Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Inverted Minors
Maybe, but neither of us has denied a 4 card major.
What is minimum for takeout double part I 4441
I suspect the poll would be different if matchpointed pairs was stipulated.
Inverted Minors
I only play inverted raises in diamonds because my 1C isn't natural, however we play 1D-2C! As an inverted raise in diamonds which lets opener bid 2D with a minimum opener. We play weak NT and 5cM.
How do we avoid this disaster?
Paul: I'M m not a particularly strong player and neither is my partner; however we do know each other's game pretty well. I would be amazed if my partner had led from KT2 even in the only unbid suit. The J is not going to block the suit.
BetaBridge? A bit better?
BBO is not the only online place to play Bridge, at least one site does not tolerate unpleasantness.
How do we avoid this disaster?
I don't think it matters too much what illusion I create, partner has nothing better to do than continue clubs.
How do we avoid this disaster?
Oops. (But I still would have returned the JC).
BetaBridge? A bit better?
Michael: Cars and planes don't run like humans do; but I can see the day when robots will. Crossword puzzles and sudokus aren't normally competitive events.
BetaBridge? A bit better?
I hope it's never, why do humans even bother playing chess anymore?
How do we avoid this disaster?
South should return JC; declarer can't have more than 2 clubs unless we think North has made a psychic lead.
