Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Symmetric Two-Bids (clubs and diamonds both strong and artificial)
Ken Rexford wrote a book on this topic. I've forgotten the title, and I'm too lazy to go into the other room and look right now. We've changed a few details, but the basic idea is this : 2C is strong, either balanced (may have 4-5 spades), or ...
The disappearing evening club game
When my wife and I started playing 15 years ago, we were still working, so we played Thursday evenings. There were also afternoon games on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. We rarely played on Saturday. When we started, Thursday ran around 8-9 tables. The Thursday finally died a couple of years ...
Grade The Play Schedule

10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
In 15 years, I've never held a ten card suit, but I've been at the table twice when someone else held one.
An extra jump
Self splinter, independent of the other stuff mentioned with that choice.
Mini Roman; I don't like it but . . .
I have also played Maxi-Roman, using submarine response as John said just below. It works very well when it comes up, you're ahead of the field then. What we discovered was that it came up more often than we expected, but did not always pay off because sometimes the ...
