Smolen over 2NT
David, Muppet Stayman solves the 5-4 M problem nicely, and always right sides the contracts. Barely more complicated than Puppet Stayman. 2N - 3C - 3D (same as Puppet, 1 or 2 4 card majors, no 5 card major) 2N - 3C - 3H (no 4 or 5 card major) 2N - 3C - 3S (5 ...

Gold Rush
Robert - I believe they are now Bronze Life Masters. My students are intermediates, they don't need to come to a beginner game. They don't need to play in 299er and Gold Rush games to build confidence, they're already playing in those games.
