Best Defenses against Strong One Club opening bids
I am convinced that the only reason to bid over a strong club is when you have a long suit unbalanced hand or a 5-5 or better two suited hand. If opponents had opened a strong NT bidding a one suited hand makes sense, therefore I play that all 2 ...
Opening two of a major in 4th seat
We play reverse drury after 4th seat openers, so rebidding the suit shows a questionable opener. After three passes a normal distribution has partner with 7-8 points, so two level may not be a total disaster.
Opening two of a major in 4th seat
I play that fourth seat two bids are strong, showing a six card suit and 15+ points. There does not seem to be any reason for pre-empts in that position.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: 7 QT9762 KJ9742 ---
I pass and come in later. Been burned by opening a similar hand in past, since it was impossible to get partner to understand the limitations. Bidding 2H with a second 6 card suit is also problematic.
LC Standard -- Strong 2!C Opening
Simplicity is a big bonus for most intermediate players. Loss of the occasional 1100 is a price to pay. We double to show negative, because that gives opener the option of converting to penalty. Since they are the big hand, they are more likely to be in a position to ...
Why do BBO robots vary their opening leads on duplicated auctions
I have also noticed the same bidding, while watching the kibitz for a hand that I had played, did produce two different leads. I just assumed the first bot was the professional bot while the second bot was my 5 MP mentee. But it is only a game and at ...
ACBL Approves Universal Use of Mid-Chart
This sounds like a possible use of "Bid Coins",. Oops meant Bit Coins. Nice April fool story.
Best Defenses against Strong One Club opening bids
I think that the message here is find a system and make sure the partnership is on the same page. I have found that in a pairs competition, the brain drain is too much since you are only playing 2-3 hands against those opponents. In a team game, where you ...
Judgement call after BIT
My interest is in the decision based upon peer players. How does the director decide who a peer of the player is. I was involved in a Bit by my partner at a recent regional. This partner is frequently slow in bidding, so I take little information from his delays ...
The Worst Agreements in Bridge
Perhaps the worst conventions are the ones only one player remembers. At the pro level with pages of system notes the discussions are very worthwhile. At my level of Intermediate/Advanced play with as many as six different partners a month, every convention can prove fatal. So the gain has ...
