Full Disclosure During a Simul-Forget
You explain the failure to alert and do not explain your own misbid. After the hand, a director can adjust the score if he judges that the opponents were damaged by your actions. Players are supposed to follow the law like automatons and allow directors to make correction in any ...
Three Layers of Improvement
Really nice article Sartaj! I loved your article's focus on mental process, rather than on result.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: JT QT875 QT9 JT4
4. Partner has a rock. His hand was worth a strong jump-shift, but since he was 3-suited he feared a 2 rebid would cramp the auction.
Mario Fonzo's bidding problem: QT T97652 Q AT98
I think 2 is quite clear since it gives us two shots at game. If partner has 5-3-4-1 shape, or similar we may get to a heart game, and if he is 6-1-4-2 he will rebid 2 which we can happily raise, perhaps even to game if we ...
Sriram Narasimhan's bidding problem: KJ5 QJ AJT94 QT3
The only options I consider are pass and 1NT.
Hemant Bhatia's bidding problem: AKJ74 Q75 J9 543
Fast Arrival is not the problem. Using Fast Arrival when partner is unlimited is the problem. Fast arrival is valuable when game is known to be the limit and strain has been established. 1 -- 1 1NT -- 4 Qx, AQxxxxx, x, Kxx 4 is a fast arrival ...
Better 2/1 Bidding -- The Nebulous 2!C bid
The 3 splinter consume so much room that it needs to have a narrow range. If 3 shows like 11-13 HCP, then responder should be well placed to decide whether to sign off in 3NT, 4 or 5 or ask for KC (6KC responses) with 4 ...
David Loeb's lead problem: KQ 95432 T A9432
we have a couple of entries. Seems like a low heart to encourage a heart return is called for.
Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: T96 K2 K AKQJ952
Vulnerable games are for bidding.
Jeff Miller's lead problem: K5 AJ93 975 Q954
Since this appears to be a gambling 3NT, I will try an ace.
