Over Their Weak Notrump
We play 2: The exception in that 2 is 8-12 normally 6 cards So 2/ are single suited but stronger 13-15 2NT as the minors or a game forcing two suited hand. 3 of a minor is 13-15 with 6 cards pass with opening hands that are ...
2D weak one major
We used to like 3 at least a game try in my suit 3 at least a game try in my . Easy to construct follow ups where opener can show the degree of liking of responders suit.
How and when do you try for slam - or don't you?

What is the correct TD decision and why?
We play similar methods to those Barry describes. In a collaborative slam investigation using these sorts of methods there are many inferences developed through the auction available to each player and each is involved in decision making. It is not inconceivable at all to me that raising 5 to ...
Guess the hand
I felt i could not catch up if i opened 2 to show the majors. Actually easier to bid in standard methods if you don’t want to lose the suit. The advantage of passing when it is always my hand is that i can place the contact ...
