Hi Andrew,

I have 2 questions:

1. When play PJ and non-serious 3NT, Is it necessary to use LTTC?

2.

1 - 2
3 - 3NT

1 - 2
2 - 3
3NT

In above 2 auctions, someone already announced the partnership is in the slam zone. Can we say this:the 3NT is a waiting bid, not slam try.

If the quality of the trump suit to a full solid suit, also to achieve the same purpose, is it ok?

If opener hold AKQ652 A3 KQ2 72, and his partner hold 3 J7 AJ3 KQJ10986, 6 maybe -1 but 6 is cold.

About opener jump rebid his own suit, I've seen three definitions: solid, lack A only, solid or only 1 loser. Can you explain their advantages and disadvantages of it?

Hi Andrew,

“I agree your 2nd and 3rd example are too strong for a jump …”
The last two examples, this should mean?

“My general rule is that 5-level slam tries promise that 5M is cold”
I read your article with a translation tool, it cannot translate the meaning of the “cold”.

“For me, 3-card support with 3 of top 5 or any 2 or top 3 is fine. ”
The last “or” seems to be “of”.

Very good article, solved many of my confusion.
I have another question: In your example, is the opener rebid his own suit promise 6+ cards and unlimit his hand?

- No 4 card openings in 3rd seat. Ok
- After 2C interference, I still prefer systems on with double showing stayman (DBL explicitly denies garbage stayman). If 2C=+?
-I didn't see puppet over 2N, I'm assuming you play it though.Yes, puppet not in LC Standars

Preferences

- Really prefer semi forcing NT but I'll leave that up to you.Can play both
- I prefer 2H bust over 2C. 2N is positive for hearts.See LC, 2D=waiting
- I prefer 3D/1N to 5-5 in the majors, opener names his best major. 3H and 3S stay as splinters. Ok,and 3=puppet
- I don't know Smith echo (sorry) Can turn it off
- DONT I play 2NT shows minors, so it's Clubs plus Major and D plus major. Also, I play Meck if you prefer. Ok

The treatment by Tony Forrester:

X = T/O of , or strong than 2NT
2 = T/O of
2 = natural
2NT =15-18, System on.
3/3 = natural
3/3 = natural, good one suit hand
3NT = natural, trick taking NT type
4 = +, min
4 = +, max
4/4/5/5 = natural
Pass then overcall = weak than direct overcall

I play LC(looking for partner, see my CC), 2NT is the default for balanced or almost balanced hands, says nothing about strength or stoppers, but unbid suit can't be xx.

Yehudit H, How about - AQxxxx AKQxxx x? If he double 3, at the second time, east should bid X or 4 or 4? When he play t/o, next time he could bid 4 (supplement: over partner's 4)

East can not have extra high card strength, but there may be extra shape, such as 0 = 1 = 6 = 6
