Dick Vatter's bidding problem: A653 9 K82 JT974
I'm worried that 4S could be misinterpreted as long spades and a modest hand. That leaves 4D as the slam try in clubs.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: --- T87432 97542 A7
The only thing scary I see is partner passing 1SX which is remote on the 1 level in front of the spade bidder. I'm happy to bid 5D next chance I get if the opps are in 4S.
Nutrition/fitness levels of top bridge pros
In my early 20's I had a pulse rate of 39 and I still got tired and sloppy playing multi-day events.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQT964 84 T5 AK9
As I play I'm very unlikely to have 2 hearts if I bid 3D or especially 3S. 3H by partner would now be a suit playable opposite a singleton.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQT964 84 T5 AK9
If I have a singleton heart then I don't bid 3H. With a 6133 I bid 3D with Jxx or Axx else I bid 3S or 3N. Give partner KJTxxx in hearts or better and my heart support is fine. With Qxxxxx I don't think partner is going ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQT964 84 T5 AK9
Partner can still bid 3N over 3H. To me 3D is either the ace trying to rightside 3N or a partial stopper Jxx or Qx. It is not Tx.
Viktor Yotov's bidding problem: Kxx --- AKxxxx JTxx
Partner didn't double 2H so I'll take my chances on a 30 point deck hand and try 5D.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQT964 84 T5 AK9
I don't see what 3D accomplishes that 3H doesn't.
Ian Grant's bidding problem: K984 J76542 J 86
I have a reputation as an active balancer but otherwise quite sound. Why should I bid out of character when partner's hesitation only showed values that the auction made apparent?
Ian Grant's bidding problem: K984 J76542 J 86
I gave up hiding 6 card majors in the 70's.
