Bridge & other card games/1C OPENER
RECENTLY OPP OPENED 1C. OPPs PARTNER ALERTED SAYING OPENER'S CLUB LENGTH COULD BE ZERO! AND THAT OPENER IS SAYING SHE HAS NO 4-CARD
MAJOR. I PRESUME THAT 1D SAYS THAT SHE HAS A 4-CARD MAJOR.
(WE ALL PLAY 5-CARD MAJORs)
EVER HEAR OF THIS? AND I'M TALKING ABOUT THE MONTREAL RELAY.
I have heard of the Montreal Relay but in that system a 1C opener denies holding a 5 card major but could very well have four cards in either or both majors. After all, if opener has no four card major as well as zero clubs he would need to have at least seven diamonds. The Montreal Relay is described below.
