I'd like to find a compatible online partner. I'm somewhere between Intermediate and Advanced. I'm basically SAYC and I'm learning and wanting to practice all of the following:

1 NT 15-17
Stayman
Jacoby transfers
Jacoby 2 NT
Michaels
Unusual 2 NT
Splinter bids
Bergen Raises
Blackwood
Forcing 1 NT
Weak twos
Mini Roman
Negative Doubles
DONT
Inverted minors
Limit Raises

2 Hearts Negative Response (to 2 Club opening)

Any feedback would be appreciated. Also any ideas about practicing all these conventions online in a more realistic setting than BridgeBaron which is okay but...

Mini Roman is not a common convention.

2C*-2H as a negative is also not a common convention.

It wrong sides any heart contract and sometimes makes auctions involving hearts less accurate.


If you want to bid various hand types, BBO has bidding tables where you can bid assorted hands.

I have 1,000+ hands saved in groups of @25 to use with various conventions.


I did not see 4th suit forcing on your list. You really should add that convention to your list.

The forum poster wants a partner to play the conventions listed, not to have some analysis of whether they are right or wrong. I would be happy to play with any partner who listed his/her conventions on his profile like this. You even say on your own profile, spotlight7, that "I will play your profile". I wonder how you would cope with a Chinese player advertising Precision or Fantunes, or an older Italian player offering Neapolitan Club?

I play most of what you play. Exception being Mini Roman and DONT (usually use Cap.), though I am familiar with both. Also I normally play either 1430 or 3014 Blackwood, though I play straight Blackwood with some. Will also normally play Western Cue bids and short suit game tries. We would have to discuss limit raises with Bergen.

Let me know if you are interested.

The post stated that 'any feedback' would be appreciated "at the bottom."


I have 14 books on Precision so I would be happy to play Precision(it is my favorite system) with someone from China.


Fantunes is another option that is possible.


I learned three Italian systems several decades ago. The army library had little else on bridge.

Neapolitan, Roman Club or Blue Team Club are all possible.


I collect systems(I have 400+ bridge books) so almost anything is agreeable.


KS, Churchill Natural, 2/1. SAYC, multiple Precision versions, Romex, Goren, Roman Club,


Blue Team Club, Neapolitan, The Power System, and Acol are all possible choices.

I also can play Aunim Club(what Sabine Auken plays with her female partner)

Roth-Stone, Phantom Club and Purple Club(opening bids are 'overcall' style 8-15/16)

Can I offer you some advice my friend? It's never a good idea for a fledgling partnership to try out too
many gadgets in the beginning as it increases the likelihood of one partner forgetting what a convention means when it crops up.
Start out with a basic simple system and,if the partnership does progress,other devices can be added by mutual agreement
in the fullness of time.
It's not a sin to play bridge,but it's a crime if you play it badly(!) ;)
