We have all got used to 'announcing' the range of partners opening bid of 1NT. You might be less sure about 2NT: Opening bid of 2NT is announced "20 to 22" or appropriate range. Stayman (4 card) and transfers are announced the same way as after 1NT. 5-card stayman is alerted. All this is summarised in the EBU Announcing and Alerting table.
We have now moved to a new release of Bridgewebs which has player performance graphs on the Personal Analysis page.
Well done to Derek and his partner Paul Hackett for coming 3rd in Cross-imps in Gold Coast International Invitational Pairs, part of 5th Commonwealth Nations Bridge Competition held on Gold Coast in Australia from 13th to 18th February.
