about me

Learned weak NT to start then Acol, then SA, then Precision and then 2/1 (the easiest to learn as more of a treatment). Now try for 2/1 and Precision but often get stuck with SAYC. Recently learned Mosca club with canape and Polish club.

Book i learned bidding most from Precision Bidding in Acol by Eric Crowhurst

Redoubled with overtricks:

2D+2, 3N+2, 4S+2, 2S+3, 1N+3, 1S+3, 2H+4, 4S+1, 4N+2

What should the selectors do?
Lies, damned lies and statistics. LOL
What should the selectors do?
I presume placing in the European championship is what qualifies an English team for Bermuda bowl. Doesn't it make sense that the team that won the qualification goes to next stage if available?
Precision help wanted 2
My cat Jack would vote for double!
Precision help wanted 2
3 suiter's are notoriously hard to bid. Upgrading to opening 1 won't help any. With no club honours in longest suit I think best to make whatever your non 1 system bid is. But if you do open doing a takeout X at first opportunity seems ...
Legal Agreement or not?
When every double is takeout it makes it hard for newbies to expose a psyche. And since this bid wasn't alerted I presume a double would be takeout even for someone who knows what they are doing.
Would you roll this back?
Tell them they are playing SAYC. You can't play Precision with no agreements.

Is there some point to listing the entire rules? Surely a link to the rules and saying read pg 13-16 would be sufficient?

In any case a response of 3 to a sjs is forcing and may have extras. So yes would suggest bidding on might work

Also you do not have ai that partner is responding to a sjs
Please, One More Time for this Theme
It suggests partner does not know about spade fit and has underrvalued or misbid hand
