Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Does 2!d response to 1M ideally promise 5 !ds?
Other (from Jurassic Land): All two-over-one responses to a major show 5+ cards because 1NT (6-14) and 2NT (15+) are available for all other hands.
Lanzarotti in Monte-Carlo

Nasty preempt
I agree with Timo! Rule #1: Never argue with anyone whose name çontains two çrazy letters.
Nasty preempt
After 3H, I'd make the same bid but give up on a magic grand. For example, take away the SQ or CQ and 6C is right. I don't like 4D because that should agree hearts. A case could be made for 3S (forcing), but how this would help ...

ACBL - Time to add new GLM Ranks?
Yeah, the ACBL needs more ranks. Maybe "Grand Almighty Poobah" for Meckstroth, and leave out the "Almighty" for seniors like Hamman. Is it any surprise that Horn Lake anagrams to Rank Hole? And while we're at it, we need more masterpoint colors too.
Best line to make 6!D please, and why?
Interesting. I make Frances's line about 58 percent (75 percent of 3-2 trumps, and 25 percent of 4-1 trumps), and Henry's line about 48 percent. Of course I might be partial on this as I learned many years ago how keen she is. Hey, this thread might even ...
