Opening Non-Standard NT ranges

Greetings, robot battlers!

I would like to illustrate some hands which feature either opening 2NT on 19 or opening 1NT on 14. In my opinion, this is winning tactics when playing against robots.

Charles Collins gave me this first hand. He opened 2NT with 19 HCP and got raised to 7. Robot partner had 16 with five spades. But with normal splits it was cold. Opening a heart will make it a little difficult to get to the grand slam.

I played the other hands myself. If you have any interesting hands to submit, please do so. I need the material. Jeff Kroll has submitted a ton of hands and I am very thankful. All you have to do is send me the handviewer link, it is easy, just contact me if you need help.

I stream every day at 6:00 am so if you are up that early and want to watch me play robot bridge, tune into

Twitch is the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers.

Lastly, here are a couple of videos where I had fun against the robots:

The next ACBL robot championship will be held November 19 to 21, so keep practicing against those bots.
