IS MY PARTNER INSANE? Part 1
Given what people are now bidding 1D - P - 1H on nowadays, 2S had better be HUGE, HUGE, HUGE.
David Corn's bidding problem: 95432 --- QJT74 AK3
"Love voids". Still love it if partner bids 2H now?
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KJ95432 T 96 542
"Forward going cum cue". My, oh my..... Since my hand is so limited, I presume 2-5 HCP's? I really don't see how 4H can hurt? Picture partner with AQx AJxxxx AKxx void. Darned good grand slam, no? Why give up & just bid 6??
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
We accept gimme's, but don't take our own putts. Also, never take them in tournaments, where every stroke counts. 5-footers, at my level, are, of course, much harder if there is slope or break in the putt, rather than 'straight in'.
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I often employ this on the golf green, when my opponent has a 10-foot putt for birdie & I have a 5-footer for bogey. The amount of times he 3-putts from close range is almost nil.
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
And, this is the type of hand where we come to understand why the makers of card decks put backs on the cards......moving forward could be right, as could passing. You pay your entry, you take your chances.....
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
"They don't play dead rubbers"......oh, my....my mind is racing....
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 75 QJT532 T94 86
Amen, Brother Dave.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: JT875 AT3 --- AKQJ9
MultiLandy. Never heard of it. Abstain, I guess.
Allan Simon's bidding problem: --- AQ9864 Q KT8653
3S is not alertable in ACBL, regardless of its meaning.
