Board 28 from the 02/20/2017 Common Game
After North opens 1, South has the playing strength to show their distribution. So South responds 1. North now has a difficult rebid. North is a bit heavy for a jump to 3. Some may prefer a game forcing jump shift. Either way, South rebids 3 ...
Board 8 from the 01/02/2017 Common Game
If playing 2/1 GF, South's 2 response is game forcing. So there is not a need to jump to 4. With respect to North's rebid over 2, a 2 rebid is space efficient. If there is a club fit, South has room to ...
Board 13 from the 12/12/2016 Common Game
North does not want to punish South for opening in 3rd seat. North's aceless, flat, quacky hand merits a downgrade. Even opposite a 1st or 2nd seat opener, responding 1NT is reasonable.
Board 5 from the 12/12/2016 Common Game
2 down 1 was a common result. To score 8 tricks, you need to force the defense to break diamonds or give you a ruff-and-sluff. Eliminating hearts and clubs and then going after the spades works. You still need to guess the diamonds.
Tom Allan's bidding problem: AQJ3 KJ93 QT843 ---
If 6 made at your club, it would be good to give a lesson on lightner doubles.
Board 3 from the 11/21/2016 Common Game
A good rule is don't preempt over a preempt. Since 2 would be forcing, a jump shift is often treated as a splinter. With a weak hand and a long suit, responder can pass, planning to introduce their suit if partner balances with a double.
John Moschella's bidding problem: AJT9 KJxxx J Kxx
If partner has a void, they would ask about shape. My King suggests club shortness would be of interest to partner. Would a 3 rebid by responder be forcing? I like 2-3 as a mixed raise. Not fond of the methods here, but opposite a maximum response ...
Board 1 from the 10/31/2016 Common Game
If playing 2/1 GF, a 2 response is game forcing. A 4 bid by South is reasonable since South is a minimum with no honors working in support of North's long suits.
