Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Runout Systems Poll
Halmic with one partner. SWINE with another.
Defense after opponents open weak NT followed by Stayman
Without agreement, double shows clubs. But I prefer double to say "I was about to make a penalty double of 1NT".
Four-suit transfer followed by 3M
We play Stayman, then 3m shows 5-4. Transfer, then 3M shows 6-4.
Lecture--"Balancing"--Tips Requested
I seem to remember reading somewhere: "Don't punish partner for protecting". As long as you trust partner to remember this, you can protect aggressively.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: T953 97 963 AK83
If it's important, it was a 32 board teams of 8 match. IMPs converted to VPs.
Delayed 2S by opener show extra or possibly weak 6??4 ?
For me, 2H is long hearts in a weak hand with no tolerance for your suits. 2S shows A likely void, or possibly a singleton heart and is an attempt to find a better place to play - at least six spades, probably seven spades.
Questionnable ruling
Steven: with non-touching, probably pass forces a redouble and then bid the lower suit.
Capitalize Convention and Treatment Names?
Coming from this side of the Atlantic, I feel strongly that convention names should be capitalised but never capitalized!☺
Andy Stark's bidding problem: J82 KQJT9 QT753 ---
Easy for us. I open 2 - Lucas Two, showing a two-suiter (5-5 at this vulnerability).
Balancing Strong Players at a Local Club Game
Players select a card with a table number / direction when they arrive. Simple.
