Comic NT
Comic (or Gardener) 1NT overcall is weak one suiter or a strong NT with a 2c to ask which. Mollo NT is always a weak or worthless one suited hand (so jump overcalls can be used for something else). Mollo was Gardener's partner but I am not sure if ...
Top players playing weak (12-14) NT in a natural 2/1 system

Top players playing weak (12-14) NT in a natural 2/1 system
I forgot to stipulate a natural 5 majors system, so Acol is not of interest. I think that is clear enough but if not then; "A 2/1 FG or nearly FG system with 5 card majors and a 12-14 nt most of the time in which 1d shows at ...
The Curious Case of Schneider-Reithoffer v Mollo

Return attitude not original 4th best
"The general rule is...when you have three or more cards left, lead the card that was originally your fourth best" This is from Woolsey's partnership defence (1980). Brock in "Expert Defence" (1997) implies the same idea. Is this still expert practice?
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thanks Fred, it was a pleasure meeting you at e-bridge here in Israel many years ago and there is no doubt that BBO showed the way forward for online bridge. Look me up if you ever come here again :)
