1354 and 2353 minimum opener rebids
I haven't run a simulation but tend to raise. Bidding 2C creates a problem when partner has 5 or 6 hearts and a fit for diamonds or clubs. You may end up in 2m instead of 4H. Playing in the minor requires making 2 more tricks than playing in ...
Summer Nationals- my favorite hand!!
Also, I fell from grace in not bidding 6nt.
Summer Nationals- my favorite hand!!
The actual hand was Ax in the long club hand. Without an opening lead 6 makes. The other hand was 1570.
Official Version of New Convention Charts
What about regional pair events that are stratified? The top strat is open but other strats aren't. Is that open, open+, basic, or basic+? I would assume at least open but can easily see an argument for basic+.
Jurijs Balasovs's bidding problem: KQJT6 86 J952 JT
In fact, all 3 of your jacks could be wasted but I would still invite. The J10 could be working as might the J952. I do prefer going through 2 and stopping in 2 but given that's not an option I'm fine with rebidding 2nt.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: KT8 9653 A43 AQ4
Easy to miss a good contract or a chance to push the opps higher by passing. Simple sequence might be 1-1-2-2 by opps. Do you get in after passing? You could easily have a part-score in any of 4 strains and not be able to beat ...
May you bid after partner's hesitation
And even with all of the action at the other side of the table bidding 3 is correct. Partner pulls to 3 and that goes -1(not vul) while 2 makes.
May you bid after partner's hesitation
I would always compete once partner took any action. Here's a slightly different scenario with the same hand. I'm over the 1 opener. The auction proceeds 1-p(me)-2-p-p to me. I am very likely to balance if partner doesn't hesitate but with a ...
some thoughts on a suit combination
There is another consideration. Declarer holding Kxx opposite AJT9xx will get an extra entry to dummy when Qxxx is held over the dummy. A low club to the 9 must be ducked by Qxxx. Use that entry for some purpose and repeat the finesse. Again Qxx must duck to hold ...
Improve your chances #2(Not for experts)
Might be sub-optimal at IMPs also. Danger of an overruff is increased. Might go down if you misguess spades and diamonds. ie, 3rd round overruff, to East, 4th round of . Trumping with the A isn't unreasonable and now you take a finesse in losing to Qx ...
