Open+ 6+board 1NT with small singletons
Kit, that's a good point. The 1NT system is very cookie cutter which allows the judgement of the human who opened 1NT to decide on whether to accept invitations and to decide on distributional hands whether a responder 10 count that GIB will always game force with is enough ...
Open+ 6+board 1NT with small singletons

Soloway Jump Shifts
Yes, they seem to be one of the more effective slam-bidding tools in the sparse arsenal of splinters, keycard and ...

3 = shortness ask -3 = hi Singleton or void -3 = middle -3NT = no shortness -4 = lo 6331 -4 = lo 7(23)1
All your minors in 1!D (including a relay system to show exact pattern)
I really like the timed events at the Olympics vs the judged events. I also like rule of law. It’s a good point to have well defined rules for the hands shown or denied. There is a “void ask” permitted on the current general chart (local club games and ...
