What is your defensive method against opp's NT opening? Does it change depending on strong or weak NT? Mike lawrence mentioned that Erik Kokish has lots of idea about this topic and he also said someone should try to persuade Erik Kokish to spare a few months to sit down and write a book about this topic. Perhaps Fred can do this job?:D

For example:


suppose x is value showing dbl here

2C: Stayman?

..., too many to cite here.

Even against a 10-12 notrump in first position NV/V, I would try to show pattern first.

I prefer
DBL four spades and a longer minor
2 both majors
2 a long major
2 five hearts and a minor
2 five spades and a minor
2N don't really know, maybe a blockbuster
3 natural
3 natural

I don't like the idea of doubling on power, it kind of wastes a bid only to lead to a random result whether it's your hand or their hand. Besides, RHO already knows more about the better/least bad denomination for his side (and may learn even more about it) than your side will ever do.

I sure would like to hear whar Eric has to say, or write, about this subject. he does have very good ideas.

so much the better. If there is restlessness, I am pleased. Then let there
be ideas, and hard thought, and hard work.”
