about me

Systems builder having some opportunities to benchmark them in France, would they be highly unusual or little gadgets around standard. Convinced that Fantunes opened the path to a new way of bidding (but I am too addicted to good ethics to win).

Gazzilli over 1!D
If you are guaranteed 5+ then losing ability to stop in 1NT is largely outweighed by benefits in precision won by Gazzilli. When you are 5332 you have 2/3 chance to have 3 card support. When you are 6332 or 5422 it is unlikely 1NT is the best contract.
Gazzilli over 1!D
I don't get it. Strong NT hands (if not all NT) should go through 1 with transfer responses for a lot of reasons. If you play old fashioned strong Club, this may become your first bullet point on system rework list :)
Gazzilli over 1!D
Yes I am extrapolating 1 1M 1NT from the 1 1 1NT I play already. I have written the extension for 1 but it is still not validated with partner. :)
Gazzilli over 1!D
I play it Gazzilli after 1 1 with no siding issue so far. Having other ways to raise with 3 or 4, you will usually be short so most likely correctly siding minors. Same should apply for 1 of course.
Is it really just 37%?
You are lucky there are always 4 cases for each of the given examples Jx Tx JTx with x varying in 4 values. Each unit case is worth 1.6 or 1.7 (I had 10 of those in my example). Multiply your % by 4/10 and you are ok.
Is it really just 37%?
Yes I fear most people mess up in the reasoning. Quickly said: * when opponents follow suit you don't really win information, you only discard some distribution and zoom in the remaining ones. * from other suits the most useful information is the known length difference (if side suit breaks even ...
Hobson's Choice
There is no way you will play 2. OK Pass by West is strange, but failure to balance to 2 would be impossible. You can anticipate this when you hold only 2 spades, so Passing 1NT is normal imho... and ability to not checkback is useless. Should you ...
Martian Standard Defense to Big Club
My recommended defense over forcing 1C (would it be Polish, Strong or other) is very simple: - Pass can hide a NT hand - X/1D/1H/1S are transfers with at least opening values - 1NT/2x... are your defence over Strong 1NT, 1NT replacing your double bid. All deny opening values ...
Ruling and Appeal (alert failure)
Fully in line with David comment. 3H facing 5m4M is nonsense. East deserves a visit to local ethics committee
