Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
AKJTxx, Jx QJ9x, A .... 3!C doubled
CA followed by High spade. Doesn't matter what pard plays. BTW, Does everybody agree with reopening dbl?
ATB - aggressive slam bidding
Both. South should not consider a heart contract. Xfer followed by splinter is better. Now N should sign off with a soft min.
Fielder's Choice
Kit, what do you do in 1st seat with that hand? Does vul matter?
End of the Road to the GNT Final Four
The low club lead by Noble on the last hand is one of the best leads I have ever seen. Too bad it has been overshadowed by what happened at the other table and it didn't matter.
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

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.
The Adventures of Mrs. I. Fixum
Everyone has been fixed so I will give you one that just happened in the BBO ACBL game. Opener had a 4-4-3-2 16 count, opens 1D. Responder has a 2-4-2-5 12 count responds 2C. Opener bids 3NT. Hearts 4-1 offsides, club finesse on.
Toronto NABC NEW hotel. Just $149 CDN ($111-112 US) plus taxes
Many years ago(think last time the 2001 Nationals) we used to stay at the Grange hotel. It had cooking facilities, free parking, and reasonably clean. We walked both ways, about 25 min and seemed safe then. I see the name has changed to Studio 6(nothing to do with ...
