Bergen 4-Diamond bid
Hardy had a different way to show this hand. He started with 1NT, and then jumped to 4M.
Bergen 4-Diamond bid
Try Amazon. I have what I guess is a later edition of "Better Bidding With Bergen". I'm pretty sure he has this 4 bid in there. I'm also pretty sure it's in one of his more recent 40 pamphlet series on bidding, play, and defense.
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?

Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?

Dealing Cards
"The recommended procedure is that the cards be dealt in rotation, clockwise."
Would you call for the director?

Would you call for the director?

Would you call for the director?
There are, or were, regulations in some jurisdictions that even if you use some other method of hand evaluation, you have to be able to explain your bids in terms of Work HCP.
