Board 3 from the 10/16/2017 Common Game
North's LTC of 6 suggests accepting the invitation. North's 16 Support Points merits a downgrade for the doubleton honors. Even so, many would reasonably accept the game try. At worst, North's hand is worth a counter game try.
Board 5 from the 10/16/2017 Common Game
South's 3 Bergen response is quite conservative. Now when West overcalls 3 and North bids 3, South doesn't know whether North is competing or bidding to make. So it is not a forcing pass situation after West bids 4. When North doesn't double ...
Board 7 from the 10/16/2017 Common Game
Don't understand how opener can pass 3 after game forcing with a jump shift.
Board 5 from the 09/04/2017 Common Game

Great question about the double
Board 2 from the 07/24/2017 Common Game
Amazing to pass twice with South's hand. Reaching 5C isn't reasonable, but surely competing and finding their club fit is better than defending 1. Unfortunate declarer played for 10 doubleton. Was -50 below average at your club. Across the common game, it scored 88% for EW.

Board 25 from the 07/17/2017 Common Game
Thanks for posting. Nice bidding to reach the slam. I like the dummy reversal line. Generally, The Common Game commentators try to write about board which are played at more clubs. The higher board numbers don't see as much play. Consequently, they are less likely to be addressed in ...
Board 2 from the 07/10/2017 Common Game
Restricted choice doesn't apply with Queen Ten.
Board 9 from the 07/10/2017 Common Game
Sorry to hear the unusual auction at your table made it difficult to reach slam. Not sure if 3 is forcing in your partnership. If not forcing, a cue bid is preferable. Either way, East cannot pass 4.
