Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Thanks, Craig. I wonder how different this is from what I'd want to communicate with 2 followed by 3?
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Frances, I've mapped it out, and if I use the immediate jump to 3 as a 5=6, I've used them all. (The delayed jumps are auto-splinters.) I'm actually one or two short, and have to decide whether the memory load and giving up the 5 ...
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
This is sweet, John. It gets rid of the main thing I don't like about the 2NT relay - having to give the opps the chance to make lead-directors on the way to a natural invite. And also opens up some additional possible bids.
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
"That would give up the shape precision in 2N follow-ons." I'm not proposing that one give up a 2NT follow-on structure such as you suggest, just that one can *also* give some meaning to the direct and delayed jump to 3, for instance.
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
It would mean you wouldn't need them for *this* purpose. But you can either leave them idle or give them some other meaning.
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Some use the direct jump to 3 and the 2 then 3 to show auto-splinters and splinters in opener's suit. In his Chapter in Hardy's book, Baze recommends the direct jump as support in opener's suit and the delayed jump as an autosplinter, but ...
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Yes, see above, where I'm wondering how the sequences in Gavin Wolpert's article and Oren Kriegel's post would differ from those splinters.
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
On this auction, how would 2NT -3 - 3 differ from the other ways that people show splinters in support of clubs - either the direct jump to 3 or 2 - 2 - 3, per partnership agreement?
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Thanks, Steve. Interesting stuff. As asked below in response to Oren's, I wonder how the sequence showing spade shortness in support of clubs differs from the other way that people show splinters - either the direct jump to 3 or 2 - 2 - 3?
Two-Way Checkback/XYZ Question
Just concerned with sequence after a 1NT rebid for now, so 2 would be a puppet, but this post is just about GF or better.
