Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
Namyats traditionally has an upper limit (8.5 - 9 tricks as I know). Let's say you open 4. Partner bids 4. And now? 6?
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
An option, we play like this: - 1: NAT, F1 (rarely GF, can be played as passable) - 2: any GF hand, start of a relay sequence - 1-2: suit (6+ weak, or 5+ INV, some special GFs) - 2M-1: INV with support (mostly 3 cards) Another option if ...
Slam invite question
About 10 years ago I had a similar poll on my homepage, where someone suggested that with 1-suiter it is better to use 5 to look for control because that way we can rightside the contract when partner has Kx.
Surely not another missed game with 10 trumps
We (I mean a lot of good hungarian players, if such thing exists :)) play that XX then minimal return to partner's major shows limit raise with 3 trumps. A cheap way to raise, better then 3M-1, especially if you open light.
Surely not another missed game with 10 trumps
100 % East: 2 means "sorry, I should not have opened, but have 6 hearts"
ATB -- Missed slam
West should have bid 3 splinter. Easy. East had hard time, 3 may lead to a misunderstanding. 3 (cue bid or lack of spade stopper, what a nice meaning) makes some sense, 3nt is a bit unthinking. Perhaps 4 or 5. Was it IMP or ...
...and it all went horribly wrong...
With 8-12 hands strong opener can ask responder's hand: 1 - 2 _ 16+ // 8-12, 1-suiter 6+ 2N - 3 _ relay // short 3 - 4 _ ORKC // good hand, 0/3 keycard 4 - 4N _ kings? // K, no K 5 - 5 ...
18 bids in a row
The longest sequence I could construct and can make sense in our system: 1 - 1 16+ // 8-12, 4+ or BAL 1 - 1N R // BAL 2 - 2D R // 4 2 - 2 R // 4 2N - 3 R // 2, that is 4 ...
How to reach 4!s?
Believe it or not, we play explicitely that way. It's not my invention, most players I know play that 2 is the hand that would have raised an undisturbed 1 to 2, but this time surely 4 cards, while 1 is 3. It makes sense even ...
How to reach 4!s?
If west opens the bidding, it is not too hard: 1 - (1) - X = 4+ 1 (exactly 3) - 2 stopper? 2 (no) - 3 half stop? 3 (no) - 4 It is much harder if north or east opens.
