Bridge is Sixty Percent Bidding?
At the top level, it may actually be more than 60% At the club game level, it is probably 30 to 40%.
USA2 Wins Bermuda Bowl
Congrats! Amazing win
The 5 level belongs to: __________
I have recently switched to forcing at this vulnerability with my regular partner. I was dead set against the idea for many years, but the advantage of a forcing pass here is huge. You can pass with the given hand and suggest 5H, which is just perfect on this hand.
Spingold Deal
I was the declarer at the other table. Trick 1 went K, ruff, 4, 5. With the 2 and 3 missing, the position was not that clear to Lindqvist. He found the right defense after long thought.
DIAMOND Wins Spingold
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Hi Jeff, Congrats for the Vanderbilt! Do you and Eric change strategy for the few times you guys play matchpoints/board a match ? With a 1453 or 1435 shape over 1D-1S, would you be more tempted to bid 1NT at matchpoints ? Thanks, Fred
How do you play the diamonds?
With 8 of them, it's an absolute guess. With a 7 card suit, A then Q would be a better percentage play.
How do you play the diamonds?
Both plays have the exact same probability of being successful
Is opening 2C with this hand an illegal psychic?
Let's say I hold Axxxx x Axxx Axx. My RHO opens 2C. Do I bid? Of course not. If my RHO holds x AKQJ10xxxxx x x, we could easily have a game. A 1NT or 2NT opening can be psyched, but a 2C opening can't be. To me ...
Is opening 2C with this hand an illegal psychic?
I would but unfortunately 7C makes!
