Harald Berre Skjæran's bidding problem: KQT952 Q6 A73 AK
i want to offer pard a choice of games, so I need a forcing call. If you play 2 is natural, then 3 should be artificial and forcing. If you like to overcall 1 on a hand like: KQTx, x, Kxxxx, Axx, then 2 should be ...
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: A984 83 Q975432 ---
Frances, 7-card support, a side ace and void does not constitute a strong hand? Granted it is the wrong void, but even so being laydown for 7 diamonds would not be a complete shock..
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: A984 83 Q975432 ---
Sorry Henry, I can't bear to look at a hand where I bid spades and then never bid my seven card side suit. I guess you need 8 cards to raise diamonds?
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: Q7 AQT62 K42 KJ2
dbl planning to rebid 1NT
Responding to snapdragon double with 2-5
AQ, xxxx, KTxxx, xx looks like an obvious 1 to me. AQx, xxxx, KTxxx, x looks like an equally obvious 2 to me. As for why you haven't seen it, Snapdragon does not come up all that often in the first place.
Responding to snapdragon double with 2-5
Not only can 1 be on 2, I think it is frequently on 2. With a known 8-card spade fit, opener would often be bidding 2 to prevent LHO from rebidding 2. The logic of the auction is similar to this more common one; 1 -- (1 ...
From the old days
Yes Henry, at 17 Brad would have made it, but he would have taken an extra 5 minutes trying to find a line to score the last trick with the 7.
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: AKQ862 QT6 A KT2
My use of the word "failed" was not intended to judge their bid. It is a simple statement of fact: Responder made a bid that did not clarify his values immediately. That is it. No judgment implied. A 1 response is not a bad bid. The actual auction is ...
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: AKQ862 QT6 A KT2
Peg my point was that anyone playing 1950's bridge has no trouble wit this hand. They have the easiest and most obvious SJS in their methods, and it serves well because the followup auction is much easier for opener knowing that responder holds a big hand. I understand that ...
Negative Double opposite 1NT opening
It depends on colors. Plating 12-14, at white on white, i reopen on any hand with a small dub in their suit. At vul on vul you have to be more cautious.
