  1. Hands 4 and 8 have the second suit and the splinter responders rebids reversed for the best bidding. The system needs updated in this regard. After an implied fit (2H rebid) responder is better placed with immediate splinters and the jump to show a second suit.

  2. What point count for the Michael’s Cue Bids, as system doesn’t say!? Some play that it’s weak (7-11) or strong (15/16+) but not intermediate others differently and it would be nice to know with these!

  3. notice it was already ! Hand #2

  4. What’s the point, as there was no score table for last month in the Monthly Winners?
    Even none-Prime members should get to see their scores and the answers.
    By all means leave the panel’s comments for Prime members only.
