|Michaels Overcall / Schroeder Overcall|
In KZN, an overcall convention that is commonly played is referred to "KZN Ladies Michaels"
The convention consists of the following set of bids
1) 1C overcalled 2C means 5+ diamonds and a 5+ card major
This was referred to as Michaels during SAWBA, and the incorrect
name was picked up by Sid Ismael (who was TD)
This convention is correctly called Schroeder. An explanation of what the bid actually means will suffice.
The bidding sequences for Michaels overcalls are as follows
1) 1C overcalled 2C means two 5+card majors
This can be referred to as Michaels, but again it is probably better to explain the bid.
