Peter Flom's bidding problem: T52 AJT742 J Q85
If I played 3NT as a 'good' 4H call, so that I could bid 4H with the same hand with the H9 instead of the Heart Ace, I'd bid 3NT. If 3NT was supposed to show an outside defensive card, then I guess still 4H. Definitely 4H before splintering ...
Jeff Miller's bidding problem: K5 T764 KQJT A83
Jeff, was 3H necessary to deny 3S, 5D, or 4C? (else, why not a 3S raise?) Even with AQ-6th, Ax, Axx, Kx, opener can only count 10 tricks until 6D, then 11 tricks, so is/was 6H intended as "6D wasn't disappointing (but 5NT was still only a courtesy ...
Jeff Miller's bidding problem: K5 T764 KQJT A83
Hard to believe that a majority would pass the 2H overcaller with AQJ(T/x)xx / Ax / Ax(x) / Kx(x) without a(n unlikely) clear partnership agreement. But your 6-1-3-3 (or 6-1-2-4!) 7D construction IS worthy of Thomas Andrew's site.
Open Orlando Discussion <span>Thread</span>
Nice link Ed. Very strange prohibition considering I've never seen a picture of Walt without a moustache. Can you imagine Burl Ives being turned away? http://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/2009/12/walt-disneys-birthday-celebration.html (7th picture down) Upon reflection, I have to wonder if this unwritten dress code wasn't ...
Fearing the 7775 Partnership Suit Distribution
I would be surprised to hear that there was a huge difference in the probability of being stuck with a 7775 partnership distribution between holding 4432 & 4333 hands. I'm guessing we'd be talking less than a 5% variance, so if there's only a 10% chance of that ...
What is the fit worth?
JG's KnR evaluator values/displays the responding hand as a (standalone) 9.0 pt hand. If I recall accurately, that includes an adjustment for the 5th club, so nothing for shortness; with likely longer trump in responder's hand, that seems appropriate.
What is the fit worth?
Jeff Goldsmith's Knr evaluator calls this a 9 point responder.
And Another One Bites the Dust
Suspension? "...He was placed on probation for 13 months and penalized 25% of his total masterpoints. – Aug. 12, 2015"
Mark Kinzer's bidding problem: 6 52 AKJ53 AKJ43
I think I like the idea of 3S (other major) being a good 3C re-bid, rather than the narrower 3-1-5-4 "are your hearts really weak?", if you accept 3C as weak. I wouldn't risk it with this 1-2-5-5 hand (3NT w/o discussion), but I would with the same ...
Jeff Miller's bidding problem: A6 AT43 KQ6 7654
KQ of diamonds vs. some of it in clubs should be worth a raise to slam. The last time I remember "finding" 6D on such an auction (one of the few real benefits in 2/1), we held AJTxx / K / AJTxx / xx opposite Kx / Axxx / Kxx / Axxx. Responder liked Kings ...
