I was wrong bidding 4 Gerber 1 time.
It took 2 min to bid and play the hand and I thought we got ripped off for a no-brain ave board. It was 22- out of 25.

Does anybody remember how often 2 gets them to a better spot sometimes even 4 or 5 or 6 dias?

The Jan.1981 Bulletin had a tractor feed fan fold 360 print out on the cover. Was it already a boat anchor at that time?

Too many.
If partner has 3 aces.
If partner has 2 aces, it looks like an easy signoff in probably 6N.

If partner has 3 aces we have 12, 13, or 11 tricks.
Who'd of thunk that.

I wouldn't.
I play 1!N could be 10 hcp because you're better off not jumping with wastage in dias.
Having a playable spot in a suit even at the 1 level is more likely to come up than 1N being a good spot if partner has shortness in dias. I would probably bid 1 with that hand.
I don't have proof - does anybody? - that 1N is a better bid than 1.

On this auction, I have no sympathy for anybody that bids this way to make 2 on the nose a better result than playing 1N.

My opps tend to bid when they have 0/1 in my suit.
I want to get it done now. Everybody to the highest enough level which could be easily be 4 of a suit for them.

So many hcp.
But mostly suit oriented in spades.
If partner passes 1, we probably didn't have a game.

I think t/o doubles in 2nd seat are special cases more than any other. So I put priority in partnership confidence.

Partner used a lot of room. I can't comfortably try to show both I have less in the minors and more in hearts than I could have.

20/20 hind sight. Partner's spade qbids did nothing for me. Could partner have used the space after 2 to find out something about my hand. Or after 3 and 4, 4 is forcing.

Partner is trying to show or ask me something. I just can't figure out what.

In this case I may be just resulting, but 1!N shows positive values. So E will never pass 2. Since it is forcing, it is unlimited. 3 limits the hand to 9 or 10 tricks in spades or NT.

West gets the room to make slam tries.

I don't think partner's 3, then 4 should be just practicing qbiding just showing something and expecting an opinion from me. 5 is a control in hearts - that's it.

E/W need to upgrade their partnership.
W should bid 2 over 1N with the confidence that E will play him for a hand too strong to overcall spades.
2 is not this hand.
Sure you can blame somebody after this for not fixing a fundamental violation.

If my partner strongly claimed this is a t/o double, I would try to avoid discussing it. I will never agree that it is.

No.

On my screen too.

Remember the old IBM 360 core dumps?

It seems like having a wide range for 3M makes it hard to play.

I guess it wasn't the A or T. Don't lead small singletons?

Self-extinguishing.
So many other smoldering subthreads.

I approach this as experimental. Will it be “whatever” or something?
