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

ATB, and silence the resulters
For the resulters: East bids 2H solves everything. Just change your entire methods so you can safely overcall on this hand.
Another 2N-bid
What is better minor Lebensohl? There is no choice for pick a minor which is what I thought this meant.
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
The biggest problem for local clubs in our area is rent and location. If you want to be profitable you need to be able to put significantly more tables or be able to add more dates. Adding a problem at most sites. Only one club potentially has a full-time situation ...
