New suit forcing after overcall or not?
I play forcing in one partnership where our agreement is for super-sound overcalls. I think forcing is only viable playing super-sound overcalls. We won't ever break 50% in regional open pairs but probably would consistently place in the Gold Rush.
ACBL Live über alles
I wonder how this is going to affect the club I play at. The director does not use e-mail, has no computer or mobile phone, and currently sends in results by mail once a month.
Trying it on ?
Form of scoring please.
An exhortation. - Just open the %$^&^% bidding!!!
The average club player believes bridge scoring works roughly like this: You get 1 point for bidding and making a part score You get 2 points for bidding and making a game You get 3 points for bidding and making a slam You get -10 points for going down in ...
Responsive Doubles - What is "standard"?
I voted "other" - by which I mean: there is no standard; each of these two alternatives is preferred by a substantial number of pairs.
Do you open all 12-counts?
Bill - the dynamics of this club are that there are a few expert declarers who really can pull off 3N with 11 opposite 11 (especially when defenders aren't expecting it) often enough to make it worth bidding - and everyone else emulating them because it works for the good players ...
Do you open all 12-counts?
I play in one incredibly conservative partnership that almost never opens a 12 count w/o a 5 card suit. I think we'd open KJ KJx QJxx QJxx, but I think we'd pass QJ KJx QJxx QJxx. I play in an aggressive Precision partnership that opens almost all ...
Which grand is better? And how do you play it?
Frankly, as South, I wouldn't think of North's 6 as an offer to play, and, perhaps slightly befuddled by similar sequences after keycard, there might even be doubt in my mind as to whether it shows or asks for third round control in diamonds.
Winning At Wilcox
I also thought about the J back, but will partner unblock from QT9x or cover with AT9x (thinking we have KJ3...)?
Yet another what does 4NT mean
I've switched to the adage "when the kibitzers don't know what trumps are, 4N is natural" It does leave you guessing about key cards sometimes, but you're not guessing about general strength, which is also frequently unknown in these auctions.
