What are your thoughts on double vs bidding 3D?


Mine are as follows:

If partner has 5+ clubs, it will probably be winning to double. If partner has 5 hearts, it will probably be winning to double.

If partner passes, then doubling is probably winning.


However, partner could still be bidding 3C and 3H (with, say, 4-4-2-3 or 4-3-2-4 respectively). In which case, if he has those hand types, 3D would be winning.


And as Kevin R. said above, bidding 3D and then doubling 3S will really get your hand across, and I think you are strong enough to do that.


I'm probably missing things from my analysis though.

1D-(1S)-(2S)-3D-(3S)-(p)-x-3N

Do you think 3N is artificial or natural? Partner failed to respond 1N, yet he may have wanted to defend 1S.


What type of hand do you think meets the requirements for a 1N overcall, yet would still pass?

Somehow I knew before reading the article that “Superman” was referring to the GOAT Michael R.

My U16 team two years ago had 5 out of 6 players with complete Chinese heritage. I liked to call ourselves China 4.

LOL, my bad. My geography knowledge is horrible. Last night, I thought a person could drive from Boston to Italy.

Jeff:

I am a SiVY kid.

First, thank you for your work in promoting youth bridge in England.


>1. This is one comment upon which I am hoping you can elaborate: “This requires getting the administration to agree, having a specific teacher (or other staff member) commit to hosting, and then finally signing up enough kids.”

With bridge having limited interest not only among the generation of youth but also the generation to which, for the most part, belong their parents and teachers, how did you gain interest from administrators or teachers to commit to hosting?

You may be asking a different question, but I'm interpreting it as a general question on how to get a teacher to agree to host a club in their question.


It isn't difficult to find a teacher in a school to do this. I am the current president of the bridge club in my high school, and I found my teacher advisor simply by asking her. Most teachers are willing to host any club as long as they don't have to do anything.

I think it is a lot more difficult though to find a teacher if you plan to do an afterschool club, as less teachers are willing to stay. I would think you just have to find a teacher who already knows what bridge is.


But really, all you need is a dedicated student who is willing to spend time to find a teacher to host.

True that. THe only reason I agreed to go to my first pizza party was because it was “pizza” and “party.”

Hey Debbie,

Nice article! And pretty good timing too; I now have something to do while I wait at the airport (Atlanta Trials HYPE HYPE).


Interestingly, I also wrote about the book “The Cardtuner” in one of my BW articles. (https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/my-journey-in-bridge-2-oq5ogeaeox/)

It really is quite something else.
