about me

I am a retired IT product manager and live near Hamburg, Germany. I Played bridge in the Netherlands seriously 72-78, the last 3 seasons in the 2nd highest team league. BTW the NBB is the second largest bridge association in the world! Systems were KS, Roman Club, Precision, our homegrown LOB (M-openings 8-13 and a 14+ Precision like 1C), Romex, then back to KSU again. Moved to Germany because of a lovely women and stopped playing bridge until retirement at 60. Now playing German standard Forum D and first KSU then homegrown system based upon An Unassuming Club (courtesy of Don Varvel and David Goldfarb) with my regular partner. As you can see from the list, my motto is "Bridge is a bidders game".

Is this X takeout or penalty?
Good enough for 2, but I‘m glad that I can bid 1N (raptor aka polish nt) with my regular partner. As for your question, in my book X is t/o of as others have mentioned.

3 is asking for a penalty double, X is complying.
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
If openers 1M-range is 11-15 responder needs 12-13 to continue with 2N and a game force needs 14+.
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
5-13 at most 3crd support is what we play and say!
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
That is in you open 1N with a 5crd M
Surely not another missed game with 10 trumps
John, are you a walrus?
What's the position, post-Boye Revelations?
At least P/S have admitted that they are wrong. W/E show a complete lack of understanding that they acted unethical and unlawful. Unfortunately they had better lawyers then did DBV and a judge who probably doesn‘t even know what bridge is. I‘m afraid that there is ...
