Christopher Moh's bidding problem: KT2 JT9654 AJ7 T
This is kind of the point. There are at least three schools of thought here: (1) We are "forced to whatever we would bid without interference" so we have to bid 3H. (2) Partner has shown heart tolerance and so the law suggests bidding 3H (even though it's doesn ...
Christopher Moh's bidding problem: 973 42 KQT5 QJ87
This hand is in range for a 1 bid. If you had 6511, you would bid 3 instead of 1 (it's still spades or minors, just more shape).

No special partnership agreements -- assume "undiscussed" standard bidding.

Frances, I appreciate the comment. And yes, I am well aware that an extra undertrick at IMPs isn't worth that much. For me, a lot of it is trying to figure out what kind of analysis is instinctive to experts in no-brainer, no-need-to-think kind of situations -- this is certainly ...
Bid the correct grand
On any layout that 7 makes, 7NT also makes (via the line described in OP). I also think that on any layout that 7 makes, 7NT also makes. The converse is not true. So 7NT strictly dominates 7 and 7. However, 7 is not dominated ...
Bid the correct grand
Fair enough. I think with N in control the grand is a lot easier to bid. With S in control it is much harder. Edit: But what do you get to if you had the same hand as N without the J and/or J?
Bid the correct grand
The problem with bidding this hand is that: - If N does not have the J, then you need to play in a trump suit, not NT. - You want to play in rather than other denominations because of communication issues. - If N does not have the J, then you cannot ...
Bid the correct grand
Can you stop in 6H if N denies the J?
Be careful what you wish for...
A trump squeeze is basically a kind of criss-cross anyway. And this is a criss-cross. As David Burn alluded to, your 7 is a threat in the criss-cross. I'm sure nearly everyone reading this knows what the squeeze is, but I'm going to be very explicit for ...
Matchpoint Defense Trick 1
I think you need to give a little more context about the system. If I remember correctly, this is a strong club system where openers are extremely light — can be significantly lighter than even your usual precision opener — except in the case of the hand with long clubs. Also in ...
