ETM CANDY is now up - it combines:
a) Two-way club, either 17+ any or 11-13 with a five card major and balanced/semi-balanced
b) Canape 1M openings
c) 2C opening show 5+Ss and 4+Hs
d) 2M Fantunes openings - 9/10-13 five or longer suit, if just 5 then must have a singleton or void

Karen and I are surprised how much we have used Good Bad Gerber since we added it. Yesterday RHO opens 3C, I bid 3NT with minimum values, and Karen has a strong hand. She uses GBG and finds out I have a bad hand with one ace and parks us in 4NT, just high enuff. In addition if 4C was Stayman (or modified Stayman asking for strength and a major), we would have found a major fit and ran into banana splits and got ice creamed.
