As a matter of fact I googled KSU bridge system and got bridge construction expert system from Kandas State University:-)

Christopher, how would you bid with the minors reversed?

I like the KSU 2/1: FG unless both rebid their suit. I've played this in KSU, Precision and other strong club systems, Romex and now in Polish Club. We have just one more exception: 1-2m; 2-2N/3m; 3 emabling us to open light with 5-5 Ms.

Wouldn 't it be possible that pard has a void in the“impossible” side suit?

Exactly! If this is the definition of a penalty double, I can vote “all”

I double if I have a good lead, pard leaves the double in with 8+ and 3 suits stopped or comparable defence. With less bid 2 or own suit.

While I do agree that you can put your 21-22 balanced in precision (or polish) 1 with neglectable disadvantages, I don't like your 2N-bid. You give opps 3 options: penalty oriented double plus two substitutes for t/o. I wonder if there is a better use for the 2N-opening. BTW Ron Lel suggested (in another forum) 3 for the minors with only 2 options for opps.

Before bidding 3N there is still some room to inquire about a stopper.

Well, I guess the alternative is pass (unless X does NOT promise 4crd ). As for me pass is NOT an alternative, there is only 1N. Generally I don't take stoppers for 1N to seriously. Even if opps pick up the first 5 tricks all is not lost.

Damn it, for some reason I had 2-X-3-… In mind. I change my vote to 4.

I'd rather take a shot at 3N then 5. If run we just might have 9 tricks on a lead. If we have a loser 5 probably doesn't make either.

For once, I wished I'd play NFB. Now I have to pass. If pard reopens with X, I suggest an invitational 3S.

I might add, that this is only valid in the exact sequence 1-2m; 2, because a 2-rebid to show a minimum is no longer possible. 1-2m; 2 is not selfforcing. Uncontested we always play 2/1 KS-style: FG unless both rebid their suit.

In my book 2 is self-forcing and only the 3-rebid is nonforcing. 3 denies a stopper and is probably only a doubleton. If I do not want to force and are not strong enough to rebid 3, double first.

I always use the stop card and leave it at the table for (what feels like) 10s. If my RHO makes a skip bid, with or without the stop card, with or without leaving it on the table (should be on the table in Germany), I wait for (what feels like) 10s. My observation is: the stop card is almost always used, almost always immediately taken away and almost always ignored. I agree with “stop the stop card”! And while we're at it “stop alerting”.
