Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
We MUST count tens when I am flat: 1. At first or second seat with 10 or 11 HCPs. Definitely I do not open with 11HCPs and no tens. Definitely I open with 10HCPs and 3 tens. 2. I have 14HCPs and consider 1NT opening. In the extreme case I ...
Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
There are several facts that have to be taken into account while applying Cowan's exceptional and very difficult research to adjusting HCPs scoring. First of all 5-4-3-2-1 scoring applies only to both-hands-flat pairs of (say NS) holdings. There are about 11% pairs of such kind among all possible pairs ...
Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
May be the mathematical contents of my article is complicated. But we try to present a scientific context for EVALUATION OF TENS. Also when considering the opening bid.

Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: KQJ86532 7 AKT 2
Problem is very difficult! I give some hints. 1. The only reason pd bid 5 is that he has A. May be also void in clubs (as offensive value)... 2. We can not count on any other defensive value in hands of pd.

8 is bad. I want E's king, while 8 suggests inserting 9.
Declaring at goulash
It is not that easy Alan (IMHO). We can loose even if spades are 2-3. Playing diamonds gives them a very good possibility to find the real distribution and then to play accordingly.

There exist guys, who open 1NT with S's hand, in normal bridge...
