1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
I changed my vote to No alert. When you announce opponents 1NT = 10-12 the re-bid 1NT = 13-15 should not be unexpected.
Best defence to a possibly-short 1C?
I use a universal defense to Opponents 1. It works well against any System. Also often improves our bidding accuracy against standard systems because frequently 1 is not a oriented hand. I have been playing this defense for over 3 years. (1) , Double : 12+ at ...
Defence to Weak 2NT opener (minors)?
Our 2NT opening artificial bid can be either Weak to Average Strength 8-13 hcp or Very Strong 21+ hcp game forcing always showing both minors. This bid is expected to occur about 0.48% of all dealt hands. The weak hand occurs for over 98% of the 2NT Openers. Our ...
Five card diamond.
I voted minimum 4-card (occurs when 4441). About 82% of the time our 1 is 5-card. We include 5332 only when 10-12. 1 is always unbalanced when 13+. 5-card works very in competition; confidently bidding to 3 with 3-card support to kick 8-card fit ...
How to play 1 minor 1 heart 1 spade?
Very good to see that your system separates balanced from unbalanced early in the auction. IMHO there is not enough emphasis on this very important concept built into many modern bidding systems. My DCS structure is based on this same objective.
Is this alertable?
Discussion in this thread of alerting the natural 1 bid is of interest to me. My DCS system 1 opener situation is similar to the OP. My 1 = 10-21 hcp in 1st or 2nd seat. I alert 1 and if ask to explain say = 5-card + ...
Opening 10 HCP 6m331 hands playing Matchpoints
Open 1NT 13-16 and on very few 12. Open 1 1 or 1 balanced 10-12 with 5332. Open 1 when balanced 17+
Opening 10 HCP 6m331 hands playing Matchpoints
Opening both with 1m regardless of vulnerability is a very simple decision for me. My opening 1-level suit bids show unbalanced hands. Opening 1 / 1 shows a real suit with no suit longer than / . Both hands have a quality 6-card suit so I am very comfortable ...
Treatments over 1NT with 5-card major
@Ray I fully agree with your comments for those opening a 3-card minor when weak balanced. Some systems do not follow that practice. Decisions on opening 1NT when 5M332 are system structure dependent. FWIW My 1NT opener is 13-16 plus a very few 12 hcp. With this 1NT range including ...
Treatments over 1NT with 5-card major
The importance of an appropriate treatment is accentuated if you open 1NT with 5M332 in a weak NT range.
