DONT vs. Meckwell
When playing Meckwell, I like to respond to double as if it is both majors. 2 is longer spades or equal length majors, whereas 2 is longer hearts. When Meckwell bidder has a single-suited minor, only on the longer heart response will it need to be corrected to ...
Summer NABC Moved
April fool's jokes need a ring of credibility to work. They also need a bit of outrageousness, so you get that chagrin when you realize you've been had. My wife and I have been doing it to each other for 38 years now. At this point, we are ...

An Argument for Attitude
I think Rusinow makes sense, but currently only play it in 2 situations: at 5+ level or against gambling 3NT
An Argument for Attitude
When always playing Ace for Attitude & King for Count, are Rusinow leads used? I'm thinking how would count help when leading K from KQx.
Jump Reverse
Invitational splinter, weaker than 4
TransPup lebensohl
When interference is : bid 2NT to force 3 and then 3 is to play (transfer off after initial 2NT when it is into opp suit) When interference is : no good way, perhaps if opener re-opens I like the comments - helpful as to weaknesses that should be ...
