Come on people – the charts are lacking in many respects but this one is easy if you just read It.

The rub is that the forcing nt bid is specifically allowed by the gcc and can feasibly be bid on nothing.

You have different rules to follow, so you shoudn't be suprised if you get dinged after making the call on the bottom range.

I'd imagine after 1M 2c you have some min catchall 2d response. if you do that with say min and long d's and M tolerance planning to pass the catchall or correct to 2M essentially unraisable in your system…issues

See #3 under allowed.

It is beyond obvious that your treatments are legal. Also, as it is in section 1-5 no defence are required. Only a description of the bid and a prealert.

The only issue here is determining if you will bid 2c/2d with hands that are not considered constructive.

And I guarantee no one here will be able to give you an ubiquitous answer.

Seems optimistic…like WC spec X hard but after showing the k i'd expect the spec to come from having dizzles ('s) covered.

“Surely I would have doubled with a club void”

This hand withstanding…as the inaction over 1 may be an indication of this partnership…I often play pards for a void even when they don't Lightner As we are allowed to consiDer 6!n is a playable spot.

Well, what club did she lead? And is it a high probability that this partner led it with the hope that I might be able to ruff it?

And what club did decl play?

I think this answers your question.

Yeah maybe slight was an underbid, but we are talking about a whole addition trick required in NT's now.

Tons of ways in midchart

Edit: example – 1M 2c = clubs, bal invite, limit raise…

2d response = min min

2M = Good here…could be any of the invites not interested in bidding again.

Going plus is pretty good…it would great to run the same Sim for 2M vs 2N. Just eyeballing the results I'd guess 2M being twice as likely to make at least 8 tricks. The question is the % of time when they both make, how often does 2M do a trick better.

Let's not worry too much about 1N…only relevant when we can't make 2M. And it also has to be a relevant target…condition state invitation.

RP did this for 2M vs 1N with 1n only being a slight winner. Surely if it's 2N, 2M would crush it.

Now just weight each and get a composite factor…the question is, should each be equally weighted?

Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to get an acbl endorsed ruling on this?
