Defense to Strong Club Opening
I sat down for a long match against two World Class players who were playing together for the first time. When I said we played strong club, they agreed on "1NT is majors, 2NT is MORE majors". Never saw that before, but it was a good insight on what they ...
Arrogant or Obvious
Does this hand make Billy Eisenberg's Erdos number -50?
A Different Structure for Transfers over Opponents' One-Level Take-out Doubles
Currently I play XX as a transfer over a Precision 1D, but business redoubles over 1M. Same idea, that it's too often safe for them at the 1-level. I haven't had cause to regret that in my limited playing time. I'm curious if you've run simulations ...
No system bid? Times have changed?
How do you play 1D - 2NT? Is it forcing? My memory of SA is fuzzy but I believe it typically shows either of 12-14 or 18-19. So a reasonable auction: 1D - 2NT (forcing) 3NT - 4NT (quantitative) 6NT My concern about bidding 2C and then 2H is that partner is going ...
Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?

How to find the queen?
60% of the time, it works every time.
David Genne's bidding problem: KJ 752 JT8 AKJT9
Sorry: Qx KQT. Axxx xxxx
David Genne's bidding problem: KJ 752 JT8 AKJT9
I bid 3C at the table. Partner held Qx KQT Axx xxxx and had to act over (2S) - 3C - (4S) He tried 5C, which was doubled for -500. At the other table, first seat did not pre-empt with Txxxxx of spades. 3NT was bid and made without a spade lead ...
Not sure
The thing that stands out the most: Doubling and bidding 2, while strong, is not enough. You're good enough to double and then cuebid diamonds. Imagine if partner had passed 2 holding JT Kxxx xx xxxx. You'd feel sick. (By the way, if I were told ...
Questions about 1NT overcalls
I've never played Meckwell, and I have switched all my partners to Woolsey/Robinson, but many of the principles are the same. 1.) Do you ever allow a single-suit to be a strong 5 card suit? Does it have to be 6+ cards? I do not. 5-3-3-2 is no ...
