kieran meant is that if they always got it right and never played 2NT then they were cheats/had another signaling method to differentiate lower/upper range, and, consequently, might noe be banned :)
2H as weak both majors (2 good examples!)
