Trivia quiz: how high (or low) will you go?
The next set will follow in the next day or so -- anyone who wants to act as tester please email me (barryrigal@mindspring.com)
Jacoby 2NT?
Agree or as fit jump for clubs with P-1M-3 natural in a Drury context. (I think Debbie beat me to the punch by less than 10 seconds).
Trivia quiz: how high (or low) will you go?
Thanks all. I will try again soon, having learned the appropriate level of insularity of my readers! In future you should assume that if there is an obvious answer it probably wont be right, if there isn't the answer while obscure should at least contain an interesting fact or ...

Ridiculous results, doubled or redoubled
Until the score changed, when NV, 6Sxx+1 scored the same as 7Sx making. We played 6Sx+1 at our table...I forgot to redouble. Team-mates doubled 7S -- and they removed to 7NT down three.
Trivia quiz: how high (or low) will you go?
If I knew I'd put it in. I'll pm you the answer if you like and you can research it.
Combining preemptive, mixed, invitational and GF minor-suit raises with showing balanced hands.
Michael I don't disagree but having opener be able to rebid 2NT forcing is surely helpful. Maybe there are ways round that after 1-2 by playing 2 as minimum or 'not club length' but there again I was looking for something as simple as possible.
