In the dark. (ACBL)
You’re too worried about negative repercussions from asking. Might opponents take some inference? Yes, but the easiest solution is to (sometimes) randomly ask without a reason and let them fix themselves. You’ll never get in trouble for asking. Might it help opponents sort out a misunderstanding? Yes but ...
Multi Opening Two-Bids
I’m not trying to spring anything on people here. I mentioned this when the new charts were posted for comment, mentioned it again when they were approved, had a separate thread about comparing the two methods (intermediate multi and weak two vs. intermediate two and weak multi) and now ...
Multi Opening Two-Bids
The interesting thing is that if we switch to: 2M = Natural weak 2 = “rule of 19” 9+ to 13 one major Then we can play this method on the Open chart, without even a suggested defense! This is slightly worse than our current method but is probably what we ...
Multi Opening Two-Bids
We’re no longer in the US, although we plan to play in the summer NABC. Anyway we use: 2 = weak two in either major (4-9 HCP normally 6) 2M = Natural 9-13 with 6-card suit The two-suited weak 2M bids are more commonly played here, but I haven’t ...
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
One thing to keep in mind is that our overcall often won't end the auction. This has a couple implications: 1. Responder will often want to double, either for takeout or penalty. Opinions are split as to which use of double is better (the modern trend being more towards ...
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
We play Meyerson against strong notrump. It's as follows: 2, 2, 2 = all natural, normally single suited 2 = both majors 2NT = both minors 3 = natural single-suited with a wide range X = one major and one minor; at least 5-4 where either suit can be ...
Sandwich Cue-bid of Opener by Unpassed Hand
The “right” agreement might be natural if opener shows 4 (or less) in the suit and two-suited if five, except in situations where a psych is likely when we’re back to natural. But this seems pretty complex (and subject to some weird corner cases) and I just play these ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
In 1952, Edgar Kaplan's article in the bridge world "New Science" was published. This article is often credited with drawing attention to the "old black magic" whereby bridge players (at all levels) would read partner's mannerisms, tempo, and tone of voice to determine the sort of hand he ...
World Class Lines of Play
World class lines of play often depend on the auction. If 2 showed 5-5 majors the squeeze is a huge favorite. But a lot of declarers probably had an auction where East bid 1 and hearts breaking 4-3 were a serious possibility (causing squeeze to fail but cross ...
Psychic Bids by US Players during the 1957 Bermuda Bowl and Related Deals
The double is a little risky sure, but even if there’s no psych we could have ace-king ace and two heart tricks quite easily, plus partner might have something since they are not in game. And if he psyched (which he’s already done many times this match) we ...
