Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: KT87532 Q75 Q8 J
poor suit, playable in , 2nd hand, nevertheless I would open 3
Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: KQJ9xx x x AKQJx
I am also not sure what 5 means in this biddig sequence. We have a general agreement that a jump/raise to 5M asks for control in the enemy suit. And I frankly cannot see that partner will find another interpretation. I would be happy to bid 4NT followed ...
High level negative double
Doubling 4 with the North hand is madness. Partner will pass with most hands without a fourcard . Bidding 7 with South is remotely understandable, but when partner gambles a slam in a crowded auction you should pass and be glad that you have a suitable hand.
Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: KQJ9xx x x AKQJx
4NT is minors, 5 asks for a control, so you will have to guess. I think bidding 6 is with the odds, so I will bid slam. An interesting question is: what is 4NT (minors) followed by 5? I would not risk it, but could that ...
An interesting hand... advice appreciated...
you have been very lucky that partner did not have long . My partners always bid in my void when I double with such hands. Once you overcall with a simple 3 (keeping your fingers crossed that it will not go all pass), west will presumably still bid 3 ...
Slam decision
sorry, miscounted my tricks.
Slam decision
Without trying to fathom the ins and outs of your system, I have sympathy with South, as Gonzalo Goded also indicates. South has 15 HCP where it could be 18, he has a singleton where it could be three, and he has no extra length in clubs. He has ...
Suit preference or attitude
I agree with Kit Woolsey that SP is only SP when it is 200% SP. In addition, if the default signal is attitude very often a discouraging signal will do the job, as it is often obvious to which suit to switch. Another problem with SP is, that you basically ...
My second ATB
South´s double is ill-advised. South knows that his partner has a club void and 3 or 4 diamonds, and will almost certainly run, even if North thinks that the double is penalty-oriented. And if North thinks that the double is negative matters will be worse, as in this particular ...
Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: JT3 --- KQ AJ987432
It would help to know whether you bid four-cards up the line. If so, 1 is likely to be a five-card (or an unlikely 4333). Even then 5 plays probably better. A pass is unthinkable to me.
