Gazzilli Question
Then what do you bid with a 5=3-32 minimum? 2 lets responder pass with 5 hearts and no game interest
how do you bid these hands?
My initial assumption was 3 natural forcing...…...but this partner is quick on the trigger with a slam try, so I wasn't SURE if he wasn't making a slam try in clubs. Afraid to "cue bid" spades, I tried to show a minimum with 4 (but ...
how do you bid these hands?
However, I came up with a fix for this style: cue bid twice with a strong fit; cue bid then raise is invitational; cue bid then new suit is a natural game force. I wish I had thought of that before! Ps: Using the amended scheme above, a 3H jump ...

Opening 10 HCP 6m331 hands playing Matchpoints
I open 1m with both (7 losers, 2 quick tricks, rebid, lead director, major suit support with a singleton). So what's not to like!?
No Drury in 4th seat?
I play a different form of Drury by a passed hand. 2 show 4+ trumps and ANY strength. 2 shows a limit raise with 3 trumps and 2M shows a single raise with only 3 trumps. If opener has no game interest opposite any limit raise, he closes ...
