The Poles have it.

In The Polish Premier League (Segment 3/6)

This happened at one table.

At the other table.

Playing the Polish Club (One club forcing for one round. Either weak NT with 12-14 HCP or natural or any strong hand),

Both East use their specialized spade bid to let partner know their hand type. Both West got to declare the no-trump game.

*Three Spade (Relay to 3NT). 

*Two Spade (A 2NT bid with non-positional hand. You should play NT.) 


The Singapore Flyer is the world’s largest observation wheel. There are 28 air-conditioned capsules. Takes 30 minutes to complete each rotation.

I do not see anything special about these auctions. In 2/1, the sequence would be:
Responder shows 5 diamonds and balanced (+-) 12 HCP. Opener shows minimum balanced hand not interested in diamonds.
There is no need for responder to bid 2NT in the first round just because he has random 11-22 count.

This leaves the other 2 sequences for hands much harder to bid:
1C-2S strong jump shift (showing solid spades or fit jump or bid NT hand with spades; 2nd round clarifies the hand type).
1C-3S spade stiff or void in support of clubs.

I like the poictures too.
