Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
For the Throat
Thanks for that, Csaba. I'm still interested in views on whether our decision on how high to preempt should: A: continue to be mainly influenced by ***RELATIVE*** vulnerability (unfav/equal/fav); or B: should at least partly be influenced by ***OUR*** vulnerability (because of Kit's "accidents happen" comments ...
For the Throat
Ah, well, that's not the response I was expecting (blush). The "rule" was originally suggested by Ely Culbertson, and I mistakenly assumed it was still well known. Apologies.
For the Throat
Okay, this may just be me getting my thinking tangled up in blue, which happens more regularly nowadays. When I came back to the game, after a short break of 35 years, one of the changes I noted was that the old "rule of two and three" (depending on our ...
Get the Promotion

Kit, you say "on most hands, opener is able to place the contract accurately when he knows the number of controls", and in the article itself you indicate that the general combined strength of the two hands is also important (it's no good having the controls if you can ...
Conceal the Spot
Kit: After 2C-2D, how do you show shortness in a clubs-only hand? I presume by bidding higher than 3C? Which means the 2D query has to be fully up-to-strength?
Explaining partner's bid
No, not like that. There was disagreement on whether 8+ was satisfactory, that's all. The point is, what is actually appropriate. Should South frame their answer to take account of the prior bidding? Should East refer to the prior bidding?
