Eric Rodwell, editor of the Topic Collection, was intrigued by Lauria’s Topic: “I have never played Gazilli in part because before now I never knew exactly how it worked. I’m very excited that our site has the key to one of the most elusive expert conventions, in such detail!”

Gazzilli à la Lauria has been published today on  In this Topic many times world champion Lorenzo Lauria deals in depth with rebid options after 1H-1S, 1H-NT and 1S-1NT. His version of the Gazzilli convention especially leads to precise bidding when points between opener and responder are split 15-10, 16-9, 17-8.

1♠ – 1NT

 2♠ or 3♠ ?

1♠ – 1NT

Gazzilli à la Lauria supplies solutions for these and many other bidding sequences. The method enables a partnership to describe accurrately almost any handtypes of opener and responder. It therefore doesn’t come as a surprise that experts more and more make use of this approach or of similar methods.
