Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Bidding a Singleton Four Times
Yes, which either means aaron has a type or I am particularly low on bridge friends.
Bidding a Singleton Four Times
spoke to someone about this, and his response was a simple "kickback ftw" which i guess does resolve this.
Bidding a Singleton Four Times
Interesting. I don't know that I have treated it this way above 5 of the trump suit so maybe it's me with the bidding problem!

I think many bidders are very wasteful with their space after blackwood. What would 5S have meant instead of 5N, and can't we invert that so that cheapest step above 5X is the king-ask? Then you can bid 5N with your actual hand. I recognize this was a question ...
XYZ Problem Hand
I've actually played that jumps (so 1x-1y-1z-3c) are distributional and *slammish*. Slammish on power go 2n-3c-blah. All gf without SI go 2D. Not that it's perfect but it at least allows you to limit yourself and keep it low when you're looking for strain for game.

Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Yes, I play so much more teams than pairs. Matchpoints is such a gross game :) :shrug: This is an instructive spot for me - very hard to plan ahead well enough to pitch correctly in tempo.
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
This is actually a really fair point
