1M-1N; 3m and then?
My answers: 1. Yes, but sometimes limited space will prevent this. 2. Yes. 3. Slam. The range of 3m is pretty narrow, we don’t need a “re-invite” especially one that bypasses 3nt. 4. Obviously occasionally useful, but I wouldn’t do it. Much more useful to be able to ...
Delayed Alerts: Theory and Practice
1-2NT(natural)-4. Suppose I hold good but not very long clubs. If 4 is a suit, doubling is dangerous (they may make 4xx despite my having tricks in the trump suit), and besides I’m likely to be in lead against a minor suit contract ...
Is This a Legitimate Question?
It’s fine to ask opponents about their balancing style, or what they expect for 3. But the way this question was posed in the post seemed inappropriate and sort of accusatory. Don’t pose your questions in a way that presumes an answer... this seemed almost like asking ...
I apologize for this question
The one I used to see a lot was when stayman over 2NT was not alertable but puppet stayman was. People often seem to forget whether they agreed puppet or not. So they bid 3 and if partner alerts they know puppet is on, whereas no alert and it ...
Suggested Defense Against MOSCITO 1D and 1H transfer openings: Balancing seat
My own idea, although it seems common for people to use 1 as takeout of hearts in similar situations. Here it seemed better to double with the heart takeout though (more common hand type, better odds to “get them” etc) so I just swapped some bids.
Suggested Defense Against MOSCITO 1D and 1H transfer openings: Balancing seat
Not clear on this defense if 1 is takeout of diamonds or of hearts. Also not clear if it’s forcing. The double and 1 and 1nt bids potentially overlap a lot. Do we really need three calls for a weak notrump? It would also be good to ...
Is this system bad or illegal? (EDIT)
The only issue I see with legality is the missing 4441 hands. They definitely create a disclosure issue — if you describe a hand as balanced or as 5+ in some suit but it’s actually also the normal way to bid 4441 that’s not really on the level. Probably ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
Yes, SEF is fine. Pretty much any strong bid and responses is fine. The problem is that artificial bids which could be weak (less than 10HCP or so) are severely restricted. The new charts allow such bids if they have a known suit when weak, but Multi and the like ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
According to WBF policy, the following conventions are all Brown Sticker. This effectively bans them outside of top flight TEAM events (roughly the same events that would allow Multi in ACBL). 2 showing a weak hand with either diamonds or hearts 2 showing a weak hand with either ...
Cost/benefit analysis of redoubling 1 notrump
The assumption seems to be that this is some sort of poker game, where the doubling side must guess whether to run. My experience is that this isn’t really true. Advancer in 4th seat will either: 1. Fast pass = “I have some help” and now they let you play ...
