How to bid this in 2/1
OK, maybe not normal, but as I see in a part of the world when 2/1 is not common in bridge clubs. For me it clearly distinguishes between 6 spades weak and 6 spades at least invitational.
Does anybody dislike 2/1?
Put me down as liking 2/1 but with a forcing next step, some variety of Gazzilli, together with a Kaplan inversion that brings back the 1NT contract after a 1 open. Very happy with it.
How to bid this in 2/1
I would expect a fair number of people reply 2, as I would do with a partner that does not play it as GF heart support. A typical weak 2 open. Isn't that normal?
Simple Transfers over 1 Club opening
I have played 15/16 1NT, 5 card majors, transfer walsh for years now. The 1 occurs very frequently, but I too play unbalanced diamond so with regard to the choice of which minor to open my only criteria are (1) open a 6 card minor (2) open 1 ...
What to do holding (5-4) in the majors after 1!C - (1!D)
The notation I have always used is : 4531 is your 4=5=3=1 {6331} is your 6-3-3-1 45{31} is your 4=5(31) where inside the braces the order is arbitrary, but outside it is definitive. Simple and concise, without causing intellectual repulsion at false equalities. You don ...
What to do holding (5-4) in the majors after 1!C - (1!D)
No, transfer walsh in any natural environment. I play strong NT, but it is the best treatment with weak NT too. This holding is just one example where it pays off. Opener bids a 4 card major if he has one, else bids 2C and responder then transfers to the ...
What to do holding (5-4) in the majors after 1!C - (1!D)
1NT to show a {45}xx, as I play transfers in response to a 1 open, where this is the normal response and the overcall makes no difference. (A natural 1NT would be a 1 bid, as a spade holding is shown by a 1 bid.) This ...
Systems on/off after responder bids over your 1 NT overcall.
Transfers on where available, Stayman via cue bid, Double is a transfer.
2/1 T-Walsh
Another factor when considering twalsh is that it works much better if 1 is a balanced hand - see the 1NT rebid for example, in the first reply, which is a bit crazy if you have a shortage somewhere else. It also helps that responder can go happily jumping to ...
Opening 1!D with 5clubs and 4diamonds
Yours is a possible interpretation, and it maybe should be clarified in the next issue! However, the paragraph is a subparagraph relating to an opening made in a suit that may be two cards or fewer, so it might not / in my view does not apply to an opening that ...
