As I was told once - "Thinking is allowed"
Defense against (any) natural 1N
But if 15-17 is often 14-16+ (as it seems to be) then double is more attractive, also I find it simpler to play the same for all ranges of nt opener.
Defense against (any) natural 1N
I have seen this rule regularly. I saw a world class player say this on BBO some time ago. I happened to be playing against him a few weeks later in an open pairs. All vulnerable he overcalled, after my partners 1nt opening, in the protective position with a quite ...
Wayne Somerville's bidding problem: QJ9 K985 A A8742

A philosophy for Bridge (Life?)
Are you reading the new version of all of the series issued this year which is excellent? Only read the first three before then. The author discussion outside of the actual books is also very interesting. The illustrations are very good as well
6-5 Don't Come Alive Here
