A few Walsh Questions...
Regarding opening 1 on 4-4 in the minors, I should have said that this was the style used by the leading players of the Walsh System (Richard Walsh, Rhoda Walsh, John Swanson, Paul Soloway, Jerry Hallee). However, the choice of which minor to open was not an element of ...
A few Walsh Questions...
What Phil Clayton said (1st comment) is pretty accurate. If bidding boxes were used when the Walsh system was initially played, the 1 bidding card would have remained in very good condition because it would rarely have been used. In the Walsh system, opener bid 1 rather than ...
1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
The question was "Alertable?" and the two possible choices were #1 "Yes, because {paraphrasing} you want the opponents to be fully informed" and #2 "No, no alert required." Choice #1 is a response expressing an opinion on behavior and choice #2 is a response stating a bridge regulation. The two ...
1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
I don't know if the bridge laws require an alert but I think that the 1NT rebid should be alerted if the range is different than what you think your opponents will expect. I do not want the opponents to be at a disadvantage because my HCP range is ...
Missed (Grand) Slam
If the 2 bid showed AKxxx or better in , then east just failed to count his tricks. He should expect four (partner bid the suit), five (probably requiring a ruff to set up the fifth opposite AKxxx when playing in ) and four black ...
A variety of Morton’s Fork
Finn, This is a nice hand. It reminds me of one of my favorite hands. Years ago John Mohan and I reached 6NT on a 1NT – 6NT auction with AKJT T9x QTx AKx in dummy opposite Qxx KQJx AJ9x Qx in John’s hand. You might look at this hand ...
common game deal best line for 6NT
Kerry, the 69.44% is for three or more diamond tricks. That percentage includes the two occurrences of QJ doubleton (total of 3.23%) which produce four diamond tricks. But it does mean the 67% estimation of producing exactly three diamond tricks is really 66.21%.
common game deal best line for 6NT
As stated above, playing AKx of diamonds produces 3 diamond winners 67% of the time and a 3-3 spade split or a black suit squeeze will produce the 12th trick about 47% of the time. However, there are also two occurrences of QJ doubleton of diamonds (slightly over 3% total ...
Major Disagreement with NT Interference
I think there will be too many poor results if the major-suit bids over 1NT can be either four or five cards in length. The obvious disadvantage is that playing a 4-2 fit will invariably produce a bad score but also partner is poorly placed to judge whether to bid ...
Takeout or Penalty
I don't agree that there is no right answer. Do you want two bids for takeout or one for takeout and one for penalty? Clearly 2NT is for takeout. If you play double is also takeout, you can use 2NT for a weak distributional takeout (x Jxxxx xx QTxxx ...
