The Best Convention Ever
Amusing how many listed here might make my "worst convention" list. In any case, while not exactly modern, the takeout double is clearly the best convention of all time! The modern approach of applying it in more and more auctions also seems like a winner to me.
NABC Online Tournament
I'm most disappointed by the timing (why not after the NABC?) and the use of best hand (how is that bridge?) -- otherwise I like the idea. Use of robots makes an individual less random.
The Worst Convention Ever
It does seem pretty bad! Some issues: 1. Big fit for openers second suit: AKxxx x AKxx Axx vs x xxxx Qxxxx xxx, or even give opener a 5th diamond instead of a club. 2. Really bad hand with fit: xxxx xxxx xxx xx opposite either KQxxx x AKx Axxx ...
Second level freebids
Forcing one round. Transfers are good if opener usually has a balanced hand (some 1m openings) but I'm not fond of them otherwise. The problem I have found with NFB is that there are really three types of hands: game force, invitational, and weaker. With forcing free bids, the ...
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: K KT AKT4 AT9853
Opening 2 seems pretty likely to miss a game or slam. 6-4 shapes are powerful if a fit materializes, and it's not clear you will ever find a diamond fit after opening 2, or that partner won't pass with a bunch of hands that make game ...
The Many Ways To Bid Spades
Here are Sam and my agreements on advances of double for what it's worth: 2NT...3 = invitational with four spades and a heart stopper ... direct 3 = invitational with 5+ spades, or with four spades and no stopper 2NT...3 = 4+ spades GF; either COG with a ...
4 raises available before reaching 2S, showing extras or showing shape ?
I can't completely tell what all the sequences are, but I'd say three-card raise extras is probably the most important, because you don't want to commit to the three-level without a definite fit (four-card raise extras it's probably okay). Is it possible to show the 3-6 ...
The meaning of a balancing double over a NT overcall of 1C.
There are other calls available; for example 2. If this is a normal reverse (extras with hearts and the minor) and double is takeout for the majors which can be fairly minimum, it seems like we are losing out in the following ways: 1. If partner has a terrible ...
What Am I Missing?
While I agree that the proliferation of tournaments and the number of parallel small events is bad, I'm not really seeing this masterpoint issue. Where did a one-session pairs pay as much as a KO? There are a number of cases where the winner of a two-session pairs pays ...
Responses after a Forcing NT is overcalled
Two thoughts here: 1. If double is penalty, my call with a takeout hand will not allow partner to choose to defend. How much does this cost us? 2. If double is takeout, if I have a penalty hand I will need to rely on partner to balance. How often ...
