Mixed BAM - ATB
North should realize that there are good reasons to stay out of this auction - a balanced hand with a poor six HCP, the worst vulnerability for bidding, no fit with partner, the fact that partner will hold a balanced 11 or 12 HCP much more often than a balanced 14 ...
Super-accepting after 1NT opener
If playing 2C as Stayman (my preference is Puppet Stayman), I play Garbage Stayman (some call it Crawling Stayman) where less than invitational hands with both majors are handled by bidding 2C and then bidding 2H over 2D (different versions of this exist). If you don't play that and ...
Super-accepting after 1NT opener
Super-accepts that are designed to have opener describe his hand and then have responder make the game or slam decisions suffer because the responder is in a poorer position to evaluate the quality of the fit than the opener and also because this reveals information about the declarer’s hand ...
Best Percentage Line
Lead a club to the K at T2. If all follow, ruff a diamond, pull trumps ending in dummy and take a diamond ruffing finesse. If South wins a diamond honor, win the major suit return, go to dummy (if not already there) and take another ruffing finesse to set ...
1NT or 1S??
Danny, I play 1M 1NT 2NT is just short of an opening 2NT bid (about 19). Responder can pass or get out in 3M but obviously game is usually reached. With 17 or 18 I rebid a new lower-ranking suit at the two-level just as I would with 14 but ...
1NT or 1S??
Hand 1 is clearly stronger than its 17 HCP because of the strong five-card suit, multiple honors together in two other suits and the tens together with the higher honors. I think it is equivalent in strength to most 19 HCP hands. Hand 2 is worth slightly less than its ...
Is this Good Bad 2N or something else?
There is significant value in playing good-bad 2NT on the given auction and maybe even greater value when your LHO jumps to 2M and it is passed back to you. Playing good-bad 2NT, if you bid 2NT partner will bid 3C with longer clubs than diamonds else bid 3D (achieving ...
Is this Good Bad 2N or something else?
Good-Bad 2NT allows you to distinguish between competitive hands and invitational hands. For example, on the given auction, between xx xx KQxxxx Qxx and xx xx AKxxxx Kxx. GB2NT is useful both by the responder and by the opening bidder [e.g., 1H (P) 1NT (2S) and you as the ...
Interesting 6NT Play Problem( messed up article)
John, That pause you are mention is the two-second hesitation that guarantees that they don't have it. That is not done by good players. However, it is often seen in club games by players that have been doing it for many years and who don't ever realize that ...
Interesting 6NT Play Problem( messed up article)
Hi Finn, Even if you had opened 1S and rebid 2NT over 2C, Emma might have put you in 6NT knowing how well you play the dummy! Ricard's line is certainly reasonable. Another line worth considering is to overtake the heart return with the ace, cash the J ...
