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.
