David Parsons's bidding problem: Q83 AKJ97 A53 86
Sorry -- Double is a single-suited minor or both majors.
What do you signal?
I know — I was agreeing with Peter on leading the K (implying KQ) instead of the A being a “great point.” I was only replying to the later discussion about what to lead if one leads K from KQ.
What do you signal?
The OP says that partnership agreement is to lead the A from AK.
What do you signal?
Great point!
What do you signal?
Partner was indeed 4=5=0=4. He had: KJ92 KJ972 - AKQ2 My thinking was similar to yours as to the confusion on why West would bid 3 with the Ax. In the OP, I discarded the 9, because I didn't want a switch to a diamond ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: T JT932 QT A9843
I see, Paul. That's not at all true at my club...hardly anyone makes Stolen Bid doubles and most play Lebensohl.
David Parsons's bidding problem: T JT932 QT A9843
If partner bids 3, it's not close, Paul. DD Simulation -- with the bidding in the original post, 4 is a 57% likely game here without knowing anything about partner's shape. Partner only needs 3 hearts and a concentration of HCPs outside of spades.
David Parsons's bidding problem: KJT Q8742 74 A52
AQ953 5 T932 KQJ Wouldn't you penalty double with that? 3 makes, by the way.
David Parsons's bidding problem: KJT Q8742 74 A52
Declarer had six diamonds to the AKQJxx and four hearts to the AKJT, and made 3 because he won three heart tricks. Dummy had six clubs headed by the 9 and no HCPs.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: KJ932 A5 AQT KT2
Calling it a maximal X isn't right -- DSI double is better. For example, what if instead of 's the oppts bid 's. A double there would show HCPs and be DSI, but wouldn't be defined as "maximal" because it's not a double of the suit ...
