David Coles's bidding problem: Q764 T K9754 J98
I was a bit surprized also. Was expecting it to be around 60-40 for pass
6S, best playline?
A, ruff a club, heart to the queen, ruff a club. A, Q. A, K, pitch a diamond. If all goes well, decide which is safer, diamond to the ace or heart ruff to make 7. If spades are 4-1, you are still making if ...
David Coles's bidding problem: J854 AKQ9874 5 K
Sorry. Fit showing jumps not part of our agreements.
Is there a standard meaning for this bid?
I probably should have divided strong into GF and non-forcing...Sorry
David Coles's bidding problem: A985 AQJ6 AJ865 ---
Bob, I think this was a great analysis. I debated between passing and bidding 2. In retrospect I like your approach. I bid 2. Partner's hand: KJx 10xx Qxx 8xxx. Opponents can cash 6 clubs vs NT. Spades are QTxx onside, hearts Kx onside, diamonds Kx offside ...
Should prolific flaggers be counselled, investigated, audited, or at least identified?
I believe there should be a penalty (suspend flagging capability?) for frivolous flagging as there is in bridge for frivolous appeals.
Jay Barronen's bidding problem: AQx x AKxx Kxxxx
3NT. Has a chance to make. But, more importantly, don't want them to find 9-card heart suit.
Jay Barronen's bidding problem: AKT85 2 KQT87 JT
4NT. Over partner's minor bid, 5, letting partner know I'm interested in more.
Daisuke Sugimoto's bidding problem: AKQxxx --- AKQJxx x
Do you really want to take the chance pard will pass 4? How about 3 then 5 exclusion BW over partner's 3NT, 4 or 4 bid. If partner shows none, pass his 5 bid. If partner shows 1, bid 6.
David Coles's bidding problem: T Q532 KJ AKQJT4
I admire your chutzpah. But if 3NT is the right spot, isn't partner likely to bid it over double?
