ONSTOTT Wins Roth Swiss
On Friday we needed to win our final match to qualify. When we got to the final board, Jimmy and realized that we really had no plus positions for the first 6 boards as our opponents had played perfectly. I desperately overbid to a hopeless vulnerable 4S and the defense ...
Drew Casen's lead problem: xxx AKTxxx xx Ax
If you lead a trump, you collect 800. If you lead a high heart and switch to a trump, you collect 500. If you lead a high heart and do not shift to a trump, you collect 200. As all games your way go down, your partner's pass of ...
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: T8xx x K9xx KQxx
I like 2. I have clear cut agreements with my regular pards: 3S weak ,3H mixed. This hand is too good for a mixed raise.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: J32 K3 AK42 AJT5
I play 1NT is 11-16 with a 2C range ask from partner allowing me to show 11-12,13-14,or 15-16. After that we have stayman, re-staymen, trans fers, smolen, etc. etc. etc.
Drew Casen's lead problem: AJT97x AJ2 63 42
North south were Lauria-Versace. If you trust their bidding, then partner cannot have a club stopper because there are simply not enough points in the deck for that to be the case. You know you can likely beat this hand if partner has any of the following: Heart king + spade ...
Handicapped Regional Knockout Rules
Jim, I have always said that everything happens for a reason. In this case we got to win the Bracketed Swiss the next day.I have often cheered up a teammate in a swiss team event by thanking them for going down in a cold game and therefore getting us ...
Handicapped Regional Knockout Rules
The 2nd KO started yesterday, and the Directors informed us as we started playing that there would be handicaps, AND notified us what the handicaps would be during the first half of play. Bravo to the competent directors for handling it properly.
Drew Casen's lead problem: QJ83 T72 A94 T86
Not as hard as you think. (1) partner does not have a 5 card major because he did not overcall. (2) He is "PUSHING THE ENVELOPE' with this double (he thinks you might have more and is protecting you, but YOU know you ain't got it). (3) He must ...
Spawned by a hand in the newspaper
If Jimmy Krekorian doubled 3H, he would have a strong NT with a singleton spade. Passing is competition to show a minimum is a concept that we understand. Bidding is competition to show extra shape is another concept we understand. Doubling in competition to show extra points is another concept ...
Is this forcing?
A lot depends on what the partnership agreement is about how much the 2D response in competition promises. Many play that 10 HCP and a 5 bagger is enough. In THAT case, their is a stonger arguement to play 4D as non-forcing. MY preference is to play that the 2D ...
