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.
Balancing double vs a weak NT.
I play a weak NT and often play against a weak NT. I play penalty doubles in either seat, but the double needs to be fully up to strength (16+) in 4th seat because partner will often fail to find the best lead. In 2nd seat, I will shade the ...
lightner X of 3NT = first or 2nd suit bid by dummy ?
It asks for a diamond because partner will often find the club lead without the double. But partner is VERY unlikely to lead dummy's first suit (likely 5+ cards), without a double.
Standard followups to Minor Suit Transfers
I like to play Stayman followed by 3m as showing 5-4 and a transfer to a minor followed by 3M shows 6-4.
