Apportion the Blame
Buddy, norths bid of 4d although very bad, is not ambiguous-all would play this as cue in support of h
Apportion the Blame
New suits at fourth level on this type or almost any auction is never natural. Think 3s over 3h is pretty basic, even for novice
David Caprera's bidding problem: 72 QT9642 853 Q7
David, who were the opp, albeit 5 BB wins probably should tell me
An exhortation. - Just open the %$^&^% bidding!!!
The first year I started playing duplicate bridge, I had the pleasure of playing with a guy named Eric and I asked him, why they open all these light(10HCP hands-as a beginner-thought that was light) and he stated Don-the person who bids first wins... yes that is Eric Rodwell
Pass vs Double
would x with both, but would not have upgraded hand-yes, you have 3 aces and good 5 card suit, but qx is bad and 1NT protects that card and shows your hand
Is it a demand or a suggestion?
Think 2c and 4h are really unique(bad) bids
What should 3N mean?
If 3s is slam try, 3nt as spade cue makes a lot of sense
Responsive Doubles - What is "standard"?
I like responsive, but old fashion bridge is penalty-catering to psychs-which I think were common in the past
ATB
I do not like the 6s bid, but south only bid 4s and if have slam opp north hand, south may have started with 4h, therefore think south bid is worse then north-would assign blame of 70/30%-S/N. However, if south thinks north is asking about h suit ...
The Extra Level
As Benito states if you do not lead your singleton, you do not have one...that has been right about 95% in my experience
