about me

Learned weak NT to start then Acol, then SA, then Precision and then 2/1 (the easiest to learn as more of a treatment). Now try for 2/1 and Precision but often get stuck with SAYC. Recently learned Mosca club with canape and Polish club.

Book i learned bidding most from Precision Bidding in Acol by Eric Crowhurst

Redoubled with overtricks:

2D+2, 3N+2, 4S+2, 2S+3, 1N+3, 1S+3, 2H+4, 4S+1, 4N+2

Polish Club: answering to 2 Club opening
Do you want science or a steal? 3N may cold, make on wrong lead or have no prayer. Go with science you may find a spade stop but if none you give info to defense. Blast to 3N no info may make possibly on wrong lead but you dont know ...

Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875
Unless partner has no sense of humour and XX 4 when you run from 3N.
All Strong Club Players Are Now Bidding 2!D With Short Diamonds
Polish club will not be allowed in Basic or Basic+ I believe. It's funny almost the only non Standard or 2/1 system allowed is Precision. But you have to open short 2. There is even a special rule in Basic to allow a Precision 2 ...

Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Even one "mistake" of this kind would get you suspended at most reputable publications. These are repeated "mistakes". I am surprised he still has a job. There are some countries that don't respect copyright, but United Kingdom isn't one of them.
1 Diamond - 2 Clubs in 2/1
That's all we need alerting non-reverses because they are non-reverses.
One side of a ruling
At MP all he has to have to bid 4 is to think 4 will score better than 4. North does not have to expect to make 4. The question is bidding 4S taking advantage of an incorrect explanation.
