BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
I agree it is an error to think that a ‘simple’ system – in the sense of one with few gadgets – is thereby simple to play.
Trial Bid after 1M-2M
We play 1M-2M as constructive and our ‘game try’ is usually 1M-2M-4M. We can, however, issue a short suit try or ask with 2NT, both of which are often slam tries, or 1M-2M-4m, which is a long suit slam try.
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
By the way, ‘consensus systems’ have a way of not working well and not catching on. The reason is that they lack what can be termed ‘conceptual integrity’. In more mundane words: they tend to end up a hodgepodge of narrow majority preferences that do not go together too well ...
Ryan Connors's bidding problem: AT86 JT8643 6 82
I would not be surprised – and I consider it likelier – if both five-level contracts go down.
Change of Call
And ‘gender-neutral’ – which looks the same in Dutch – was just voted the most irritating word of 2017.
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: 93 2 AKQ8753 532
I hate Gambling 3NT and I know better uses for the bid. I also agree with Brad that one should not preempt with as solid suit.
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: 9 AJ86 K9763 AK8
4: this useful convention shows a mild slam try or better in partner's major and leaves bidding space (such as for 4 Last Train). 4 would show clubs. I would have expected to be the only one voting for this bid; now should I be glad ...
Nicholas France's bidding problem: AKQ84 AKJ92 --- KQ7
For some reason some (intermediate) players live with the idea that a strong two bid primarily shows a one-suiter. Not so. This is a prime example.
What is this double?
Penalty pass of spades (!), negative of hearts.
1NT on pass out position
No, as 1NT is neither articial nor highly unusual.
