Recommend that only recent texts be used for bidding, as bidding techniques have changed in recent years with the advent of the Two-Over-One system. In addition, experts may disagree on how to bid certain holdings and conventions. You and partner should agree on which convention, technique, or interpretation to use with your basic system. Some examples are
1. Jump shifts: weak, strong, or weak in competition only?
2. Ignore the opponents’ double, redouble, or Jordan?
3. Splinters on 12+ points or 13+?
4. What does 2C over 1D mean?
5. What does 1 major-3 minor mean?
6. Blackwood, Roman Keycard 0314, or RKC 1430?
7. What does 1 major-3NT mean? 1 minor-3NT?
