Yes, but is this outcome because of ignorance or greed – on sheer stupidity is not obtaining proper counsel?

A number of professionals are pleased to so play with clients.
I don't know of any that so do with one another.

Yes, opener's 1S doesn't suggest any more in values than 1NT.

Whatever, hand evaluation skills – beginning with Jeff Rubens in “Secrets” – will take you a long way.

An alert of a 4-card major is not required but there are some experts who wish it were :)

Richard – maybe so, don't know. It is unusual here in the colonies :)

Three-level Bergen raises, in part, are anchored on the LoTT as well as an evaluation of point count placement. I suspect that a good LTC anylsis computation would, far more often than not, amount to the same conclusion.

Of course, real experts don't need either :)

If you want to be really dazzled, take a look at Suzi and Stan Subeck's card :)

I like what Craig has done but it's all too much for me – I just live with the Bridge Winners link.

Don't know if this link is helpful or not:

Paul, I know of three players (in the ACBL) who have done time so I suppose there are many more. If so, no reason most haven't gone on to lead productive (bridge) lives.

Many do play 3S as mixed.

In my view, Steve, Yu, Ed and Barry have it right.

I think, too, that Bergen raises have merit – but they have never been “expert standard” or BWS.

Inept director of course, but did he adjust the score?

Andy commented:

“Whatever else you play, 1M (1NT) 2NT should be a limit raise.”

My crude simulation (perhaps similar to Dave's) supports that view. Something like, a 60% game in a major (90% for at least 9 tricks) vs. an average of about 4.7 tricks in notrump.

Are some missing the point that this book is targeted for the intermediate player? Presumably, it will increase in complexity as the pages go on (if so, it is a proven way to first “seat” principles and concepts).
