This is tne new system recently published by Richard Granville and David Burn. In brief, it's a F*nt*n*s-like system with unlimited one-bids (except for 1 openings which are "standard"), and "strong weak-two bids" a la F-N. System summary available here:

If interested in giving it a spin, send me a PM, or look for me on BBO.

The Felicity says 'No' :) But good luck. (I'm still trying to get my head around Walsh/Transfer Walsh bidding that my regular partner wants to try out.)

Hi Michael,
After playing Mosca Club in 2016-2017, I played Naturelle (by David Kresh, another Fantunes offshoot) with a local partner in 2018 and we found it difficult to assimilate the system and bidding over 10-14 two-bids was very poor and gave us lots of bottom boards in pairs.

In 2019 we are playing NBC (Canape Club after George Coffin) with weak NT and intermediate 2s (similar to Fantunes but no singleton or void).

My favorite system is still any Transfer Strong Club with 4-cd majors (opening and transfers) and canape of course.
Ultra Relay: see Daniel's web page: https://bridgewithda...19/07/Ultra.pdf
C3: Copious Canape is still my favorite system. (Ultra upgraded)

Played a Mosca (Nightmare-Fantunes-Millennium like) system with canapé, 11-14 NT with Keri Invites and Intermediate 2 bids (10-14), & 15+ 1 opener with transfer negatives @ 1-level & transfer positives @ the 2- and 3-levels. Canape after opening 1 or 1 (into a minor suit only). Played Naturelle in 2018. 2019 playing Canapé Club: 1 promises 4+ and 10+ hcp and is forcing 1 round (after George Coffin's NBC: Natural Big Club).

Playing Transfer Precision with Steve Moese, 2019.

Some of the Fantunes bids work a lot better with a little Fantunes magic sauce.

That was my opinion once they were proven to be "dirty"
