Richard Granville's bidding problem: Q 7532 4 AKT8743
In my regular partnerships, an opening 2nt is a transfer to 3; 3nt would be a transfer to 4.
Best defense against Big Club?
MAR: "Whatever your strong 1NT defense is, it is likely to work against strong 1 (or 1)" This is exactly what I do with my two main partners using MultiLandy (when we have any reasonable excuse) to get the bidding up to at least the 2-level as soon ...
