Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
You dug this hole...
@Henrik, This one's easy. "We've got at least 25 points between us, a 10-card fit and a 9-card (or better) fit. I want to investigate a slam, but I want to divert a diamond lead."
Failed attempt for a doubled overtrick
Pretty low price for friendship.
Room for Saturday - SF
Phil should be grateful he's still able to post here.
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Mike Lawrence sees it as an exploit. You see it as a weapon. I don't know if it can be both at the same time.
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Michael, here's where my problem with the adjustment lies: - South claims that he originally took as 4NT as quantitative. I have no reason to doubt that with the facts presented. This is not a gray area, this is very binary - he either did or he didn't. If it ...
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Michael, - When I wrote "quick" I meant that exactly - quick 5NT. Shotgun-like. The actual reason for the shotgun DOES NOT HAVE TO BE "we're off two aces" (for example partner had anticipated my 5 response and already knew that he would rebid 5NT over it). Whether this action ...

Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
"if the BIT didn't wake South up to the fact that 4NT was quantitative, not Blackwood" Sorry, South explicitly said: "After the deal, director came back and asked S what was 4N. S said Quantitative invite and he accepted as he had 1 more HCP than minimum along with ...
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Let's review the situation from South's perspective. I bid 5, and partner goes into visible considerations. How does that change my perception of the following 5NT bid? To me quick 5NT would be "we're off two aces", and a pause "I am sorry, I am just ...
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
I would like to hear the director's reasoning how 5NT after a pause delivers the "it's NOT the king ask" versus a quick 5NT.
