My 1NT engine
Here you are: Martens uses weak NT, but the mechanisms he proposes are universal. I use part of this stuff in a context of 15-17 NT. Disclaimer: I will not have any benefits from this promotion :)
My 1NT engine
You may consider Marten's approach Stayman + transfer. You will be able to sell virtually all 5m 4M (31) distributions below 3NT, as well as 5M 4M (31) ones. Moreover, you may bid this way with strong hands or stop in 3 of a minor with weak ones (e.g ...
Multiple bidding problem after Multi
Lebensohl after doubled Multi seems to be very helpful and it's recommended by many. In this particular deal, 3 seems to be a no-brainer, with or without Leb.
Opener's splinters after a 2-over-1
We play 3N any light splinter, 4C/D heavy ones. After 3N partner may ask 4C if really interested.
BW 2/1: Opener's "High Reverse"
After 3 I'd bid 4NT as a slam invite and the problem is more or less solved. Would it be a RKCB for you ?
Polish club 1!C-2m continuations
Yes, I know why, and even I had a (small and weak, but I'm quite prod of it) part in the discussion before this move, some 10 years ago. Władek Izdebski finally decided to choose double checkback because of its simplicity and direct approach, suitable for popular, standard system ...
Polish club 1!C-2m continuations
You're right, I messed it up. Thanks for correction. But I must add that the transfer checkback has been abandoned in his recent books (WJ XXI) in favour of the methods from my comment.
Polish club 1!C-2m continuations
Izdebski's treatment is more or less the same as your methods. It's a double checkback where 2d strong rebid after 1c - 1s - 1NT does not contain hearts, as distributions 5s-4h are covered by 1t - 1s - 1nt - 2c - 2d (forced) - 2h (at least one round force).
Polish club 1!C-2m continuations
There is indeed a great benefit in this switch! The basis for it is simple: if you have a GF response with 5+ clubs, the opener has almost certainly a weak notrump hand. But if you have GF with diamonds, he may have also a natural club opening. Therefore with ...
Bidding the Odds - can we do better than Kokish Relay?
Thank you for this nice contribution. IMHO the idea is fresh, convincing and simple to implement. Don't you think, however, that in followups after 2NT (hearts) it would be beneficial to exchange the meanings of 3C and 3S ? This would leave more space for positive unfitted cases, while 3S ...
