about me

A system geek, even played strong pass (Regres) when it was allowed.

Of course have my own relay-Precision, which is of course the best one in efficiency / memory load ratio Smile

Graduated as a mathematician, work as a software developer.

Making a small slam in a 5-4 fit after finding QJxx on the wrong side. And some succesful falsecards. I forget them easily, thus I write them on my homepage sometimes.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Using 2/1 as a Convention
Just ask Hamman, Mike Lawrence, and Bobby Wolff.
Using 2/1 as a Convention
And still, about 50 years ago it was normal to play 1M-3M as invitational, and 1M-2N as GF balanced denying 4-card support. With some GF hands you had to start with a new suit even with 4-card support. And... well, let me think... in our relay precision there is no ...
Using 2/1 as a Convention
We play very similar: (Precison base) 1: 4+, F1 (rarely GF) 1N: 7-12 SF (no fit, no good 6m or 5 with INV) 2: GF relay 1-2: transfer to . Weak with 6+ suit, INV with 5+, some special GF (light slam try) hands 1M-2M-1 ...
Using 2/1 as a Convention
What do you respond with AKxx, Qxxx, AQx, Jx to 1 if you don't play Jacoby or similar raise?
how do you bid these hands?
Fit jumps look good in textbooks, but in real life you just never have those hands. And even when you happen to have them you can bid them without playing fit jumps. I tried them but stopped playing them long ago. I'd recommend playing 3 as nonforcing but ...
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
Another poll for those who chose 1: what is your next call if partner responds 1M.
On an Assumption
Kit, do you really have two ways to stop in 3 and no way to invite with diamonds, or have I misunderstood something? (surry just noticed that duplicated Rainer's comment, forget it)
For the Throat
Rule of 2 and 3 is gone long ago, especially vulnerable. Nowadays in 19 out of 20 times a vulnerable 3-level opening or overcall does not contain 7 tricks, and often done with less than 6. Thus it is not 2/3/4 today, rather 3/4/5 or even ...
YBTJ Missed Slam
A singleton is as useful as a king, North should cuebid it. North is too strong for a direct splinter híd. I think it is better to show shape below 3M than controls. (By the way, above 3M too :-) )
Double Standards
Ducking the first spade?
