Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What would you choose?
"See the discussion What is a ‘convention’? and its outcome." Since the majority vote was for: "Convention is any agreement, artificial or natural", I think that we need to be picking three more fundamental choices. So before we pick Stayman & Transfers (yes - they are ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Michael Angelo Ravera: I can't comment on the EBU's Orange Book, since it is many years since that document was superseded. The Blue book - 4 B 1 (b) has "...a pass or bid must be alerted if it is natural but has a potentially unexpected meaning." In my ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?

1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Mike, I am not aware of any requirement to disclose the purpose behind a bid. As stated, I choose to play a weak no trump and fully disclose this. I don't feel the need to disclose that one purpose behind our choice of NT range is that it is ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Mike Ma: "upgrade should not be seat dependent. If someone claims it is good enough to upgrade 3rd seat, then it should be good enough for first seat also." Why should your criteria for upgrading / downgrading be the same as mine? I certainly use seating as one factor in considering ...
