Felix Shen's bidding problem: AJ98 K AQ754 T42
This is a simple and good agreement to have.
Felix Shen's bidding problem: AJ98 K AQ754 T42
Your top bidding priority in this auction is leaving room for responder to describe his hand, not describing yours. Responder needs the room, not you. Max bidding room adds clarity to any choice he makes. For example, if you can rebid 2 without showing 5, responder can chose between ...
Felix Shen's bidding problem: AJ98 K AQ754 T42
I abstained because the preceding auction created a high-level guessing game. 1. After the artificial GF 2, opener should rebid 2NT to limit his hand and leave more room for responder to describe the nature of his game force. If opener first rebids 2N, suggesting 12-14 semi-balanced, when responder ...
Walter Schmid's bidding problem: T84 9843 QJ984 5
Responder has an easy 4 raise over 3, describing his hand.
Geeske Joel's bidding problem: AQJ6 642 KQJ92 K
At IMPs I would open 1N without any qualms. It is a closer decision at matchpoints, but frankly, I'd much rather get my hand off my chest with one bid than waste my brain cells trying to guess whether today is the day partner bid 1N on a bad ...
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AQT5 AK2 K4 K764
If we belong in 6C, partner has space to explore for it after 4N.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: Q AJT93 K4 KJT74
Double is preferable to 4N since our best spot will frequently be 4SX. However, I judge pass to be slightly better than either.
Jim Munday's bidding problem: xxx x Jxxx AKQxx
Although I would use slightly different language, I support Craig's position. After the preempt, IMO the top bidding priority is distinguishing high from low ODR raises, not distinguishing responder's offense ranges (e.g., 4 = LR to min FR and 4 = stronger). I would not describe 4 ...
Jim Munday's bidding problem: xxx x Jxxx AKQxx
If they raise to 5, they got me. But if they only raise to 4, I will just bid 4 if the auction passes back to me. An overbid? Yes, a little. But it's the same overbid the 4 jumpers made and I get the ...
Andy Bowles's bidding problem: Q6 AK97 8 A98752
4 will get the obligatory 4. I think the odds are against beating that, so I'll give them a harder guess: 5.
