Board 1 from the 12/11/2018 Common Game
To close the loop on this discussion, I talked with Jerry, and the real concern among experts on this auction is that partner with 5-spades and good values 10-11 hcp jumps to 4S. Jerry talked to a number of his partners and they all concur 3NT was the safest bid.

LOL I should probably find a graceful way of exiting an argument (sorry a discussion) with Jerry (I know I not going to win). With better hearts, AKQ83 or maybe KQJ103 or even KQJ93, I would bid 4H because it best describes values of my hand. With North preempting clubs ...

Hi Jerry … I personally don't like 3NT for two reasons: 1) I think 3NT understates West's values, West might bid 3NT with one less king/queen or 16-17 hcp. 2) I don't like hiding a 5-card heart suit KQ753. By doubling first West gets the best of ...

yeah my partners often start out W either for WOW or WTF?

Opening 1S never causes an issue with rebidding, however, opening 1H does sometime cause a problem. Opening 1H and partner responds 1S with a minimum balanced hand of 15 hcp just rebid 1NT with a maximum hand of 17 hcp make a jump rebid of 2NT … with exactly 16 hcp ...

Modern bridge is ALL about finding major suit fits!!! Bidding systems for the last 20 years (Bergen, BROMADs, Jacoby 2NT, Drury, etc. etc. etc.) are designed to define hands after a major suit opening.Why would you want to hide such a beautiful spade suit (the dominant suit) SKQ1093? The ...

If North makes a Takeout Double and then rebids a new suit it would show a different kind of hand, so the only option is bid 3D (yuk!) playing in 3m is like kissing your sister or pass 2S and play in a 5-2 fit in spades. 1st there are ...

WOW 433 (30%) of the tables and 31% of the masterpoints passed this deal out!
Board 1 from the 08/28/2018 Common Game
The philosophy of active ethics tells us that winners should be determined solely by skill, flair and normal playing luck. ie., not playing "the person whom you are playing against", however, we know that (especially in club games) is not the case … this is often referred to as being fixed ...
Board 5 from the 08/21/2018 Common Game
Obviously, I don't like North passing … sitting in balancing seat I think North has to ask the question "Where are the points in this deal?" If East has preempted 3M, it would be different but against 3D all partner has to do is bid 3M.
