Defense is hard
What's your bidding style over opponents' 1NT opening? My thought is that if partner has 4+5 (and it seems like about a ten-count) then he might have had another call available. If partner has 4+4 he probably would lead a spade. So the ...
Precision - NT ranges w/o Kokish 1!H and w/o 2NT strong/balanced?
Our non 1 responses are basically 5-11 (mostly not natural, 1 is 4+ spades for example). There are a few design goals here: 1. Helps if 4th hand intervenes 2. Can relay on semipositives without losing a step if opener has extras. 3. Balanced GF responder gets to ...
Precision - NT ranges w/o Kokish 1!H and w/o 2NT strong/balanced?
They are a little weird: 1NT = 14-16 in 1st/2nd 1...1NT = 17-bad 21 1...1M = good 21+ if balanced The reason for this is that our 1-1 sequence is either 0-4 hcp or balanced GF (or some very strong hands) and not the usual 0-7 ...
Precision - NT ranges w/o Kokish 1!H and w/o 2NT strong/balanced?
We use something in between, where 1 is 4+ forcing one round and includes 21+ balanced with four spades, and 1 is either 4+ hearts or 21+ balanced without four spades. Responder generally treats 1 as showing hearts (it is usually 4+ since the balanced ...
Systems Poll
My favorite system is the quite complex five card majors and strong club I developed with Sam Ieong. But he’s temporarily retired from bridge and I’ve moved to another continent so I’ll answer the system I actually play these days! Five card majors, strong NT, NOT 2 ...
X/NT Inversion
I think siding is generally a problem with "notrump for takeout" type methods, including things like Raptor, Overcall Structure, and even Good-Bad 2NT. If 3NT is ever a possible contract, it will probably need to be declared by partner and that is no longer available.
One "Big Idea" - Ratings
Despite having a pretty high rating, I'm not a fan of the Colorado Springs system. There are a number of issues and ways to manipulate it. In particular: 1. The linearity assumption in difficulty is not correct. The reality is that it's hard to actually average 70% (for ...
Who should act and how?
If you're getting a bad result, it's probably because people tried 4 and failed on the 5-0 heart break? It's a pretty reasonable game especially if diamonds are not 2-2. It seems like 3 is the only playable spot for your side and that could ...
Bid-a-Lot Precision
I've suggested a system like this on several occasions when people complain that they can't play forcing pass, and that forcing pass is "all about the light openings" and not trying to get good boards from the fert bid. The fact that the forcing-pass advocates never seem to ...
Big Ideas
A number of these ideas have been tried before without much success. These include: Advertise, Promote, Sponsor (remember "Bridge is Cool"? Ugh) Document Health Benefits (several articles about this, all dubious science) Expert Player Guild (basically a pro bridge union, players didn't like it) Improve Teaching Results (seems like ...
