Are Gazilli jump-shifts non-alertable?
I get this a lot. I have started "semi-alerting" as a result which feels like the wrong idea.
Weekend of pain
On hand 1 the problem with using 3 = Stop ask or raise are actually more apparent when partner doesn't have a stop. 3-4 4 Is this scrambling for the best non NT game or a ST. There are several solutions to this. I believe Joe ...
Gazilli Questions - Meaning of opener’s rebids of 3M and 3NT?
Firstly I would recommend playing Gazilli the “other way round”. By which I mean: 2 = 6M or 16+ 2M = 5M-4+ This helps the weaker gazilli auctions. As to your questions a lot of it depends on how good your gazilli continuations are particularly regarding 6M hands. Stabbing in ...
Meaning of 1NT rebid after a fourth hand double?
It all depends on the partnership agreement. Both good 13-14/18-19 or ART are common in the fields I play in. However, in a PuP I would try and avoid bidding 1NT with 12-14 OR 18-19 simply because it might be misconstrued. I would pass with the former and bid ...
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
Want to start out by saying bad luck to both US teams, both will come away from this stronger I imagine. Lot of talk about the 1400 board. Imps swing all the time (especially us juniors). I am actually more curious as to why USA1 was playing Singapore in the ...
1NT opening, 2S range check, 2 ways to invite with a long minor.
When I was playing Weak NT we put all weak sign-offs through 2. It isn't hard to make 2-2x-2NT = and put hands out in 3 or 2 depending on Stayman type. These days my structure is a bit simpler: 2 = or ...
When they double 3NT
Due to my approach and the fact that some players I play frequently against are simply doubling to get me to run, I prefer the approach of reasons to play in 3NT rather than reasons to run. Playing teams there is clearly even more upside to sticking. I would guess ...
1NT opening, 2S range check, 2 ways to invite with a long minor.
This seems to missing out on the best advantage of Puppet* Imagining 3 (standard) as our Puppet bid. 1NT-3 3-3M 3 = No 5cM 3M = 4oM This is really useful for hands that just want to play 3NT/4M and don't want to give the Opps ...
1NT opening, 2S range check, 2 ways to invite with a long minor.
I would argue that this isn't a spot in which you are going to miss a lot of slams with reasonable methods. Missing thin games though is crucial. The added advantages of Kits approach is you get to play in 2NT which is useful at MP opposite some of ...
When they double 3NT
So my views on this are fairly (probably far too) comprehensive. I am not a huge fan of stopper variants which Kit and others have advised above. This is not because they don’t work (they do), but because of the memory load. If RHO doubles 3NT for penalties (or ...
