How would your auction go?
Playing 2C 2D 3M to show a four-card major and long diamonds (usually six) is a very good treatment. Over 3M, responder needs to be able to express interest or lack of interest in game or slam and playing that 4C is an artificial negative showing a trick or less ...
JTx, AQ, Ax, KQT8xx
This hand will often be worth two more tricks than a 4-4-3-2 hand with the same HCP. I would usually take ten tricks in notrump opposite as little as Axxx xx Kxxx xxx. As far as the rebid after opening 1C and partner responding 1S, 2NT stands out since 3NT ...
The standard meaning of this bid
Steve, after opener rebids 3C or 3D, responder knows opener would have bid 2NT or 3NT with a balanced hand and a full stopper (unless opener wants to investigate slam). With a GF hand responder can rebid three of the overcalled major to show a full stopper and play it ...
The standard meaning of this bid
Hi Yu, It can be very important to get opener to be declarer in notrump so that the overcaller is on lead. It is also useful to be able to show a splinter in overcaller's suit although that is not quite as important. However, you can do both. With ...
Support Doubles: How High
With your example hand, I think double, 4C and 4D are all possible bids over 3H. I'd prefer to have five clubs to bid 4C. I would prefer double and then over 3S by partner to bid 4m with very strong 3=1=6=3 or 3=1=5 ...
Support Doubles: How High
I prefer to play support doubles through 3S. The support double above two of responder's suit shows an ace or more above a minimum opening bid. Since it shows 16+ HCP it often has shortness in RHO's suit, at least when playing 15-17 HCP opening 1NT bids. A ...
A New Blue Ribbon Pair, II
Great job, Oren. Well-written and very enjoyable to read.
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
I think it is very likely that it is best to play that 2C in response to a 1M opening shows clubs or a balanced hand and that opener's non-2D rebid over 2C shows something specific (e.g., a six-card major, four of the other major, a second 5-card ...
Too good to sign off?
I play that a new suit is not forcing opposite an overcall so partner's cue bid can be made on a hand that is too good for a single raise in my suit or on a hand that is too good for a non-forcing new suit bid. I don ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A65 --- AT9765 AJ95
I arrived late to this party having just seen this problem (some half a year after the previous last comment). It is surprising to me that so many are assuming that we have found our trump suit and are cue bidding for slam. All we have done for sure is ...
