about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

Partner fails to alert. Should you do the same?
Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately I can't edit the OP to reflect it
Goran Drazic's bidding problem: AJTx --- AJTxxxx QT
Sadly there's a chance partner will pass when both 4 and 5 are making, e.g. KQx xxx KQx ???? WIth RHO having 1 loser in each side suit (or the like)
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AQ93 QT --- AKJT963
I'm desperately late to this party, but to answer your questions: Over 4 I am planning to bid 6, which is cold opposite AKJxx and out. Over 4 I'll take my chances with a 6 exclusion ask. We might be off AK but I ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: Ax Q9xxx Kx 9xxx
1 did not show an unbalanced hand, and 2 is undiscussed but presumably natural (not a punt)
Stayman interference...
Opener's calls are natural (double is penalty) After Opener's pass, Responder's actions in the passout seat are also natural; 2N is invitational (suggesting but not promising 4 hearts) and 3 is 4 GF. 3 and 3 are natural and game-forcing
Daniel Lyder's bidding problem: ATx AJ7 AKQxx Ax
Chuck, please. "Nobody" plays that 1 can be THAT strong Which is not to suggest that I think bidding 2 here is bad
Do YOU play any of the "Worst Conventions?"
IMO the only real gain of Kokish (and it's a big one) is the ability to distinguish Opener's NT ranges without going past 2NT. When 2 is a game force, Opener (should) rebid 2NT with all balanced hands, so Kokish is no longer necessary.
The Worst Convention Ever
I would vote for Fishbein, but refuse to believe people actually play it
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: x --- AKxxxx KTxxxx
I elected to raise at the table, which was not a success when partner tabled: Qxx AQxxx Qxx xx
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: x --- AKxxxx KTxxxx
Good question! Yes, and yes
