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.

Marco's model yacht in Kensington Gardens Round Pond. It sails on Sundays. Designed by Marco - many passersby comment on its beauty. Last Sunday it caught the eye of the Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park Bird blogger - see his blog for Sunday the 21st October 2018 and scroll down until you get to the video. He was filming a national model yacht event across the pond when - in his words - he noticed something unusual on the other side of the pond. He looked through his binoculars and "noticed this fabulous boat". He said this was his star video of the day. Marco is member of The London Model Yacht Club.

Have you ever tried the hand replay facility on this website? Just above every traveller and below the hand diagram there is a 'Play it Again' button. This starts Bridge Solver Online (BSOL) which lets you do this. Full details on using BSOL to "play" a hand in double dummy mode is available in this user guide, which has been written by Rees Mitchell for the website users at Vanderbilt Bridge Club, in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
To see cross-imps in a teams event click on the 'Analysis' above the ranking list. You will see a pairs ranking list showing cross-imps for each pair. Alternatively click on 'Play it again' under a hand diagram then 'Results Analysis - All Pairs'.
