Due to a late arriving player I was called upon to fill in at the beginning of one of our afternoon games.

Since we were already starting the round late due to my duties as a director (setting up the game and distributing boards and scoring devices to 33 tables...), and since it was only going to be a 1 or 2 board affair, we did not have any time for system discussions.

I wanted to keep it very simple and as conventionless as possible.

All I said before sitting down opposite the World Class player whos partner was late was something like: "4 card majors with the only conventions Stayman and Blackwood and I'll give you also Negative Doubles".

My partner objected to the 4 card Majors so I setteled for "1S promise 5 but 1H could be 4".

No other systemic discussion took place.

As you can see 7 is not the optimal spot on these cards...

Who has to pay for the drinks?
