1z rebid by opener after 1y response by passed hand.
A 1z rebid, in Standard, is not forcing. The upper range is open to agreement, but those you've listed are a bit low (in my opinion). More like an upper range of---up to a "bad" 18. Otherwise rebid a non-forcing 2NT, or jump-shift to 2z. With the "perfect" 17 ...
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Also, the part about a reverse being a non-jump. So that: 1 - 1 - 2 is a reverse, and 1 - 1 - 2 is a jump-shift.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Yes, Art, a fundamental disagreement. :) I believe a simple poll asking the forcing nature of a reverse (with the caveat that responder was a passed hand) would result in an overwhelming majority agreeing that it is still forcing.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
No, the "missing factor" is that responder never responded and could very possibly be the proud owner of a zero count. Even if responder were a passed hand, if he intitially responded (for simplicity let's show an auction with no interference), then a reverse is still 100% absolutely forcing ...
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Frances, yes, apparently there are a few:
Todd Holes's bidding problem: K64 4 AJ9754 A82
How many spades is 1?
Is this 3!d bid forcing?
Playing reverse-by-opener as a game-force is what you prefer to play . . . or what you believe to be "standard"?
What is 3D?
Something like: K AQJ97 A85 KJ42 Non-forcing. Importantly, since 2 was not forcing, I find it difficult to fathom how 3 can be forcing. But a good hand nevertheless.
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
TeeHee @ Cornelia. Yes, my partner bids 2. No, we do not "miss our spade fit." I next bid my spades and--guess what?--show spades, all in the same bid. It's not artificial, my partner knows they are real. If partner has spades too--she tells me by raising. You ...
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
"I have never seen any reason to bypass 4 spades at the 1 level." Your partner opens 1. You have: KJT7 A3 A KQJ963 If I respond 1, I'm begging my partner to rebid 2. True, I can "force game" with 3. And still, I ...
