Answer to 2 club opener
This was send by a member to share with you all:
The following is a revised step response to a strong 2 club opener.
We use this and find like any other system, it gives us more information in one bid and allows the strong opener to place a contract with better accuracy. Remember like any system it is not 100% so at times you will be put down. But remember, in almost 80% of the time, we get to the proper contract with minimal bidding space.
