Convention Chart Revisions
A pre-emptive 2 opener showing both majors is permitted in the Open Chart as it is a quasi-natural opening bid (and not 'An Artificial opening Preempt below 3NT'), so long as it has a range of less than 10HCP. It is also permitted in the Open+ chart. [At least ...
Creating a WBF Convention Card

Full Disclosure ?

Weird weak two bids
It is clear that the intention of the C&CC was to permit Muiderberg opening bids in the GCC, where 2M is a weak opening bid showing 5M and 4+ minor. It is also clear that the C&CC and/or BOD are incapable of wording the chart to reflect ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: J9752 A64 K6 Q86
I fear that one spade would be on the table before I started thinking.
Two Over One - three bids that rarely occur. Is this a better use?
Garozzo's Ambra system (http://www.eclipse.co.uk/~sa5046/ambra.htm) uses this method and contains continuations. Ambra has the 2M-1 bid as either a weak raise or game forcing with diamonds. I play a version based on Ambra and like it, although it takes a fair amount of ...
