Looking for a partner to play Precision
Are you coming to Gatlinburg next week for the Regional?
New defense vs 1nt
I play Comffy Canape in one partnership. Love it when I have spades.
Who was over-conservative in this Match-point Scoring deal?
3 or maybe 4.
Who was over-conservative in this Match-point Scoring deal?
West for not making a T.O. Double and east for not realizing he has a limit raise (see other post on limit raises).
Disclosure that Limit Raise bid might be based on shape and not HCPs?
OK, make the hand: : KQxxx : Qxx : KQx : Ax Now it would accept a Limit Raise and still be down one!?
Disclosure that Limit Raise bid might be based on shape and not HCPs?
KQxxx xxx KQx Ax is a 6-loser hand and would accept a Limit Raise and be down 1.
Bridge Directing Question
Easy to avoid, let the phantom pair be E-W.
Did Philly decide on a start date for the few-holds-barred open chart?
Hawaii NABC, Nov. 22.
What other hand types merit jump responses to strong artificial 1C or 2C (or other) openings?
Thanks Chris. I meant that strong hands are opened 2 (which also contains strong 4441 or balanced 21+ with 5,6 or 1 or 2-suited with s primary). Thus, 2 - 2NT - 3 is available for some other usage.

Thanks Chris, we are playing your simple version of 2 for Gatlinburg and will add these improvements. Since our strong hands are in the 2 complex (along with strong 4441 hands), we need an idea for 2 - 2NT - 3? (Maybe both majors asking for preference?)
