Bidding-practice webapp
Hi Frances, Yes, you can at least do sthg similar in the BBO client, but with many more clicks each time you set up the table :) A feature I didn't quite find there, though, is to control opps' bidding in a simple way, as well as both players in ...
Strong club, 4c major system
This might be what you're looking for: Came out this year, 2018, and includes strong-1C, 4cM openings, and canapé-bidding in some sequences.

1NT defence
> I would expect Partner to continue with the ♠T upon gaining the lead. Why? From his viewpoint, u cud have AKx and he has JTx.
Transfers after intervention
-MOVED- ps. Why is there still no DELETE button?
Transfers after intervention
> "We found that we almost never needed a negative double." You never need a neg-X after 1M-(2m) ? That sounds questionable...
