1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Mike M. I think you nailed it. First and second seat upgrades tend to be optimistic. 3rd seat 1N opening “outside of expected range” tend to be obstructive. Especially non vulnerable. I have no idea how to announce this other than.......It’s bridge. Most experienced players understand tactics. It ...
