Criss -cross Inverted Raises
I like 1m-2m invitational, because sometimes 2NT is the right contract after a 1 opening. No way to get there if 3 is the invitational raise. But I think there are better uses for the jump shift, though I'll play criss-cross if partner insists. I've never ...
2!d Opening to Show a Balanced 18-19 HCP?
Playing Karosel 2 in two partnerships (2/1 5cM strong NT). It's probably my fun favorite convention, in part because of the implications available in many other auctions. 2NT jump rebid is available for other uses, and opener's jump raises imply (near guarantee) unbalanced hands. LHO jump ...
Game Tries after Potential Three Card Raise of Major Response
2NT asks trump help need 2/3 of AKQ, 3M general omnibus invite, other suits are help-suit tries.
Comedy of errors: how do you straighten it out?

Scramble or Good/Bad or other?
Or Rubinsohl (transfer to clubs, not limited), if you play that instead of Lebensohl after doubled weak twos.
Odd Movement
yes please!
Paper or plastic?
Speaking of paper or plastic... does anyone have recommendations/feedback for *jumbo* index cards in all-plastic? We have so many players in our club with age-related vision issues that we are mostly using jumbo decks. I only have them in paper right now, and miss the ease of use and ...
Paper or plastic?
Using a Dealer4 here, and really like the ACBL plastic. They feed through the machine beautifully. I personally like the thin supple feel, somewhat similar to KEMs, but that is a matter of taste. I have one very old set of plastic trays that will not hold the ACBL plastic ...
