Question
Is a bid of the gambling three no trump alertable. what is considered to be the standard meaning of a three no trump open.

Answer
Hi,

An opening Gambling 3NT bid is alertable as are any other non standard 3NT opening bids. The standard meaning of a 3NT opening is 25-27 balanced. However, relatively few advanced players play this standard meaning since it takes up three levels of bidding space and leaves little room for slam exploration. These strong balanced hands usually are opened with a strong 2C bid.

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
