Is 1M(in first/second seat)-2m;3m passable, in Standard bidding? (Opps are silent)
The document is quite clear that openers rebids are forcing but not so clear about how to bid various hand types. What we do (and what seems to be common among serious pairs playing something SAYC-like) is to use openers rebid of his major as a catch all. In this ...

Is 1M(in first/second seat)-2m;3m passable, in Standard bidding? (Opps are silent)
In SAYC (Standard American Yellow Card) it is forcing, because the 2/1 bidder promises a rebid unless opener's second call is at the game level. However, the vast majority of "Standard American" players do not know (or care) what's in SAYC. For them, this sequence is commonly ...
2H and 2S in fourth seatrd s
For me it shows a hand that will not make game opposite a passed hand unless there’s a fit for my long suit. This prevents partner from inviting on 10-11 with no fit (and encourages partner to invite with such hands if I open one and rebid two). Point ...
Showing spades after 1m (1!H)
For me this depends on how natural the minor suit opening is. If it’s 3+ I like double showing four spades and 1 showing five. Most hands without spades can raise openers minor. If the minor opening is 2+ (including all balanced hands in some range) then I ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
It's not at all clear what the right thing to measure might be at MP -- comparing just these two leads on double-dummy play isn't really the accurate thing to do. There could be pairs playing 3NT from the other side, or pairs playing a doubled partial our way ...
What percentage of the cost of attending ACBL Nationals are Card fees?
My estimates for Las Vegas looked like: $1800 for hotel (ten nights) $1200 for entries (I think they raised NABC to $30/session, two people for ten days) $1000 for food $2000 for flights (expensive to fly from Europe) So entries were only about 20% but the total cost seemed ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
You don’t need to beat the hand off the top. If partner has QJx or Qxx or Axx or maybe even Qx a heart lead will often work out. Even if opener can/will hold up in the suit, you will sometimes gain.
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
I did eliminate responders five-four majors hands. With respect to 4M-6m hands I think most people stayman on those? I don’t really know what the right assumptions are on shapely non slam hands. I tend to show my shape as much as methods allow (for me the given auction ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
I ran a slightly different simulation, allowing dummy to have any singleton and disallowing partner from holding a six-card spade suit (figuring he might've bid, especially given he's likely to have some values). My results: 5: Average tricks 2.91, 18.31% to set (3 is the same ...
