The potential problem in viewing this hand is that since partner opens light in precision system,one may/ will underbid hand because we are unlikely to have game and do not wish to go down at 3 level. Also may view the K ofspade is duplication. The problem with that view is you should always bid the value of your hand, the k of spades may not be duplicated value and last time I looked, 9HCP with xx is limit raise hand. If you show limit raise, partner will bid 4s, making 6! The other hand will not look after simple 2s bid-not playing constructive raises.

Only a bridge player would call it a penalty card and probably knowing bridge players quickly yelled it. This illustrates one of the reasons I have heard many times people do not want to sit down at the table against duplicate players-seriously. We really need better social skills at the table. I mean this in the best manner to help our dying game. I would never call for penalty card. Why do people want to get good boards this way-how does this bring any satisfaction….oh yes because they got a good result…good grief.

I think it is automatic to bid with north hand. However, also really surprised that west does not x this. Although Kit is a world champion and has won many national championships,therefore dose not need anyones endorsement, a book I read in my first year of bridge was balancing by Mike Lawrence-states balancing with 4/4 and subsequently have found often winning action, because partner will usually lead your short suit.

Ken, It is frequently referenced in the Neurological Literature-albeit can not quote a specific article. I also have seen examples of this with 30 years of clinical experience. Cognitive activity, getting adequate sleep, nutrition and exercise. Obviously this life style also decreases risk of stroke and there is an disease called multi-infarct dementia. Also cardiovascular protective.

Max, I usually agree with you. Not on this. We all know of top world pairs not getting out of first day of LMP,BBR-albeit at low %, but not “very,very low”-it definitely happens.

If you are being facetious, derogatory, making fun of science based facts-I do not understand that. I was trying to be helpful and give very sound proven science/evidence based recommendations

Zach, you mirrored all my comments I was going to write. Judy, I think this portrays Bridge in a very negative ,embarrassing manner! Why does someone from ACBL/Marketing not write an accurate comment on this great, challenging game. I had the pleasure of training-internship,residency,fellowships at Mayo Clinic and run a Primary Stroke Center at a hospital and have stated many times-that I find this game more cognitively challenging than Neurology for the last 30 years. Neurologist also know, documented that keeping cognitively active delays/decreases chance of Alzheimer-name after Lois Alzheimer. I could go on…

Steve, anyone who has the pleasure of knowing you as a person and bridge player, would never believe you make a self serving comment. You have the highest ethics and always working to further the success of bridge in all your many endeavors.
