Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
Why is it common sense? If a minimum opening bid isn’t forcing, why should it be common sense that a minimum response should be? Indeed, you can probably create an adequately functioning system where non-jump responses are natural, NF, (but not sign offs).
Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
Anybody else had this happen: You play with a pick-up partner and agree a few simple conventions. A few hands later (2) 2NT ... um, errr, diffident alert. “I think he’s showing the minors”.

A Request from Ms Manners
While I get what you’re saying, sometimes just concentrating on the specific problem might not impart the most important bridge lesson, and hence might lead the player to get themselves into the same situation again. Eg 2 (4) X (P). What should I bid now? On a ...
Time to simplify the laws?
Well the whole idea of declarer calling cards from dummy to play does this, and is pointless. I’d keep dummy out of it altogether and just have declarer play dummy’s cards.

Time to simplify the laws?
For most of these people continually commit these infractions precisely because they are never penalised. If you started penalising then, people would quickly follow the letter of the law. Eg Designating the precise card is no harder than saying “small” so there is no real reason why we should let ...
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
I think your last paragraph undermines your point. If you and I were playing together in such a scenario you, as dummy, would need to attract my attention make sure I knew you had looked at one of the hands, and then make an unambiguous signal, eg holding up 3 ...
This hand demonstrates how valuable Aces and Kings are. And I think this was underbid because both players, but especially South, failed to realise how strong their hands were once a good fit has been found.
Is this a weak two bid?
I think it’s losing bridge to agree to not open a weak 2 at MP with this sort of hand. On average, partner will bid better when he has some idea of our hand, and opponents will bid worse when we take away 2 levels of bidding. Waiting for ...
