What's this DBL?
You're right, I got caught up in assuming partner had his/her bid rather than it being far more logical that they just misbid or forgot an agreement.
What's this DBL?
Richard: I can see that being actually what happened at the table, but I don't think this auction is inconsistent with partner having a great hand with 3 spades ala OPs statement of their side's agreements. If we assume partner has his/her bid, this is an interesting ...
What's this DBL?
I HATE "we have not discussed it" as the reply here. Of course you haven't discussed this exact sequence but it could hardly mean anything but values and willingness to defend (i.e. penalty). 5 is an interesting call (assuming we're not off the rails). Is Axx ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: KQJ875 AKT K AK2
Having spades as our suit makes this easy to open 2 because we have a cheap rebid in context. I'd even argue that 2-2-2 is better than any auction you could perpetrate after opening 1 since you seem forced into a 3 card jump ...
Freak Deal appeal
West has already bid his/her hand twice, so I'm not sure what the need for a huddle was. As for what the break "suggests," 7 is third on my list of suggested calls (X first, P second) as bidding 7 to make is optimistic but BITs ...
ATB - missed thin game
As E, after hearing the W X, I would be disappointed when partner didn't turn up with a trump stack and I was soon writing -180 or -380 on the score sheet.
ATB - missed thin game
West is certainly blameless. Any actions other than what (s)he took seem ridiculous to me. I would listen to arguments that East should make a stronger move than 3 with a double fit, no diamond losers, and the major intermediates almost certainly working. That all said, I hardly ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: KT52 9532 QJ632 ---
I don't think we're surviving a trump lead here, and even without one the game will be thin, so I pass. Since it's a club game, I might kick it in against weak opponents expecting them to be hesitant to lead from an honor in trumps.
Any Blame?
From the get-go, I'd probably plan on driving to game with the East hand no matter what, but... After the correction to 3 I would 100% raise to 4 with the East hand since I'm worth more knowing the fit is there. As Dan said above me ...
How would you bid these hands.
This is what I would do except I'd shift the last two bids down a level. I would probably miss the somewhat-decent slam. After N's X, they have a nice minimum and should try to get opener to choose a minor suit game, and after S's 4 ...
