ATB
I was mentor to Kyle and Sarik in the juniors and advised they add symmetric relay double negative track responses after their 2 bid. That system is not really up to finding 7 unless responder commits to the six level earlier, but at least it would have found ...
ATB
Yes, 7 is a better final bid. 100% of the blame since I bid both hands.
ATB
Equal blame for not playing a full relay after 2 rebid game forcing. E.g., symmetric relay double negative track w/inv KC in four suits: 1-1; 2-2 (bal); 2-2 (4-4 color or 4333 major); 3 (slam inv )-4(1 ...
Win the Wuhan Grand Prix 2 with us
It’s common in Europe to see 2 both majors 4+4+ 0-9 HCP. This is something the Danes played to win the Women’s in Montecatini Terme. Tromsø had Swiss Pairs with matching one round delayed from your score. I just did vugraph last week for U21. They ...

Thanks. Fixed.
Online entries for SF NABC?
Sorry I am out of the loop--I managed not to buy entries online for a few NABCs running. If I had found info about it on ACBL or BW, I wouldn't have asked.
Three Card Majors
My sense is that denying holdings that do not imply a sufficient minimum length in other suits is OK. That's a normal negative inference for 1 is 5+ and not longer than hearts for example. But saying promises no more than 9 cards in ++ at ...
Infernal Machine Lite (2021 beta test)
In the full system, 5 and 4 would bid 1-2; 2-2; 3+ and the 4 and 5 would bid 1-2; 2-2; 2NT- It's like the symmetric relay semipositive or 2nd force track. In the Lite version ...
Infernal Machine Lite (2021 beta test)
Sorry. We pass. Since partner has an average of 5.4-5.7 HCP depending on vulnerability, we leave the opponents to their own devices since it's probably their hand. Given we open nearly all 8 and 9 counts (70-88% depending on vulnerability), think of it as not opening 11 ...
Infernal Machine Lite (2021 beta test)
If it's got a 4 card major, we open 1M. If it doesn't, we open 1NT. (That's assuming it doesn't have a 6-card suit in which case we might open 1).
