Redouble after a Major Suit Raise
I don't see these auctions as identical Marty. In your example there is a known 8+ card fit and an unlimited (or at least wide ranging) opening hand. In the OP, both sides were happy to play 2 in what might have been a 7-card fit. BTW I ...
Penalty or Responsive
I am amazed at the results of this poll by the BW community. Do we really think that in the long term penalty is going to be a winner? Such a small target and so many other hands to express.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AK Q862 9854 763
I would not have chosen 2 to start but having done so could not imagine not bidding 3 over the double.
ATB: Awkward hand from the Roth Swiss
I don't think this is a very good ATB problem as I don't believe many experts would agree with the 4D call. The best ATB problems (if there is such a thing) are ones where each side has made marginal but not ridiculous bids. That's not what ...
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Ax J Q9xxx AQTxx
There is anywhere between 8 and 12 tricks in this hand. I'm not going to guess where we belong if partner has a chance to do something sensible. The upside to this is that we may just find a good slam that otherwise wouldn't be bid. Don't ...
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Ax J Q9xxx AQTxx
I think style is an important factor. For me 2 is very wide ranging opposite a hand that could have responded very weakly. So 3 followed by anything would show a much better hand than this. I think it is just about right for 4 (in tempo ...
Penalty double or something else?
Opponents have found what is likely a 9+ card fit and we want to double them for penalty at the 3 level in the dark?
Alec Fettes's bidding problem: AK984 J85 J6 Q54
I have more defence than offence and for that reason I choose to defend. Of course I could be wrong, but than again I have already endplayed myself because I would never have opened this collection first in hand at unfavourable. Dont get me wrong, I want my partners to ...
Alec Fettes's bidding problem: AK984 J85 J6 Q54
I for one am passing but NOT because my partner has made a penalty double. What is this, 1950?
ATB
The only N/S bid I approve of is 3.
