Norberto Bocchi

Norberto Bocchi

Norberto Bocchi:   4club. I think, having passed before, 4club describes the hand well.

Thomas Bessis

Thomas Bessis

Thomas Bessis   4club. A bit optimistic, but describes my hand pretty well. It also has the advantage of putting pressure on opponents, which could make the mistake of defending to 5club while we could go down in 4spade suit.

Dennis Bilde

Dennis Bilde

Dennis Bilde   Dbl. I hope it’s an Italian double and my partner will not pass ☺

Diego Brenner

Diego Brenner

Diego Brenner   Dbl. Competitive. Over 3diamond suit or 3spade suit I can pass, because with the double I have described my hand.

Andrea Buratti

Andrea Buratti

Andrea Buratti      Pass. It is easy for my partner to have a balanced hand.

Fabio Lo Presti

Fabio Lo Presti

Fabio Lo Presti   4club. Showing that I am very short and the other two, with longer diamond. My hand should be more or less as mine, I didn’t talk after 1heart.
