I am keen on these overcalls - against me. A decent source of +500-+800

If he had void Jxxxxxxx xxx Qx he would likely bid as he did, if he had xx xxxxx xxx Qxx he would pass 3S so why has he bid on…………

How do you know it is a 5-1 heart fit rather than a 7-1 heart fit with a very weak hand?

Do you announce this to your opponents?

a) & b) are the same but a) is illegal and almost everyone says so. b) is apparently not felt illegal by some. Further comment by me would no doubt be felt inappropriate.

Please explain to me the difference between
a) I play 13-17 but partner plays 15-17 &
b) we both play 15-17 but I “deviate” & can bid on a suitable 13 count, partner never does.

No, but if one person plays 13-17 & the other plays 15-17 but the both write the same thing on their card that is against the rules.

Open as you wish. However maybe you should tell the opponents what you might have.

One assumes your opponents know you will double in this sequence which rather affects the calculation

Many years ago I played against a much much better pair & opened a 20-22 2NT. Partner passed with a nice 4 count (!) & they doubled to give us a top. All they had to do was sit there and we would have dished them up a good result.

I'd love to know how one proves such a thing. We have someone at our local club where the tables are very close together that a number of us are sure is doing this (amongst other things). If we could prove it we could do something but without proof what can one do?

I don't know but I was told that pass was appropriate so wanted to check how clear the 1NT that I thought should have been bid was.

But the scoring system does it for you. No calculations are needed so why wouldn't it do so for teams.

It is easy (not that I know how but the scorers found it easily enough) to score using the NGS as a handicap. There is an option in the scoring system to allow this which we have done for pairs.

There was a little thought before 3NT was bid. Not a huge hesitation but a clear pause.

Hardly rocket science. The EBU has allowed online entries to events prior to the start for some time. You pay for your own as does your partner. Who is playing with who gets sorted out with no trouble from my experience.

best X is a 7. I opened 1 my partner said she would have opened 2 but I can see an auction like 2 2 2 3 leaving me poorly placed

I am confused here. I can't imagine it as anything other than a cue bid. I don't see why one would introduce a new suit at the 4 level opposite a 3S pre-empt. OTOH you are much better than me so there clearly is a reason. If you could expand on this I would be grateful.

Misposting in and of itself does not mean I am unable to read
