about me

Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 5 7 KJT4 AKQT865
Had we bid 5 at our first turn then it would be the opponents the ones to guess.
Establish your side suit .... or not?
Let me share my thoughts. I do not think it is easy to know what is the best line, since in cases it may depend on how the defenders react and that is not always possible to quantify. It is true that the Q in dummy help us in not ...
Orhan Topal's bidding problem: 87543 A75 7 A963
Something does not add up. If partner had a hand like the one given above, then opponents would have a 9 card heart fit. And they are about to play 2? Of course if you switch two small red cards the hand can still be a take-out double of ...
What is your Drury plan,
Alex, I do not think there is that much to disclose. A long suit trial bid means I have losers in that suit and I need partner to help me cover them. Whether I have AJxx or Jxx is my business and is just bridge. Of course when partner thinks ...
What is your Drury plan,
If I plan to invite after 2, I would prefer to bid 3 instead of 2. Not only I need help there but it may stop opponents to lead that suit. In even if pd has the worst possible holding (i.e. xxx) it is not ...
Art Korth's bidding problem: AKQJ KQJ6 J9 AKQ
Having shown 24-26 the hand is not as good as it seems. Of course we want to play 4 but for slam to be good we need two red key cards. Partner should definitely make a move with that, so I think 4 is sufficient.
Too many questions for a single hand ....
Thank you for your comments. You are right, pass over 5 should not necessarily be forcing (unless agreement) as the NS auction is basically 1-2-4. I was influenced by the fact that South probably intended his pass to be forcing (as otherwise it seems reasonable for ...
Bas Van Der Hoek's bidding problem: QJ9765 T732 --- AJ3
This hand could even try for slam opposite a 1 oppening. So starting with a weak 2 in seems a bit too one-sided even at MPs.
Thomas van der Hoeden's bidding problem: KT3 J753 KQ A632
3 should be a favourite to make, as partner rates to have something like 2-1-3-7 distribution. The point is whether we think we will be allowed to buy the contract and whether opponents can make a contract of their own (do we have too many HCP?). In that case ...
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: KQ72 98 --- AKT9854
Nice hand to try 5, "psychic" Exclusion Blackwood.
