about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Interference after a transfer
That's not a bad idea (though, of course, involving more suit bid artificiality is always a memory issue). Does opener more or less always accept the transfer to the minor, since responder might have a purely competitive hand?

Paul M: Yes it is the exact same auction for me - 6(+)-card invitational.
ATB missed grand
Robert I. E: " West should cue bid. East is totally unlimited, West has made a narrow limiting bid. " It might be "narrow" in terms of HCP. But it is far from narrow in terms of suitability for spades. I think what 4 should actually mean depends on the meaning ...
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
Your assumption is lacking...
Interference after a transfer
Slight addition is that 2N is competitive with a minor OR a competitive 3H bid. Direct 3H is invitational - so you don't 'lose' that bid.

Patrick L: "6 as"ks for K just as 6 asks for K" Are you saying that is (a) Standard (b) The only reasonable way to play or (c) your preference?

Steven G: I don't know which usage is inferior - SJS or WJS. But I'm pretty convinced that both are poor usages of responder's jumps.
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
Michal C: " From all I know partner is allowed to hold x,AKJxx,AQxx,Qx" Then you should increase your knowledge.
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
I don't think it's "reasonable" that I have to pass 2 with a void there and (say) QJ109xxx of a minor...

Henry: I agree - requires a lot of work to solve. I was merely responding to Christopher's implication that it must "deliver a fifth diamond".
