T-Walsh: responding with a weak Flannery hand
We play 2 is almost all invitational hands. or to play 2D. 2 is a re-transfer weak or GF 5+. 2 precisely 4-4 majors inv+ (not 4441) 1NT/2NT natural NF/GF 2 inv 4 or to play 3 (or some GF hands ...
Common Leb mishap
I'm normally big on hanging offenders. But when I see the auction go 1NT-(2H)-2NT-3C-P with both players having remembered the system it will be the first. I think I've seen 1NT-2C-2D-2NT-3C-P to reach the best spot...once.
Which minor do you open?
And of course with 3-1-4-5 shape you have a very easy rebid over a natural 1 response...of 1.
Queen of Trumps ask when playing RKCB 1430
If you get a 5/5 response and want to ask for the trump queen, you use the lowest step to do so (with responses according to taste *see below*). By passing the first step to sign off at any level has an obvious meaning. Step two that ...
Lame Claims
I wonder how you would rule if dummy was 1-3 in hearts and clubs. It looks easy to say that on a diamond return declarer might ruff in the wrong hand...except that he needs to be able to get to dummy to take the club finesse he was stating ...
Bot Forum: Perfect Endplay
I'd be interested to know how a bot could be (presumably deliberately) programmed in such a way as not to continue spades at trick two. And whatever the answer, if it is programmed such that a heart shift makes sense please can the organizers re-preprogram them?
Missed game - who was more responsible
Given that the methods are defined, can I suggest that in the cold light of day E/W change x to strong NT, bid 3NT with 18-19 (or x then 3NT) and use 2NT as good/bad? Penalty x here is surely pointless -- if x guarantees 4 trumps how often ...
A Double Standard?
Nicely put. The overall weakness of the club field might be why we have a chance to win. It is rare that they fix you when you could do nothing about it; here you could have done something about it and really there was only one person to blame.
The second card in a suit
Exactly Harald. That was the point.
The second card in a suit
Far harder is to distinguish between the return from four or from five. Third from your three remaining cards doesn't cut it. (A9754 and A975)...if you play the same card back from both, when dummy has 10xx partner wont know how many are cashing with his KJx after ...
