Open+ Chart opens up new bridge territory
Is this the "HUNT" you guys play?
Open+ Chart opens up new bridge territory
Good point that it's easy to defend and takes away a useful bid if opener is not strong. I guess it's mainly useful against strong artificial 1m. Not too many folks play strong one bids so the restriction against using it vs. natural is not that important. The ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: K84 AK Q843 AK65
4N if partner interprets it as natural may get passed and fail. Slam may be possible, but the most likely strain is . 4NT KC commits your side to slam on hands where you have enough keycards. If 5m is 18+ with a 5-card minor like GIBs play it, that ...

Open+ 6+board 1NT with small singletons
"your GIB results can't be transferred to the human category" Good point.

Soloway Jump Shifts
Yes, they seem to be one of the more effective slam-bidding tools in the sparse arsenal of splinters, keycard and ...
Soloway Jump Shifts
The GIBs seem to be playing Soloway Jump Shifts again now.
What Methods should Require Advance Submission Forms & Written Defenses?
The purpose of the written defenses is to allow pairs that do not want to spend a lot of time preparing have a set defense to "gotcha" conventions without discussing it beyond saying they'll play the written defense. 1NT with a small singleton is not in that case because ...
