about me

I play my own "Grumpy Club" system in partnership with my wife.

Short (forcing) 1C (11+hcp, no better bid) with forcing 1D response (neg or natural)

5 card majors, weak NT.

1D in 1st/2nd seat is 9-11 balanced or natural, natural in 3rd/4th.

Multi 2C, 2D and 2NT opening bids, Ekren-style 2H (3-11 hcp), normal weak 2S.

See website for EBU convention card.

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J975 AQ9 AJT72 J
The jump to 3 shows a 5 loser hand in my methods. However we would start 1C - 2C (xfer) - 2D - 2S so opener knows I have opening values (7 losers) with 5 diamonds and 4 spades.

I took a different approach and open 1 with diamonds or a balanced 9-11 in 1st/2nd seat. However the hand must conform to Ro18 (in EBUland) so with 9 hcp I must have a 5422 shape and with 10 I must have a 4432 or 5422. Works well ...

I am taking a devil's advocate position here because others are making too many unwarranted assumptions, we really need more info from Vigfus. Were CCs required in this session? What was NS's actual agreement? Did west think his final pass was forcing?
2 diamond bid weak
Maybe south didn't see the double and thought east had passed...
2 diamond bid weak
Since when did north get to see south's hand? North is only obliged to disclose agreements, we don't know if they were correct or not. If you were east or west and asserted that North was lying you would find yourself in very hot water.
2 diamond bid weak
You can't penalize someone for not having a CC if they are playing in a session that doesn't require one. I usually carry a mini-CC on club nights (where CCs are not required) which basically covers opening bids and carding, it does not cover this situation. North stated ...

Who lied? When?
