Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Low Road
My point is the benefit of these methods is to be able to show invitational plus values immediately in a particular suit, being able to make a TO dbl with 4-4 and be able to play jumps as weak, not invitational. All you are giving up is the ability to ...
Low Road
I like to play X of 1S is takeout. Lower cue is invitational + in lower of 2 remaining suits. Higher cue is invitational + in higher of 2 remaining suits. Jumps are weak. I changed from X of 1S being penalty as psyching in this sequence seems to be occurring less ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: 7xxx T9xxx Kx Tx
I would bid 2D if I can bar pard from bidding again, but since I can't I pass 2C as I know 2D isn't getting passed out.
PENALTY OR TAKEOUT? DIRECT/INDIRECT SEAT
Should have agreement in your partnership Traditionally both were penalty but more are now playing both dbls as takeout. Whatever you agree, they should either be both penalty or both takeout, not one of each.

Danger Hand First
Why not dbl 3D? You have poor spade spots with the auction suggesting a likely bad break, and controls. Even if they have 8 trumps, the law says we are getting a decent number if we make game. If pard has close to the weakest possible diamond holding and good ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KT32 753 AQJT T9
An obvious 4S bid now, and an obvious 1D opener in 3rd seat.
Best Line to limit Trump suit losers to one
