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.

Why I suck at matchpoints
