Eric's generic 2/1 card
Copy to my cards View/Print
Your opinion on partner's opening bid Gatlinburg KO.
".., accept them gratefully" Surely that was supposed to be "gracefully" not "gratefully"? :) But kidding aside, you make a good point. Striking first with 66 hands is winning bridge even if this time it turned a -620 into a -790. I don't know about the rest of us, but all ...
Your opinion on partner's opening bid Gatlinburg KO.
The first two poll choices are worded in a way assumes that light openings are what distinguish an expert from us plebes.... whereas light openings are more a stylistic thing.
You be the commentator
Maybe fill the gap with some speculation about whether 6D is either better or reachable? I'm having trouble coming up with any line in 6NT that's likely to work against opponents who won't play their pointed kings prematurely.

I'd pass, but as I put down the dummy I'd be saying "If 2S turns out to matchpoint better, I apologize".

"... or so his profile said" The Dunning-Kruger effect is strong everywhere, but nowhere as strong as when someone is filling out an online profile.
Can being fully ethical be unethical?
.... And if the alert is required because the bid denies hearts (presumably we'd be doing something else with spades and hearts) then original poster's problem is solved simply by providing that explanation. The opponents get the the negative inference about hearts to which they are entitled, and original ...
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: 962 AJ87 832 763
> Partner said he has extra values. Did they? It doesn't take much to balance over 2H at matchpoints... I wouldn't read that second double as showing much more than a reasonable belief that 2H undoubled won't matchpoint very well for us.
Not so OK? (Bridge)
Huh - and then a few days ago the problem healed itself.... So your friend might want to try again and see if it's working now. No communication from OKB, so I doubt that the miraculous cure was a response to my months of unanswered pleading
