John Auld SYSTEM NOTES If 1NT 12-14, rebid 15-17 & 2NT (jump) 18-19 Respond to 1 bid with 5 pts; 4 pts if 5 card suit, less with 6 card major. 2NT is narrow range eg 20-21.

22 pts starts with 2. Consider latest ideas over 2NT. Devise ways of stopping below game after 2. Agree that after 2 positive response 3NT cant be passed John Auld
