Landy is a very simple convention designed to interfere with opponent's 1NT opening. It has been described as sort of a "defensive Stayman".

Convention Edit

After right-hand opponent opens 1NT, a bid of 2 shows a two-suited hand with both majors. With good honours, 4-card suits are acceptable. Otherwise, 5-card suits are recommended. All other overcalls are natural. The double is for penalty, or could be considered an optional double.
