A Minor Case of Deja Vu
Richard you beat me to it! Yes we picked up quite big swings (I think about a total of 15-20 IMPs. I think it was Merbourne and Braid at the other table...but also did you remember that Lodge and I had been intending to play TRS but John Williams ...
Your Ideal Opening Structure
I played TRS with Steve lodge in the Junior Europeans in 1981 and with Peter Czerniewski in the later stages of English events. Lots of fun too! Pass in 1/2 0-6/17+, 1 in 1/2nd was 7-10, 1 in 3/4 weak or strong. In response ...
What is minimum requirement for Maxi Unusual 2NT hand?
The hand does raise the interesting question of whether if you don't bid 2NT your plan is hearts then diamonds, or diamonds then hearts. If the former, how would you feel with AKJxx/KJ10xxx..... or AK10xx/KQxxxxx. Personally I think all three decisions are rather close. But I could ...
Your Ideal Opening Structure
The most interesting systems I saw without restrictions from licensers were IIRC: Pazur/Zawislak and Fallenius/Nilsland who each at one point played a style where they had a way to open both weak and strong in each of the majors. Lots of relays with good hands, lots of obstruction ...

Two Little
Thumbs up from me for this comment!
Post 12 - Bridge Correspondents - Miss Alice Mackenzie, John Beamish, John Darrack & A. G. Figgins - Saturday, 13th January 2018
Two frivolous thoughts occur re Figgins. No relation to the Archer TV series Cyril Figgis? And secondly I know Glyn Liggins is a bridge writer but he isn't quite that old I suspect. Still the coincidence of letters is an odd one...
Meaning of 4!c call
Unplayable; you mean standard? Horses for courses. BTW I meant to answer Gerber flippantly without looking at the sequence; imagine my surprise when it was the first option. The answer to what 4 is as 'Never Gerber' even if you have it on the card would probably be a ...
Dutch doubleton or transfer responses?
Transfer responses are a lot of fun, as I'm sure DD is (I haven't played it). What I like is the 1 opening unbalanced, the convenient way to deal with 18-19 by the 1NT rebid, and the transfers by opener after 1-1M-1NT+, and 1-1 ...
Passing a redouble
No David the 'also' meant the one level passes are for rescue not to play.
