How should declarer approach 3N? (Part two) SORRY - EDITED
So their agreement is 'If we need to beat the contract by finding partner with AQJx we have to let it through'? Remind me to add this to my list of excuses: I'm sorry partner I wasn't systemically permitted to beat this hand.
FP again
If double shows the values to compete at limit+ values I can see why this should be forcing. But I cannot remember in our partnership if we play it that way!
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Agree absolutely with this. I'm not an expert on Polish but I feel like I've seen enough that if this were anything other than wildly unusual I would know. BTW I think some/many using Polish Club play 1-1-1 may be 3(2 in 3-2- ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Thanks for the sanity check David. I thought I must have missed something. In my years of watching and commenting on bridge I've never seen a strong club opener's first natural call in an uncontested auction be on a three-card suit. This is such a wildly unusual treatment ...
How should declarer approach 3N? (Part two) SORRY - EDITED
Would East really shift to S3 from 1073? Surely he would lead the S!10/7? I think East has 4S and if we run the clubs and they are 5-1 I'd plan to pitch a heart and diamond from dummy and endplay East in hearts. On reflection maybe ...
Putting pressure on opponents quickly versus taking the most chances
Absolutely agree; but I just wanted the caveat that one should not blindly assume that to be so re the SP/count issue.
Putting pressure on opponents quickly versus taking the most chances
A position that comes up a lot is that E/W have a bid suit set out like this: Kxx AQJxx 10xx(x) X(X) Declarer leads towards dummy and West must take the ace. Frequently if declarer has no discard coming route A is right for the defence. If ...
Putting pressure on opponents quickly versus taking the most chances
Maybe I misunderstood the position and the comments above. For me, the first play in spades will be count 100% of the time from West if he doesn't have the ace. Not SP. I can accept that if West wins the ace East will (probably) give SP. Though I ...
A Useful Inversion
Craig: 1-1!R-2NT should be played as multi-purpose; amongst other hands you can include are max-splinters, 6322 hands, gambling 3NT+ rebids and some club one suiters. 1-1-2 doesn't have to be C+S either. So you have a lot of space here.
Can Bridge do something like this?
Glenn Milgrim is taking legal advice; as his regular partner I would invest in a cattle prod (taser?) if this were made legal at the table.
